Eric Hull is an outstanding conductor with an eclectic operatic and symphonic repertoire
extending from seventeenth century to contemporary music.
He has conducted at some of the most prestigious opera houses, with leading orchestras
and soloists. These include Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Madrid’s Teatro Real, Lisbon’s
Sao Carlo, Rome’s Teatro all’Opera, l’Opéra de Monte-Carlo, Teatro alla Fenice in
Venice, l’Opéra de Lausanne, the Berlin Radio Orchestra, the Russian National Orchestra
of Moscow, the Toronto Symphony, the Concerto Köln and the Orchestre de Chambre de
Lausanne, as well as most of the major institutions of Italy and Spain (including
those of Naples, Verona, Bologna, Genova, Martina Franca, Sassari, Catania, Las Palmas,
Bilbao, Oviedo, Malaga and Galizia.)
Having studied at the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna (at 19, the youngest graduate
in conducting in the history of the Hochschule) as well as in London, Italy, France,
the United States and in his native Canada, he was later assistant for conductors
such as Lutoslawsky, Solti, Muti, Chailly, Maazel, Pretre and A. Davis.
His interest in musicology and performance practice has led him to publish editions
for Ricordi-BMG (Piccinni’s l’Americano) and for institutions such as Teatro alla
Scala (Europa riconosciuta, the opera that inaugurated the theatre in 1778, and again
in 2004 following refurbishment.) He is Artistic Director of l’Isola fortunata, dedicated
to producing quality performances of Early Music on period instruments in historically
significant architectural venues.
His performances have been recorded by Dynamic and Kicco, and transmitted worldwide
in radio and television.
