Born in Rome, Gianluigi Gelmetti’s conducting studies were with Franco Ferrara at the Accademia Santa Cecilia, Sergiu Celibidache in Siena and Hans Swarovsky in Vienna. He completed his studies in 1965, upon which he was awarded the City of Firenze Prize.

His appointments have included Chief Conductor of the Rome Symphony (RAI) and Permanent Conductor and Artistic Director of the Rome Opera. He has also been Music Director of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony. His international career was launched with his début with the Berlin Philharmonic, since when he has been a regular guest with many great orchestras and in festivals such as Berlin, Ravenna, Paris, Strasbourg and Bonn. He continues to appear on a regular basis with the Munich Philharmonic.

His US début was with the Chicago Symphony, and he returns in future seasons. In the UK he has enjoyed a particular relationship with the BBC Symphony, including at the Proms.

Recent operatic highlights include Rossini’s ‘Guillaume Tell’ and 'Tancredi' at Pesaro and Mascagni’s ‘Iris’ in Rome; Donizetti’s ‘Lucrezia Borgia’ at La Scala and Rossini’s ‘Semiramide’ in Geneva. He made his Royal Opera début in 1998 with Puccini’s ‘La Rondine’ (with Roberto Alagna and Angela Gheorgiu) and made a highly acclaimed return in 2000 with Rossini’s ‘Otello’. He has just made a further return with 'La Rondine', again with Gheorgiu and Alagna and makes a further return in the autumn for 'Turandot'.

In 1995, after a long period away, Gianluigi Gelmetti began again to compose and his first new work, ‘Algos’ was given in London, Stuttgart, Munich and Sydney. In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the death of Ferrara he wrote ‘In Paradisum Deducant Te Angeli’, performed at the Rome Opera. He currently has commissions for the Süddeutscher Rundfunk, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the Teatro Massimo in Palermo and the Munich Philharmonic.

Gelmetti is an exclusive EMI recording artist; among recent recordings are the complete Ravel orchestral works, ‘Il Barbiere di Siviglia’ (with Thomas Hampson and Jerry Hadley), Berg and Stravinsky Violin Concertos with Frank Peter Zimmerman and the film music of Nino Rota. Other recordings, for SONY and TELDEC, include ‘La Gazza Ladra’, ‘Maometto II’, ‘La Rondine’, ‘La Boheme’, Mozart’s ‘Il Seraglio’ and Salieri’s ‘Danaides’.

In 2001 he was appointed Chief Conductor of the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma and he is currently Music Director of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
