Antonino Votto (Conductor)

Born: 30th October 1896, Piacenza, Italy

Died: 9th September 1985, Milan, Italy

Nationality: Italian

Antonino Votto was an Italian operatic conductor and vocal coach. Votto developed an extensive discography with the Teatro alla Scala in Milan during the 1950s, when EMI produced the bulk of its studio recordings featuring Maria Callas. Though Votto was a dependable conductor (and the teacher of Riccardo Muti), critics frequently faulted his recordings for their lack of emotional immediacy. This may have been an occupational hazard of working in the studio, as his live sets with Callas, including a Norma (December 1955, La Scala) and La sonnambula (1957, Cologne) are considered to be great performances. Among his pupils was soprano Claudia Pinza Bozzolla.
