Franco Caracciolo (b1920)

Riccardo Chailly was born into a musical family: his father, Luciano Chailly, was a composer and held a number of senior administrative posts in Italian music, including the music directorship of RAI, the Italian broadcasting service, and several top positions in major Italian opera houses. (He is not related to Jacques Chailley, an eminent French musicologist and also a conductor.) Riccardo studied composition with his father and with Bruno Bettinelli at the Milan Conservatory, and conducting with Piero Guarino in Perugia, Franco Caracciolo in Milan, and Franco Ferrara in Siena. He made his conducting debut with I Solisti Veneti in Padua when only fourteen and at the age of nineteen was engaged as assistant conductor to Claudio Abbado for the symphonic concerts given by the Orchestra of La Scala, Milan. In 1974 he made his American conducting debut with Puccini’s Madama Butterfly at the Lyric Opera of Chicago; further important operatic debuts included La Scala, Milan (I Masnadieri, 1978) the Royal Opera Company, Covent Garden (Don Pasquale, 1979), the Metropolitan Opera of New York (Les contes d’Hoffmann, 1982) and the Salzburg Festival (Macbeth, 1984).
