After making his début in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Mozart e Salieri in Trieste, the career of the bass Alessandro Svab took him to Florence with Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, Ferrara with Don Giovanni and Pisa with Rossini’s La Cenerentola. He then won the ‘XXV Toti Dal Monte’ with his Conte Rodolfo in Bellini’s La sonnambula in Treviso, Rovigo and Ravenna. Since then he has appeared in major venues, including La Scala in Milan with Spontini’s La vestale and Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia. The first Italian Nick Shadow in the original version of Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress in Turin, he has performed in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi in Lausanne and Le nozze di Figaro at the Theatre des Champs-Elysees. He also sang in Puccini’s Tosca and Verdi’s Alzira and La forza del destino in Parma, and in Verdi’s Rigoletto, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly and Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au bucher in Palermo. Previously at Wexford he was Don Pinto in Weber / Mahler’s Die drei Pintos (Naxos 8.660142–43). Other engagements include Monteverdi’s Il ritorno di Ulisse in patria in Berlin, Verdi’s I vespri siciliani in Palermo, Un ballo in maschera in Catania and Ernani in Parma. Concert performances include Beethoven’s Symphony No 9, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle, Shostakovich’s Symphony No 14, Schubert’s Mass in G major, Puccini’s Messa di Gloria, Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht, Stravinsky’s Pulcinella and Dvořák’s Stabat Mater.
