director de orquesta, Tito Ceccherini
Among the most learned and profound conductors of his generation, Tito Ceccherini is highly appreciated for the extraordinary lucidity of his interpretations and the remarkable versatility of his approach to the repertoire. An acclaimed interpreter of the modern repertoire, he has delved into the classic works of the 20th century: from Bartók, Debussy and Ravel, to Schoenberg, Webern, Ligeti. His operatic repertoire, that also shows his penchant for the early 20th-century (Bluebeard’s Castle, From the house of the dead, Il Prigioniero, The Rake’s Progress), also testifies a deep knowledge of the Italian melodrama and a special attention to belcanto, where he has proven to be able to reconcile stylistic properties and modern sensibility. He is also appreciated in the interpretation of Mozart’s operas, and for his talent in creating new works (Sciarrino’s Da gelo a gelo and Superflumina; Fénelon’s La Cerisale at the Bolshoi and the Opéra de Paris; Hurel’s Les pigeons d’argile in Toulouse). Highlights of the upcoming engagements include the returns to the Frankfurt Opera (Bellini: I Puritani), to the Philharmonie de Paris (Haydn: Il Mondo della Luna), to the Teatro La Fenice in Venice (Sciarrino: Luci mie traditrici), as well as concerts at the Biennale of Venice with the Haydn Sinfonieorchester, and with the SWR Sinfonieorchester in Donaueshingen, Essen and Freiburg. Tito Ceccherini’s recordings (Sony, Kairos, Col legno, Stradivarius, etc) have been awarded with Choc de Monde de la Musique, Diapason d’Or and Midem Classical Awards.
