Dante Anzolini

Conductor

Dante Anzolini’s international conducting career includes extensive experience conducting throughout Europe and the United States, including engagements with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra since 2008. Anzolini was born in Berisso, Argentina, of Italian and Chilean parents. Apart from piano and composing, he studied conducting first in Argentina, later at the Yale University School of Music. In addition to his work as a conductor, Dante Anzolini also appears as a composer and arranger of orchestral pieces. His arrangement of Arnold Schoenberg’s Variations for Orchestra (op.31) for Solo Piano, published by Belmont and distributed worldwide by Universal Edition, is the first ever written piano version of the monumental orchestral piece. Mr. Anzolini has worked extensively with composer Philip Glass on several projects including the world premiere of his opera The White Raven at the World Expo ’98 in Lisbon, Portugal.
