A respected Italian maestro has diedmain
Angelo Campori, an associate of Leonard Bernstein who conducted at the Met and the Vienna Opera, has died aged 79. He had been weakened by heart disease for the past decade. Campori’s greatest nights, it is said, were in the Arena di Verona and in Verdi’s home capital, Parma.
Fabio Luisi tweeted the following tribute: Maestro Campori was one of the last Italian conductors who knew exactly what Italian opera means and how to conduct it…supporting the singers, understanding the big picture of an opera, feeling the true intentions of the composers.
