As a past prize winner in the international opera conducting competition Blue Danube Musik Impresario (Vienna), Anthony’s opera credits include Don Carlo, La traviata, La bohème, Don Giovanni and Madama Butterfly.

During the 2022/2023 season, Anthony will conduct performances of Danny Elfman’s The Nightmare Before Christmas with the Orchestre de Paris, Disney’s Fantasia with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and the World Premiere of Les Choristes – film in concert, with the Yellow Socks Orchestra of Paris.

In March 2023, Anthony will renew his collaboration with Ronan Keating with performances of Ronan Keating – Live at the Symphony,  at the KKL in Lucerne.

Reviews

“…Gabriele is a master of synchronising an orchestra’s live performance to the unforgiving fixed demands of a movie screening and his coaxing the aural beauty of the Philharmonia’s talent, opened up new layers of nuance to this wonderful fable…

…The Philharmonia are of course world-class, and their delivery of William’s score [for E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial] was flawless … This combination of a classic film, projected over the heads of the players and instruments of one of the finest orchestras around and all helmed under Gabriele’s masterful baton, created an evening that that was simply out of this world!”
