"His performances stand out for the refined balances and original ideas about both tempos and phrasing. I consider Andrea Vitello one of the most promising young conductors of his generation."
ANDREA VITELLO has recently gained an international reputation thanks to his Warner Classics CD with I Solisti della Scala, praised with words such as: "imposing performance" (Enrico Girardi, il Corriere della Sera), "highest standards of intonation and blend" and "beautifully lyrical and detailed" (Remy Franck, Pizzicato), “Fabulous” (Colin Clarke, Fanfare), “sharp and accurate” (Angelo Foletto, La Repubblica).
Andrea has conducted in venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York, Seul Art Center in Seul, Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari, Sala Verdi in Milan.
His discographic debut on the podium of the Ensemble BIOS, with Arnold Schönbergs’s Pierrot Lunaire, featuring Anna Clementi as a soloist, has raised international critic’s enthusiastic attention (American Record Guide, Das Orchester, Limelight Magazine, Musica Magazine, Amadeus etc…) and is considered a “One must have” recording of this piece, along with Pierre Boulez’ and Giuseppe Sinopoli’s ones.
He collaborates with several orchestras and ensembles such as the Soloists of La Scala Opera House, MáV Symphony Orchestra Budapest, Thessaloniki Symphony Orchestra, Korea Soloists Orchestra Seul, Argento Ensemble New York, Koszalin Philarmonic Orchestra, Khabarovsk Symphony Orchestra.
Andrea Vitello is a keen interpreter of the contemporary repertoire. He conducted premiéres -both in concert and recording- by authors such as Peter Eötvös, Tristan Murail, Oliver Schneller, Andrea Portera, Alessio Elia, Albertas Navickas, Rita Ueda and promotes young composers discovering and conducting their music.
Andrea is also an enthusiast ambassador of Italian music and rediscovered and conducted several neglected works by less known Italian composers, such as Guido Alberto Fano, Silvio Omizzolo, Mario Pilati, Gian Francesco Malipiero.
