Mancusi, Guido

Guido has been in contact with the orchestra since 2010 and has been a regular on the conductor’s podium. Our cooperation was made official in 2018: he was contracted for the newly created position of First Guest Conductor to BDO.

Apart from BDO, he is the leader of Wiener Volksoper’s orchestra, Guest Conductor of Wiener Symphoniker and Leading Conductor of Orchester Wien. Besides all this, he also engages in music composition.

He doesn’t have a favourite composer but believes that there is only good music and bad music. His favourite pieces are Strauss: The Rosenkavalier, Alban Berg: Wozzeck, Wagner: Tristan und Isolde.

He is married and has one daughter.

“I like working here because with these insanely good musicians you can do anything. They are courageous and they dare to take risks. And this is what art needs in order to be true.

On occasion of the 2018 anniversary: here is to another 25 years and much joy in making music!”
