In addition to his role as a music conductor, Marco is responsible for the LaFil Milan Philharmonic and Trieste Concert Society’s artistic direction. His work is characterized by his innovative approach to music and his commitment to bringing music to the community. He is a passionate advocate for the power of music to transform lives and create a more vibrant and inclusive world. He is a performer of a vast repertoire, with a predilection for early nineteenth century and early twentieth century music.
To Marco, making music is a total experience which is not limited to stage performances, but manifests itself through a multidisciplinary approach.
Among his recent commitments is a tour across Europe, including concert halls
such as Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, Hamburg’s Musikhalle, Stuttgart’s Liederhalle, Bremen’s Die Glocke, the Royal Danish Opera Hall in Copenhagen, and Zurig’s Tonhalle Maag. In the United States, he took part in the Festival Spoleto US in Charleston and in Italy he participated to the reopening of of Milan theatre Lirico Giorgio Gaber and in Parma he conducted the Peer Gynt of Ibsen with Grieg music, staged by Daniele Abbado.
At Milan’s Teatro Lirico Giorgio Gaber reopening, he arranged the performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s complete symphonies and most celebrated concerts with soloists as Daniel Lozakovich and Pietro de Maria. At the same time, he planned a series of chamber music concerts at the Museo Bagatti Valsecchi, dedicated to the composer’s sister, Fanny, also a composer.
Marco’s most recent role as LaFil’s artistic director also involved a collaboration with Milan’s Museo delle Culture (MUDEC) and the 24Ore cultural group.
Every night, for a week, all the museum’s activities were turned into musical events, with programmes and workshops inspired by an ongoing exhibition on Surrealism. A constant flow of art and classical music references, with shows, performances both inside the exhibition space and out, open rehearsals, panels and interactive workshops. An immersive, totalizing artistic experience and unique cultural project, reinventing the concept of a city’s musical fruition.
While residing in Trieste, the LaFil Milan Philharmonic created a project dedicated to Beethoven, playing symphonies n°5, 7 and 8 in addition to several Ouvertures and solo concerts with Carmela Remigio, Alexander Lonquich and Alessandro Taverna, with a focus on musical pages inspired by dance. On the same days, musicians played in the palaces, city gardens, and parks, performing chamber music pieces written for similar contexts.
