Uto Ughi is one of the most famous violinists in the world, he appeared with the most important orchestras, such as the London Philharmonic, the London Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, just to name a few.
He is also famous for his committment in promoting music culture and in preserving Italy’s artistic heritage.
He founded the Omaggio a Venezia music festival to help raise fund for the restoration of buildings and monuments in Venice, and later he founded the Omaggio a Roma festival, whose aim was to promote international music heritage and young talents from Italian Conservatories of Music.
Nowadays he is the Artistic Director of Uto Ughi per Roma, another festival he founded to promote classical music by allowing people to attend live concerts for free.
Despite his long carreer (he had his debut at the Teatro Lirico in Milan when he was 7 and was told to be a mature musician at 12) his discography is relatively short - 20 recordings or so - because the Maestro notoriously prefers to play live and to bring music to the people. To this end, he also conducted a show on Italian State Television’s main channel, in which every night he explained the audience a particular topic concerning classical music (“Uto Ughi racconta la musica”, 2008).
