violonchelo, Mario Brunello
Mario Brunello made his breakthrough in 1986 as the first and only Italian ever to win the coveted International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. His success was built on studies with Adriano Vendramelli at the Conservatorio di Musica Benedetto Marcello di Venezia and with Antonio Janigro. Brunello’s heartfelt playing has secured engagements with such leading conductors as Antonio Pappano, Valery Gergiev, Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Chailly, Vladimir Jurowski, Riccardo Muti, Daniele Gatti, Manfred Honeck and Myung-Whun Chung, and concerto performances with many of the world’s foremost ensembles, from the London Philharmonic, London Symphony, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestras to the NHK Symphony Tokyo, Kioi Sinfonietta, the Filarmonica della Scala and Accademia di Santa Cecilia.
