ENRICO LAVARINI


Swiss composer and conductor Enrico Lavarini, whose family has roots in Verona, was born in Switzerland in 1948. He founded his symphony orchestra, Concentus rivensis, in 1974. As well as giving his compositions their inaugural performances, his orchestra has a broad symphonic repertoire ranging from W. A. Mozart to Sofia Gubajdulina.

He has composed operas, stage productions, symphonies, works for soloists, choir and orchestra, chamber music, film music and surprisingly sophisticated folk music.
Lavarini’s vocal compositions are based on texts from various eras and cultures from Europe and South America.
