CHAIRMAN OF THE JURY

Born in Palermo in 1967, Riccardo Crocilla commenced his clarinet studies at the Paganini Conservatory in Genoa under G. Laruccia. After graduating cum laude at an early age, he worked with Giuseppe Garbarino and Thomas Friedli. He won first clarinet positions in the symphony and opera orchestras of Cagliari, Genoa, Trieste, Lausanne and, since 1996, has been Principal clarinet of the Maio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra of Florence, under the direction of Zubin Mehta. He has also performed with the Orchestra of Italian Radio and Television (RAI), the Chamber Orchestra of Padua and Veneto, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Parma Opera Ensemble, the Filarmonica della Scala, and the Orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, under the direction of the world’s leading conductors such as:
M.W. Chung, L.Maazel, R. Muti, Z.Mehta, W.Sawallisch, G.Sinopoli, C.Abbado, G.Pretre.

One of the highlights of his career as a soloist was his performance of the Mozart clarinet concerto under the direction of Zubin Mehta at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, as well as the premiere performance of Sofia Gubaidulina piece “Warum?” for Flute, Clarinet and Orchestra. Mr. Crocilla is a holder of the prestigious Premio Galileo 2000 award as the outstanding young Italian performer.
