Viola da gamba player, conductor, composer, Head of the Institut für Alte Musik and Professor at Mozarteum Salzburg and Visiting Professor at Royal College (London). Compared by the critics to Jasha Heifetz (“Diapason”) for his virtuosity he attracted notice for his new approach to the viol and to the sound of the baroque repertoire. He appears as soloist or conductor with the most famous orchestras. As one of the leaders of the ancient music scene, he shared the stage with musicians as Gustav Leonhardt (duo), C. Bartoli, Reinhard Goebel, or with Andràs Schiff, T. Quasthoff, V. Mullova. He has been assistant of Riccardo Muti. His ensemble Il Suonar Parlante Orchestra,  regularly invited in the most important venues, is devoted to a new investigation of the ancient music repertoire as well as to the creation of new projects and performed with important jazz players (K.Wheeler, Uri Caine, P.Fresu, M.Stockhausen...) or the jazz star Carmen Linares. Vittorio recorded countless cds as soloist winning many critic prizes. In summer 2018 he conducted Pygmalion by Rameau in the Drottningholms Slottsteater (Stockholm) with the regie of Saburo Teshigawara. His fieldwork within old musical surviving traditions led to him being presented the “Erwin Bodky Award” (Cambridge, Massachusetts USA 1997), and the prestigious Echo Klassic Award 2015 (Germany). The collaboration with traditional players is documented in the film “The Heart of Sound - a musical journey with Vittorio Ghielmi”, BFMI (Salzburg-Hollywood). More at
