- Kavakos, Leonidas (Violin) That Greek violin virtuoso Leonidas Kavakos had a rare gift was apparent early on. Born into a family of musicians, he took up his instrument at the age of five. By 18 he was ready to make his concert debut at the 1984 Athens Festival; a year later, he became the youngest contestant to date to win the prestigious International Sibelius Competition—a turning point in the young musician’s career that brought his name to international audiences. Kavakos has recorded numerous albums and given critically acclaimed performances around the world, appearing alongside renowned ensembles such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. He is especially well known for his fine interpretations of Beethoven’s violin sonatas.
- Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia (Orchestra) Founded in 1908, the world-renowned Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia has been conducted by some of the major musical figures of the 20th century, including Sibelius, Mahler, and Strauss, and later Riccardo Muti, Valery Gergiev, and Kurt Masur.
Sir Antonio Pappano has been Chief Conductor of the Orchestra dell' Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia since 2005. The highly successful collaboration has brought the Orchestra to music festivals like the Proms in London and the Lucerne and Salzburg Festivals, as well as concert halls including the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Philharmonie in Berlin, and the Musikverein in Vienna. The Orchestra has its home in the impressive Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.
