Lorenzo Iosco, Conductor

Lorenzo Antonio Iosco is an Italian clarinetist and conductor based in Hong Kong where he is a member of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.

Before moving to Asia in 2015, he studied the clarinet at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory in Florence from where he graduated with Distinction. He then became a member at Madrid Opera House Teatro Real in Spain for three years and London Symphony Orchestra for seven years, respectively.

Lorenzo studied orchestral conducting with Piero Bellugi in Florence and Donato Renzetti in Rome. Recently he was invited to join the Gstaad Conducting Academy where he had the privilege of working closely with Jaap van Zweden and Johannes Schlaefli, who selected him to conduct in the Academy’s final concert.

Lorenzo is founder and artistic director of Ensemble Ubertini, a chamber orchestra based in Tuscany with international guest musicians. His main interest with the Ensemble is to rediscover some of the most important repertoire of the 20th and 21st centuries. ​

In 2021 Lorenzo made his conducting debut with the HK Phil in a program featuring the Italian composer Nino Rota. For the Italian National Day on 2 June, the General Consul of Italy in Hong Kong invited Lorenzo to conduct a concert at Hong Kong City Hall celebrating music of the best Italian composers of all time.
