Vittorio Monti

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vittorio Monti (6 January 1868 – 20 June 1922) was an Italian composer, violinist, mandolinist and conductor. His most famous work is his Csárdás, written around 1904 and played by almost every gypsy orchestra.

Monti was born in Naples, where he studied violin and composition at the Conservatorio di San Pietro a Majella. Around 1900 he received an assignment as the conductor for the Lamoureux Orchestra in Paris, where he wrote several ballets and operettas, for example, Noël de Pierrot. He also wrote a method for mandolin Petite Méthode pour Mandoline, 98049, in which he included some of his own works, Perle Brillante, Dans Una Gondola, and Au Petit Jour. There were also works by F. Paolo Tosti.[1]

Widely considered to be the greatest recording of Schumann’s 4th symphony ever made, it is quite fortunate then that the original audio was quite good to begin with. I focused on reducing the harsh edge on the violins, trying to make them sound more natural, and giving a more rounded sound to the orchestra. The result is fantastic.

The belgian born conductor Tom Van den Eynde (1980) studied classical guitar, violin, piano, harmony and counterpoint at the Conservatory of Mechelen. When he was fifteen he started taking private conducting lessons with Silveer Van den broeck. 
At the age of eighteen, he went to the Netherlands (Maastricht & Rotterdam) to continue his musical studies : orchestral conducting with Sir Jan Stulen and classical guitar with Cees Dirkx. After three years, he finished his guitar studies as a teaching and performing musician. 

In June 2000, he conducted the Dutch première of Previns « Concerto for guitar and orchestra ». In September 2000, he also assisted his present teacher Jan Stulen in « Le jongleur the Notre-Dame », a church opera of Peter Maxwell Davies which was broadcasted by the Dutch radio and television. 

Tom joined in July 2001 the Wiener Meisterkurse with Sir Salvador Mas Conde. There he was one of the few applicants to conduct the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra (Bulgaria) at the final concert in Vienna. 

One year later, he conducted the Orquestra Sinfónica del Vallès in Barcelona during the International Conducting Course Igualada with maestro Antoni Ros Marba (July 2002). 

In August 2002, Tom made his debut with the Brabant Orchestra (Eindhoven, the Netherlands) conducting the Franck Symphony during the final concert of a masterclass with maestro Marc Soustrot. A year later, he conducted this orchestra for a second time in a Beethoven program. 

Tom also have been conducting the Dutch Promenade Orchestra (Amsterdam) in concert for several times. 

From 1998 till 2003, Tom was serving as assistant-conductor of the Flemish Symphony Orchestra. In November 2003, he finished his conducting studies at the Conservatory of Maastricht by conducting the University Orchestra of Louvain (Belgium) in “Harold in Italy” (Berlioz) and Symphony n°9 “From the New World” (Dvorak). 

In april 2004 he founded the Mechels Chamber Orchestra. It is a semi-professional orchestra of 35 musicians. In a short time, Tom raised this orchestra into a high level. Many international soloists as André De Groote (piano), Luc Tooten (cello), Marc Tooten (viola), Olsi Leka (cello), Jean-Luc Votano (clarinet), etc, have been working together with the orchestra and praised the orchestra for their enthousiasm and precise playing. 

In august 2007 Tom made his first CD recording in Slovak Republic.

For this opportunity, Tom conducted the Slovak State Chamber Orchestra of Zilina.
