Artists Management Company Ltd. based in Zurich, Switzerland, is proud to welcome the Italian conductor ALESSANDRO BONATO to its roster of conductors managed by Ettore F. Volontieri. AMC will represent Alessandro exclusively worldwide. He joins AMC's illustrious roster which includes Karen Durgaryan, Alevtina Ioffe, Gianandrea Noseda, Jérémie Rhorer, Donato Renzetti, Daniele Rustioni and Yutaka Sado.
Alessandro Bonato recently turned 25 and gained the attention of the music industry after winning the third prize at the Malko International Competition in Copenhagen at the age of 23. Born in Verona, Bonato studied violin from the age of 11 and later composition at his native city conservatory. He was soon encouraged to take conducting lessons from Vittorio Bresciani and beginning in 2013 studied intensively under the guidance of Pier Carlo Orizio, Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli and Donato Renzetti.
In March 2016 Bonato made his debut as professional conductor at the Royal Opera House of Muscat, Oman with The Magic Flute. In March 2019 he conducted a production of La cambiale di matrimonio in Pesaro celebrating the 150th anniversary of the death of Gioachino Rossini.
Bonato’s symphonic activity is equally developed and he has already conducted orchestras such as the the Filarmonica della Scala, the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai, the Filarmonica of the Festival Pianistico Internazionale di Brescia e Bergamo, the Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali di Milano, the Arena di Verona Orchestra, the Orchestra Filarmonica Marchigiana, the Orchestra Sinfonica Siciliana and the Orchestra Bruno Maderna in Italy, as well as the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra abroad.
Ettore F. Volontieri, Head of deh Artists Management Department of AMC:
«Alessandro represents the very fresh and new generation of Italian conductors who will perpetuate the tradition that has produced so many extraordinary musicians and music leaders. I am very proud to now represent four generations of Italian conductors with Alessandro joining Donato Renzetti, Gianandrea Noseda and Daniele Rustioni. There is a strong hope here that music will never stop as nature will continue providing us amazing talents and it is our responsibility to help them flourish and realize their individual musical visions.»
Alessandro Bonato on joining the AMC roster:
«I have been dreaming to join AMC’s roster which features so many exciting Maestri whom I have admired from the very moment I decided to become a professional musician.
