Mario Venzago

Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of Berner Symphonie-Orchester for eleven years until summer 2021, Mario Venzago had previously served as Principal Conductor or General Music Director of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Basque National Orchestra, Sinfonieorchester Basel, Oper Graz and Grazer Philharmonische Orchester, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Frankfurt (now Bremen), Theater Orchester and Philharmonisches Orchester Heidelberg, and Musikkollegium Winterthur. During the 2021 / 22 season, he guest-conducted the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, Oregon Symphony, Copenhagen Phil, Tampere Filharmonia, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern, Staatskapelle Halle, and Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, among many others. His recordings have won international prizes, including the Grand Prix du Disque, Diapason d’or, and Edison Award. His recordings of works by Othmar Schoeck – the operas Venus and Penthesilea and all the choral works – with the MDR Rundfunkchor and MDR-Sinfonieorchester received wide international recognition, as did the documentary Mein Bruder der Dirigent (My Brother the Conductor), by Alberto Venzago, shown in cinemas across Europe and released on DVD, and his survey of the ten symphonies of Anton Bruckner. Other noteworthy recordings in the discography of Mario Venzago have been devoted to his completion of Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony, with Kammerorchester Basel, and to the serenades and symphonies of Brahms, as well as Othmar Schoeck’s opera Das Schloss Dürande, in a new version with Berner Symphonie-Orchester, and the dramatic cantata Vom Fischer un syner Fru, with Musikkollegium Winterthur.
