Laura Marzadori

Laura Marzadori joined the Scala Theatre Orchestra as leader violin in 2014, at just 25 years. Before taking up this position she played only as a soloist and as a chamber music violinist, never in an orchestra. However, the commission members with Daniel Barenboim as its president, unanimously elected her as the Concertmaster. In this role she has already worked with some of the greatest conductors in the world: Barenboim, Chailly, Gatti, Harding and Pappano.

She began studying the violin a few months before her fourth birthday with Fiorenza Rosi, a teacher of the Suzuki method. At age 10 she studied for one year with Professor Enzo Porta, great violinist and pedagogue, before entering the Conservatorio G. B. Martini in Bologna from where she graduates magna cum laude in October 2005.
Laura also studied until the age of 17 with Marco Fornaciari - for many years violin soloist of the Claudio Scimone ensemble “I Solisti Veneti”.
In 2004 she won the "Andrea Amati" National Contest for Young Violinists. The chairman of that jury was the famous violinist Salvatore Accardo who took her on to his prestigious international courses at the Stauffer Academy in Cremona and at the Chigiana Academy in Siena where for two consecutive years she was awarded the Honour’s Diploma granted to the best students.
