Livio Russi

My education: Bachelor: Milan Rericha, Lugano. Masters –  Romain Guyot, Geneva. Orchestra Academy: Robert Pickup / Rita Meier, Zurich Opera House

My favorite musical composition: Schubert Octet.

My greatest musical experience: In the orchestra – Verbier Festival Orchestra. As a soloist –  Playing Mozart’s clarinet concerto on an (original) basset clarinet with the orchestra in my hometown where I knew almost everyone in the audience.
As teacher – Hearing my students play a beautiful concert with the same youth orchestra I had my first experiences in classical music.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: Playing Lasertag with my dear Kapel colleagues and seeing how they turned into real and very scary fighters.

When I’m not playing in the Kapel: I love sports of any kind, especially skiing and playing Badminton. And I love food!
