Francesco La Vecchia

Born in Rome, Francesco La Vecchia studied with his maternal grandfather and gave his first concert at the age of nine. At the age of 18 he became leader of the Boccherini Quartet, at 23 he founded the Arts Academy of Rome and, at the age of 27, he began his international recording career. In 2002 he took up the position of artistic director and resident conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma. Under his leadership the orchestra rapidly achieved success in highly successful visits to St Petersburg, Madrid, Belgrade, Brussels, Rio de Janeiro, London, Athens, Berlin, Beijing and Vienna. Francesco La Vecchia has also conducted at many prestigious venues, including the Kennedy Center, Washington, Carnegie Hall, New York, the Art Center, Seoul, the São Carlos National Theatre, Lisbon and the Roy Thomson Hall, Toronto. The ‘Maestro’ series of recordings, named after him, was first released in 1999. Since then he and the Rome Symphony Orchestra have recorded for Naxos (an important and wide-rangng series of works by 19th- and 20th-century Italian composers, including many world première recordings), Brilliant Classics (Respighi) and Sony (Beethoven). He has been the recipient of several important official awards in Italy and abroad.
