Nicolò Foron joins Interartists AmsterdamSeptember 17th 2019
We are proud to announce conductor German-Italian Nicolò Foron (21) has joined Interartists Amsterdam for general management.
Despite his young age we know Nicolò for many years now. We have followed his development closely and are happy to do the next step and start an official cooperation. Nicolò is a very energetic, thoroughly prepared, highly knowledgeable, and friendly personality. We're convinced Nicolò has a bright future ahead.
Nicolò was born in 1998 in Genova, Italy. From early age, Nicolò was supported and developed by renowned artists and teachers. His first education was in piano, with 9 years of age he became a student of Karl-Heinz Kämmerling at the University of Music Hannover, with 14 years he became a student of Anatol Ugorski at the University of Music Detmold and finally he was taught by David Kuijken at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
Besides piano, Nicolò was supported from early age in conducting. He had the great luck to be discovered by Jorma Panula and with only 11 years, he became his student. The intensive coaching shaped Nicolò greatly. Besides the lessons in Finland Panula invited him from an early age to work with professional orchestras and do concerts with them. Within these masterclasses, Nicolò could not only develop his conducting but also build up a broad symphonic repertoire. During the 2013-2014 season he was also a student of Leonid Grin at the Järvi Academy, Estonia.
These experiences paved the ground for his further conducting studies. From 2014 Nicolò studied Bachelor of conducting at the renowned Nationale Master Orkestdirectie at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, taking his final exam in January 2019. From September 2019 Nicolò will continue his studies as a master student in London at the Royal College of Music.
During his stay in the Netherlands, Nicolò had the opportunity to deepen his knowledge of modern music. Of great value to him was on the one hand the composition lessons, among others with Joël Bons, but also the close cooperation with many contemporary composers. He also organized his own concerts and opera productions. Nicolò conducted the world premiere of the short opera Verbena by Boris Bezemer at the National Opera in Amsterdam. The premiere of Kamisama by Frieda Joanna at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam followed in 2018, as well as the world premiere of the opera production Totem by David Ko at the Academy of Theater and Dance in Amsterdam. In the same year Nicolò conducted the world premiere of the Dutch opera Niet de Klucht van de Koe by Brechtje van Dijk.
Nicolò has worked with important conductors. With 17 years he was invited by Bernhard Haitink to his masterclass at the Luzern Festival. In 2017 and 2018 Nicolò took part in a masterclass of Daniele Gatti in Amsterdam. He has worked together multiple times with Marc Albrecht in symphonic and also Opera repertoire with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra.
In February 2019 Nicolò was selected to be part of the Peter Eötvös Academy for conducting and worked together with Heinz Holliger and Peter Eötvös.
The exchange with these renowned composers was very important to him.
In July 2019 he was selected by Riccardo Muti as a conductor of the Italian Opera Academy in Ravenna, he cooperated with Riccardo Muti in the rehearsals for Le nozze di Figaro and conducted also at the final concert.
Nicolò has assisted many important conductors like Lorin Maazel, Herbert Blomstedt, Neeme Järvi, Paavo Järvi, Christoph Eschenbach, Thomas Hengelbrock, Jun Märkl, David Robertson, Vladimir Ashkenazy, and Jonathan Nott.
Nicolò often performs as a concert pianist with his younger sister Mira Marie Foron, Violin.
In the Netherlands, he is supported by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds/Prince Bernhard Culture Fund.
