CarmignolaBorn in Treviso, Giuliano Carmignola studied violin with his father, then with Luigi Ferro and later with Nathan Milstein and Franco Gulli at the Accademia Chigiana and Henryk Szeryng at the Geneva Conservatory. He began his career as a soloist under conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Eliahu Inbal, Peter Maag and Giuseppe Sinopoli, playing in prestigious concert halls. He then worked with Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli, Daniele Gatti, Andrea Marcon, Christopher Hogwood, Trevor Pinnock, Frans Brüggen, Paul McCreesh, Giovanni Antonini and Ottavio Dantone. He played frequently with the Virtuosi of Rome during the ‘70s and later with the Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca, the Venice Baroque Orchestra, the Mozart Orchestra, the Orchestre des Champs Elysées, the Basel Chamber Orchestra, Il Giardino Armonico, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and the Academy of Ancient Music. His recordings have been on labels like Erato, Divox Antiqua, Sony and Deutsche Grammophon, with which he currently has an exclusive contract. His releases have won many important awards such as Diapason d'Or and Choc du Monde. Among recent recordings are Vivaldi’s Concertos for two violins with Viktoria Mullova and the Venice Baroque Orchestra, the complete Mozart concertos with Claudio Abbado and Orchestra Mozart, and Haydn violin concertos with the Orchestre des Champs Elysées. The latest disc, Vivaldi con moto, released in March, offering some of Vivaldi’s less-often heard concertos for violin, has already gained the appreciation of listeners and reviewers.
He has taught at Siena’s Accademia Musicale Chigiana and Lucerne’s Hochschule. He holds the titles of Academician of the Royal Philharmonic Academy of Bologna and Academician of Santa Cecilia.
