Giuseppe Sinopoli (November 2, 1946 – April 20, 2001) was a conductor and composer. Sinopoli was born in Venice, Italy, and later studied at the Benedetto Marcello Conservatoire in Venice under Ernesto Rubin de Cervin and at Darmstadt, including being mentored in composition with Karlheinz Stockhausen. He also obtained a degree in medicine from the University of Padua, and completed a dissertation on criminal anthropology. Sinopoli began to make a name for himself as a composer of serial works, becoming professor of contemporary and electronic music at the Venice Conservatoire Benedetto Marcello in 1972, and a major proponent of the new movement in Venice for contemporary music. He studied conducting at the Vienna Academy of Music under Hans Swarowsky; and in Venice, founded the Bruno Maderna Ensemble in the 1970s. His single most famous composition is perhaps his opera Lou Salomé, which received its first production in Munich in 1981. Sinopoli was appointed principal conductor of the Philharmonia in 1984, and served in this position until 1994, making a number of recordings with them, including music of Edward Elgar and the complete symphonies of Gustav Mahler.

He became principal conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden in 1992. He also joined the Bayreuth Festival's roster of conductors. He is best known for his intense and sometimes controversial interpretations of opera, especially works by Italian composers and Richard Strauss. Sinopoli specialized in late-nineteenth century and early-twentieth century music, from Wagner and Verdi to Richard Strauss, Mahler and the Second Viennese School.

His conducting was the object of much controversy, especially in the symphonic genre, with some berating the "eccentricity" of his interpretations and even doubting his conducting abilities while others praised the insightfulness of his often intellectual approach to works. In April 2001, Sinopoli died of a heart attack while conducting Giuseppe Verdi's Aïda at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin. His last recordings included Richard Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos and Friedenstag, as well as Dvorak's Stabat Mater.[4] He was survived by his wife Silvia and two sons. Every October since 2005 Taormina Arte has dedicated a festival to Giuseppe Sinopoli, the artistic director of the Music section of the Taormina Festival from 1989 to 1997. The Giuseppe Sinopoli Festival does not only celebrate the man as a musician and as a conductor but also as a composer, a doctor, an archaeologist and intellectual, with a variety of events from music and literature, theatre and art to conferences, exhibitions, publications and, of course, concerts. Every year the Festival welcomes the most important orchestras in the country.

On the occasion of the first edition of the Giuseppe Sinopoli Festival the Sinopoli Chamber Orchestra was formed, in collaboration with the Conservatorio “Arcangelo Corelli” of Messina. The Orchestra, made up of young talented musicians, both pupils and teachers of the Conservatorio, mostly performs works by Giuseppe Sinopoli. Read more on Last.fm.
