Biography

Fabio Luisi was born in Genoa. He attended the Conservatorio Nicolò Paganini and was a student of Memi Schiavina. After receiving his degree in piano studies, he continued piano instruction with Aldo Ciccolini and Antonio Bacchelli.

Fabio Luisi developed an interest in conducting while working as a piano accompanist, and he studied conducting at the conservatory in Graz with Milan Horvat. He worked at the Graz Opera as an accompanist and conductor. Fabio Luisi first conducting appearance was in Italy in 1984. From 1990 to 1995, he was principal conductor of the Graz Symphony Orchestra. From 1995 to 2000, he served as Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the Tonkünstlerorchester in Vienna.

From 1996 to 1999, Fabio Luisi was one of three main conductors (Hauptdirigenten) of the MDR Symphony Orchestra (Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester) in Leipzig, along with Marcello Viotti and Manfred Honeck. From 1999 to 2007, he was sole principal conductor of the MDR orchestra. He was the principal conductor of l’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande from 1997 to 2002.

In January 2004, Fabio Luisi was named chief conductor of both the Staatskapelle Dresden and of the Semperoper, Dresden. He assumed both posts in September 2007. With the Staatskapelle Dresden, Luisi conducted commercial recordings of music by Richard Strauss   and Anton Bruckner.  Luisi was originally scheduled to step down as chief conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden in 2012, at the expiration of his contract.

However, Fabio Luisi resigned from both Dresden posts in February 2010, with immediate effect, after reports that the Staatskapelle’s management had secured a contract with the ZDF network for a scheduled televised concert on New Year’s Eve, 2010 with Christian Thielemann as conductor, without consulting him at all in his capacity as the orchestra’s GMD.

Fabio Luisi served as Chief Conductor of the Vienna Symphony from 2005 to 2013 season.   He became Generalmusikdirektor (General Music Director) of the Zurich Opera in 2012, which also includes orchestral concert work with the opera orchestra under the name of the Philharmonia Zurich. He is scheduled to stand down as GMD of Zurich Opera after the close of the 2020–21 season. Fabio Luisi first conducted the Danish National Symphony Orchestra (DR SymfoniOrkestret) in 2010.

In August 2014, the orchestra announced the appointment of Fabio Luisi as its next principal conductor, effective in 2017, with an initial contract through 2020.   In May 2018, the DR SymfoniOrkestret announced the extension of Fabio Luisi’s contract through 2023.  In August 2020, the orchestra announced a further extension of Luisi’s contract with the DR SymfoniOrkestret through 2026.

In January 2016, the Opera di Firenze announced the appointment of Fabio Luisi as its next music director, the first conductor to hold that title with the company, and in parallel, as director of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, as of April 2018, with an initial contract of five years.  In July 2019, Fabio Luisi resigned as music director of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino with immediate effect.

In the United States, Luisi made his Metropolitan Opera conducting debut in March 2005, with Giuseppe Verdi’s Don Carlo.  In April 2010, the company named Luisi as principal guest conductor, for an initial contract of three years, effective with the 2010–11 season. Luisi was the second conductor to hold this title at the Metropolitan Opera, after Valery Gergiev. The company elevated Luisi to the post of Principal Conductor in September 2011, when Music Director James Levine withdrew from his scheduled fall 2011 performances. Luisi stood down as principal conductor of the Metropolitan Opera at the close of the 2016–2017 season.

In 2002, Luisi first guest-conducted the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. His next Dallas guest-conducting appearance was in March 2018. On the basis of this guest-conducting engagement, in June 2018, the Dallas Symphony named Luisi its next music director, effective with the 2020–21 season. He held the title of music director-designate for the 2019–20 season.  In January 2021, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra announced the extension of Luisi’s contract as music director through 2029.

Recordings

Luisi has conducted several opera recordings, including Giuseppe Verdi’s AroldoJérusalem and Alzira,   and Gioacchino Rossini’s William Tell.  He won a Grammy Award for his leadership of Siegfried and Götterdämmerung on a Deutsche Grammophon DVD release of Richard Wagner’s operatic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen.

Personal life

Luisi and his wife Barbara Luisi, a photographer and violinist, have three sons.  Outside of music, his hobbies include perfumery and the production of his own personal line of perfumes.  Luisi tested positive for COVID-19 in late 2020,  and subsequently recovered.
