Bio: "Gabriele Bonolis is an excellent conductor: having witnessed his work both with Orchestra del Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and I Solisti Aquilani, I can testify to his capacity in leading an orchestra, animating them, as well as making a careful reading of the score. He also has proven able to creatively transfer scores written for smaller ensembles to bigger ones. I give him my best recommendation." Lasse Thoresen, composer, professor of composition at the Norwegian Academy of Music
