The great Italian conductor Claudio Abbado blazed a trail around the world – from La Scala Milan to the London Symphony Orchestra, from Chicago to Vienna and Berlin. He was known for his Germanic orchestral repertoire as well as his interest in Rossini and Verdi.
Born in Milan on 26 June 1933, Claudio Abbado was the son of a violinist and composer. His father was his first piano teacher. Young Claudio decided to be a conductor as a child after hearing a performance of Claude Debussy's Nocturnes.
