Fabio Luisi

Fabio Luisi, principal conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, is the Chairman of the 2018 edition of the Malko Competition and will be mentor to it´s winner.

Luisi is well known for his deep personal engagement in the music; at the same time his musical experience and range are vast – with principal conductor posts with among others the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the Zürich Opera.

Before taking up the post Fabio Luisi had already forged a close relationship with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. But in his new, permanent role as principal conduc­tor, he can challenge the musicians and develop the Orchestra in earnest from this season on.
