Giorgio Mezzanotte


About me

Born in Milan, Giorgio Mezzanotte Nehamas was educated at the Franco Ferrara school, after gaining a diploma in Composition with Luciano Chailly (whose Missa Papae Pauli he recently conducted) and a diploma in Piano with Alessandro Santinelli. A finalist in three international competitions – the Gui prize, the Cantelli prize and the Ansermet prize – he has collaborated with major Italian orchestras (including ORT – Orchestra della Toscana, Orchestra Haydn, the Mantua Chamber Orchestra, the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Chamber Orchestra, Marchigiana Symphony Orchestra, Abruzzese Symphony Orchestra) and with the Camerata RCO (Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra), Thüringen Philharmonie, WDR Köln-Rundfunkorchester and the Symphonieorchester der Wiener Volksoper. The first guest conductor of the Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa (Japan), he has also conducted recordings for RAI (Radiotre), for Westdeutsches Rundfunk of Cologne and for the SKY Classica channel.

He was recently acclaimed as follows: “The high musical calibre is perceived in the sensitivity, enthusiasm and rigour with which the major problems of the works on the programme are tackled and resolved in artistic truth, emphasising the expressive content.” (L. Bellingardi, Corriere della Sera)
