Lorenzo Gatto
Belgium, °1986
VIOLIN 2009 : Second Prize
After graduating from the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles at the age of 17, Lorenzo Gatto went on to study under Augustin Dumay at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and under Boris Kuschnir at the Vienna Conservatoire. His hard work and determination were rewarded when he won both the Second Prize and the Audience Award at the 2009 Queen Elisabeth Competition. His nomination as a ‘Rising Star’ in 2010 enabled him to make his recital debuts on Europe’s leading stages. In chamber music, he has shared the stage with Maria João Pires, Menahem Pressler, Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden and Frank Braley, among others. His numerous recordings have won several awards, including a Diapason d’Or for his recording of the complete Beethoven sonatas with pianist Julien Libeer. Since 2018, Lorenzo Gatto has been a guest professor at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel. A committed and curious musician, he created his own string ensemble, Karavan Vivaldi, with which he revisits pieces by composers from the repertoire and stages his own compositions to breathe new life into classical music.
