    Scimone, Claudio (23rd December 1934-Present)

    He is an orchestral conductor and musicologist born in Padua, Italy and he studied conducting with conductors that included Franco Ferrara and Dmitri Mitropoulos.  He has conducted operas in Covent Garden, Houston Grand Opera and Roma State Opera, amongst many others, as well as appearing with major international orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra, The English Chamber Orchestra, the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra and the Prague Chamber Orchestra.  He founded I Solisti Veneti in 1959 and the orchestra has received great international acclaim under his leadership with their revival of many works of Baroque and Renaissance composers.  He has made over 150 recordings and been the recipient of the Grand Prix du Disques and the Gold Medal of the President of the Italian Republic among his many other awards.  After he had been the Principal Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra in Lisbon, Portugal, from 1979 to 1986, he now holds the post of honorary conductor with them.  As a musicologist he has revised Giuseppe Tartinis Violin Concertos and Sonatas and has also revised Antonio Vivaldi's Orlando Furioso which he premiered in 1977.
