Sassofonista e direttore d’orchestra, Federico Mondelci è uno dei maggiori e più apprezzati interpreti del panorama musicale internazionale. Graduated in saxophone at the Conservatory of Pesaro, he also studied singing, composition and direction, perfecting himself at the Superior Conservatory of Bordeaux under the guidance of Jean-Marie Londeix and obtaining a diploma with “gold medal” unanimously. Federico Mondelci performs with the most important orchestras in the world such as the La Scala Philharmonic with Seiji Ozawa, The Moscow Soloists with Yuri Bashmet, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and the BBC Philharmonic. He has also collaborated with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra and the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra.
His repertoire, extensive and varied, includes both works of the classical tradition, as well as music of the twentieth century and contemporary works (by authors such as Nono, Kancheli, Glass, Donatoni, Sciarrino, Scelsi, Gentilucci, Fitkin, Piovani and Nyman; some of them have composed expressly for him). As a conductor he was in turn joined by famous soloists such as Ilya Grubert, Kathryn Stott, Pavel Vernikov, Nelson Goerner, Francesco Manara, Natalia Gutman and Luisa Castellani. Federico Mondelci’s performances, both orchestral and chamber music, are engraved on Delos and Chandos labels.
In 1982 he founded the Italian Saxophone Quartet and in 1995 the Italian Saxophone Orchestra. Since then he has performed with both of these popular bands both in Italy and abroad.
To mark the bicentenary of the birth of Adolphe Sax, inventor of the saxophone, he received an invitation from the St. Petersburg Philharmonic to perform as conductor and soloist in a gala concert held on June 26, 2014, as part of the prestigious season directed by Yuri Temirkanov. He will be back at the St. Petersburg Philharmonic in April 2020.
In 2017 Federico Mondelci was awarded the title of “Marchigian of the Year”.
