Francesco Cilluffo

Francesco Cilluffo


Francesco Cilluffo studied at Turin Conservatory of Music, then with Gianluigi Gelmetti at the Accademia Chigiana of Siena and Kings College, London.

Among his most recent appearances: a concert with the Lebanese National Symphony Orchestra (music by Cherubini, Rossini, Verdi, Puccini and Mascagni) organized by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura; a symphonic concert for MITO Settembre Musica Festival 2007 with the Ensemble Europeo Antidogma; a Verdi Gala at the Scottish Opera, Glasgow, and several concerts and productions for institutions like the London City Festival, Saddler’s Wells, London Contemporary Dance School and Guildhall School of Music and Drama (Barbican) in London. He is also a regular guest conductor of the CRT Symphony Orchestra in Italy.

Francesco Cilluffo is principal guest conductor of the Stefano Tempia Academy in Turin: after having conducted a successful peformance of Cherubini’s Requiem in c minor, he was invited to conduct a concert with Handel’s “Fireworks Music” and “Dettingen Te Deum”.

His future engagements include his debut with the Turin Philharmonic Orchestra, conducting Mozart’s “Requiem (Levin edition)”.

He was awarded a PhD in composition at King’s College, London, under the supervision of Robert Keeley and George Benjamin. Over the last years, his works have been performed by the RAI National Symphony Orchestra, the Electra Ensemble in Amsterdam, the Graz University of the Arts and the London Song Festival. The Dicapo Opera Theatre has commissioned him a new opera (“Il Caso Mortara”), which opened in New York on February 2010 to rave reviews.
