“Showing remarkable attention to detail and refinement of taste this charismatic and gifted young conductor captivated the audience.”
Born in London into a distinguished family of Italian and English musicians, Damian Iorio is a dynamic and gifted conductor, and enjoys an international career. Having begun his professional life as a violinist, following studies at the Royal Northern College of Music and Indiana University, Damian went on to study conducting at St Petersburg State Conservatoire whilst serving as a member of the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Damian has worked with some of the world’s greatest orchestras and opera companies including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia, San Francisco Symphony, Opéra National de Paris…
” ….. the key to yesterday’s success must mostly be attributed to the work of the conductor. Damian Iorio, who has already shown us his value in previous appearances, did a thorough and conscientious job and everything worked perfectly. The security of his leadership gave a necessary calmness to the musicians who had an inspired evening. The synchronisation was outstanding, the result of rehearsals led by someone who knew every detail of the score. The ovation at the end signalled a richly deserved success for the OSCyL.”
