With flawless technique and compelling expressiveness, Giuseppe Gibboni won over the jury and
audience of the Paganini Violin Competition in Genoa in October 2021. The violinist, born in 2001,
was the first Italian in 24 years to win the overall prize, as well as the audience choice prize and
special prize for the best interpretations of Niccolò Paganini's Capriccios and Violin Concerto.
Subsequently, he made his debut with Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with the Orchestra
dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia under the direction of Lorenzo Viotti. Shortly thereafter,
he played with guitarist Carlotta Dalia at the invitation of Italian President Sergio Mattarella at the
Quirinal Palace in Rome; the concert was broadcast live on Italian radio.

The son of a family of musicians, Giuseppe Gibboni was first taught by his father Daniele Gibboni
before attending the Stauffer Academy in Cremona, where he received lessons from Salvatore
Accardo. After a five-year advanced course at the Accademia Perosi in Biella with Pavel Berman,
he studied at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg as a student of Pierre Amoyal.

The highlights of the season 2022/23 include his US debut with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra
under Jader Bignamini as well as the Italian premiere of the Violin Concerto by Wynton Marsalis
together with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI under John Axelrod.

In autumn 2023 Giuseppe Gibboni gave his debut with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra
under Zubin Metha performing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.
