One of the most outstanding and versatile Italian conductors of today, Alessandro Crudele, is a principal guest conductor of the RTS Symphony Orchestra, in the 2018/2019 season. In March 2019, this prominent artist, recognised by world music critics as a sophisticated interpreter of the music of French Impressionism, will hold a concert with the Orchestra of the RTS Music Production, where, among others, one of the most important works of Antonin Dvorak – Seventh Symphony will be performed.
The international career of Alessandro Crudele has progressed very quickly and enabled him to collaborate with prestigious orchestras, such as the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra Sinfonica Arturo Toscanini, the Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música, the Prague Symphony Orchestra, the RTS Symphony Orchestra, the Israel Chamber Orchestra and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.

Among Crudele’s most significant successes during the last season are his debut in the concert hall of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, then in the prestigious “Tonhalle” in Zurich and “Gewandhaus” in Leipzig, as well as his very successful debut in Japan, with the Orchestra Ensemble “Kanazawa”.
He made his highly acclaimed Opera debut with Rossini’s “Il Signor Bruschino”.
