    Biographical notes   Giorgio Mezzanotte, born in Milano (Italy), completed his musical studies at Conservatorio "G.Verdi". His teachers were Luciano Chailly for the Composition, Alessandro Santinelli for the Piano, Mario Gusella for the Orchestral Conducting. He followed master-classes at the Accademia Chigiana, in Siena, and at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, where he achieved the final high-diploma in Orchestral Conducting under the guide of Franco Ferrara. He was pointed out by one national competition (RAI Torino, 1981) and three international competitions for young conductors ("Premio Gui", Firenze 1982, "Premio Cantelli", Milano 1983 and "Prix Ansermet", Genève 1984). This fact allowed him to begin his work as guest-conductor in many italian and foreign chamber and symphony orchestras where, up till now, he is regularly invited. Moreover Mezzanotte collaborated with some particular projects as "Musica nel Nostro Tempo" (Music in our time), for contemporary music, and another one dedicated to Bach's Cantatas, promoted by Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa.
