New Album Coming Out Soon!
Gian Paolo Peloso is regarded as one of the most accomplished Italian violinists. He has studied with some of the finest pedagogues of the 20th century, including the legendary Ruggiero Ricci, Ivry Gitlis, Igor Ozim, Viktor Pikaisen, and Pierre Amoyal. The venerated Ivry Gitlis defines Peloso “a violinist and friend, whom I respect and love in both ways: a true musician, of the highest quality as a soloist and chamber music performer, and a top class violin teacher, whose practice honors our profession and its future.”
Peloso made his debut at the age of ten under the direction of composer Luciano Berio. He has performed internationally in Europe, Asia and the US as a soloist with orchestras, in recitals, and in chamber music concerts; throughout his career, he has been invited to participate in the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland, the Martha Argerich Festival in Switzerland, and has made appearances at the Società dei Concerti Foundation of Milan, the Moscow International House of Music, the Singapore Sun Festival, the Archipel Festival in Geneva, the Hong Kong Musicus Fest, the Cannes Festival in France, and the Weill Recital Hall in New York.
He has toured extensively with the Camerata de Lausanne and performed chamber music with Sofia Gubaidulina, Mark Lubotsky, Vladimir Mendelssohn, and Bruno Canino. Appointed Violin Professor at the Conservatory of Music of Neuchatel in Switzerland, he has recorded sonatas by Saint-Saens and Poulenc for the National Swiss Radio.
Peloso is a Sony Classical artist, and he is presently on faculty at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. He plays a prestigious Landolfi violin of 1755.
