Profile:

Bruno Maderna (born April 21, 1920, Venice, Italy - died November 13, 1973, Darmstadt, Germany) was an Italian composer and conductor.

Bruno Maderna played an important role in the early postwar development of Italian music both as a teacher and conductor. He presided over the early careers of Luigi Nono, Luciano Berio, Franco Donatoni, Aldo Clementi and others. In his conducting career he specialized in the performance of new music which led him to regard West Germany as his second country and eventually he settled in Darmstadt, which he first visited in 1951. He taught conducting, composition and analysis at a number of educational facilities, including: the Darmstadt International Summer Courses for New Music, Darmstadt, Germany; Milan Conservatory, Italy; Mozarteum, Salzburg, Austria; and Dartington International Summer School, Devon, England. From 1961 to 1966, Maderna and Pierre Boulez were the main directors of the Internationales Kranichsteiner Kammer-Ensemble in Darmstadt. In 1972 he won an Italian Prize and in 1974 he was posthumously awarded the Beethoven Prize from the city of Bonn.
