SERGIO RENDINE  

(b 1954 )

Sergio Rendine was born in Naples in 1954 and graduated in composition under Domenico Guccero at the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome and in choral music and conducting with Giuseppe Agostini at the Rossini Conservatory in Pesaro. He is considered among the more important composers of our time, with commissions from leading musical institutions, including the Radio Orchestras of Stuttgart, Hamburg, and Cologne, the Salzburg Festival, the BBC, the orchestra of La Scala, the operas of Monte Carlo and Frankfurt, the Strasbourg Festival and the Festival of Two Worlds at Spoleto, the Teatro dellOpera in Rome, the Teatro Massimo of Palermo, the Verona Arena, the Moscow Bolshoy, the Prague National Symphony Orchestra, the 2000 Grand Jubilee Committee, and many others. With his opera Alice, commissioned by RAI, he won the Barcelona Hondas Prize and the special critics prize of the Prix Italia. He was chosen by the Presidency of the Nobel Prize for Peace to compose, together with Matsudaira, Menotti, Penderecki and Schnittke, the World Mass for Peace, performed in Oslo on the occasion of the award. His Missa de beatificatione in onore di Padre Pio da Pietralcina, performed in the Sala Nervi at the Vatican, was commissioned as the official Mass for the beatification. His Passio et Resurrectio for soloists, choir and orchestra was written for Good Friday in the Jubilee Year of 2000. He serves as administrative adviser to the Orchestra of the S. Cecilia Accademia Nazionale, commissioner of the SIAE for the opera section, and artistic director of the Teatro Marrucino of Chieti, the Lyric Theatre of the Abruzzi. His compositions are published by G. Ricordi & Co., Milan, Edipan in Rome, and now exclusively with Bideri & Warner Italy.
