Danilo Rossi

Danilo Rossi graduated with full distinction in 1985 and then completed and perfected his studies with Dino Asciolla, Piero Farulli and Yuri Bashmet. He was only 20 years old when Riccardo Muti choose him as first viola soloist of both the Theatre and Philharmonic Orchestras of La Scala in Milan (a position he currently still holds), so becoming the youngest ever first violist in the history of this world-famous and prestigious institution.

Winner of ten national and international competitions, including those of Vittorio Veneto, Stresa and Moscow, he was awarded for two years the Honorary Diploma from the Chigiana Academy. Danilo Rossi is regularly invited to perform at major international Festivals, as a soloist with other great musicians (Azzolini, Brandis, Bashmet, Brunello, Canino, Carmignola, Chung, Dindo, Gallois, Gerart, Ghiglia, Lucchesini, Muti, Tortelier), and with eminent formations (Arditti Quartet, Nuovo Quartetto Italiano, Trio Italiano, Vanbrugh Quartet).
