BIOGRAPHY

Discovered by Nadia Boulanger, with whom he studied for several years, Oleg Caetani attended conducting classes with Franco Ferrara and composition classes with Irma Ravinale at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia in Rome. After studying conducting with Kirill Kondrashin at the Moscow Conservatory he went to St Petersburg where he graduated under Ilya Musin, later winning the RAI Turin and Karajan competitions. He has developed a particularly close relationship with the Giuseppe Verdi Orchestra in Milan and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

In 2001 he made his Australian debut with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, taking up the post as the Orchestra’s Chief Conductor and Artistic Director in January 2005. In 2001 he also made his debut at Teatro alla Scala, Milan with Turandot and opened the season of the Theatre of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino with Don Pasquale. In 2005 he returned to La Scala to conduct Otello. Recently, besides many orchestral concerts, he has conducted, among others, Der fliegende Holländer in Rome, La fanciulla del west in Seattle and Melbourne, L’amore dei tre re by Montemezzi in Turin, Œdipe by Enescu at the George Enescu Festival, and Salome at the Tenerife Opera.
