Vittorio Ghielmi

Vittorio Ghielmi is an Italian musician, conductor, composer.
Compared by critics to Jasha Heifetz for his virtuosity, and described as “An Alchemist of sound” for the intensity and versatility of his musical interpretations, Vittorio Ghielmi attracted notice while still very young for his new approach to the viola da gamba and to the sound of early music repertoire.
He is Professor for viola da gamba and Head of the Institut für Alte Musik at the Mozarteum Universität Salzburg and Visiting Professor at the Royal College of London. He is graduate at the Università Cattolica di Milano.
He was born in Milan, Italy, where as a child he began his study of music with the violin and later the viola da gamba. In 1995 he was the winner of the "Concorso Internazionale Romano Romanini per strumenti ad arco". His fieldwork within old musical traditions surviving in forgotten parts of the world and bringing new perspectives to the interpretation of European "early music" led to him being presented the “Erwin Bodky Award”.
He studied the viol with Roberto Gini, Wieland Kuijken and Christophe Coin.
