Born in Padua, Northern Italy, violinist Giovanni Angeleri studied with Piero Toso and began his concert career at a very tender age. His name appears on the Golden Roll of Winners at numerous international competitions, most notably: “Kreisler” (Vienna), UNISA (South Africa), “Prague Spring”, Vaclav Huml (Zagreb).
His worldwide high reputation on the concert scene came to him however after his victory at the “Paganini” Competition in 1997, perhaps the most important award in its genre, followed by a busy schedule of concerts for prestigious musical institutions and international festivals (including Dubrovnik, Spoleto, Seville, Beloeil).
His concert performances were broadcast by Radio broadcasting companies of Canada, Japan, South Africa, France, United Kingdom and many other European countries.
He played all the major works of the repertoire with various orchestras including the Wiener Symphoniker, as well as many important Italian Orchestras (Rome, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Genoa, Venice, Verona).
He has had the privilege of playing concerts in Italy and abroad with the legendary Guarnerius 1742 "Il Cannone", the violin that once belonged to Paganini, now the proud property of the Genoa City Council.
Giovanni Angeleri runs the master course in Violin and Chamber Music at the Musical Foundation "Masiero e Centanin" and is the conductor of the Orchestra delle Venezie.
He is a recording artist for Velut Luna, King Records and Amadeus.
