Marco Ozbič has developed his wide-ranging professional musical career as a conductor, pianist, composer, teacher and music researcher. Since graduating from Vienna Music University in 1995 he has conquered the international classical music scene: “His knowledge and awareness of a whole range of musical styles and periods as well as specific scores is matched by his sensitivity and communication skills, which makes his performances not simply authentic but vibrantly alive.” (A. Stafford, Royal College of Music – London). His brilliant career started in the mid 90’s when he founded the chamber orchestra “Ensemble Salieri – Wien”. By 1999 he was appointed deputy choir director and artistic director of the Opernsingschule at the Vienna State Opera. “I have appreciated Mr. Marco Ozbič as a straightforward person of
integrity and an ambitious, capable and outstanding conductor, with an impressive repertoire and wide-ranging stylistics – unfolding from classic to contemporary”(I. Holender, former GM of the Vienna State Opera). Ozbič was employed from 2005 as choir director and guest conductor at the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples. Special reference should be made to his performance of Hans Werner Henze’s “Muses Siziliens” in co-operation with the pianists Andrea Lucchesini and Pietro de Maria. “It is one of the most beautiful concerts that I’ve heard in recent times” (P. Isotta, Corriere della sera).
In 2009 he won the “Victor de Sabata” conducting competition at the Teatro Verdi in Trieste and additionally the special prize awarded by the employees’ association. Mikko Frank, former chief conductor and artistic manager at the Finnish National Opera engaged him in 2011 as chorus director and guest conductor. “Marco Ozbič was a masterful creator of images conducting the Orchestra of the National Opera. This was well proven by pieces from Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. The prelude brought to life dancing fairies in the listener’s imagination.” (A. Salmela, Helsingin Sanomat). Ozbič has assisted at major festivals and opera houses (Salzburger Festspiele, Opéra de Monte-Carlo, the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, the Opéra de Lyon. the Opéra du Rhin and the National Centre for Performing Arts in Beijing – China) alongside Muti, Mehta, Harnoncourt, Pappano, Thielemann, Ozawa, Rattle, Gatti, Steinberg, Tate, Viotti, G. Albrecht etc.
He has conducted the orchestras of the Teatro di San Carlo (Naples), the Teatro Verdi (Trieste), the Slovenian State Opera and the Slovenian
Philharmonic Orchestra (Ljubljana) as well as the Finnish National Opera orchestra. Currently he is a visiting professor at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and teaches at numerous courses and masterclasses for singers, instrumentalists and conductors across Europe in UK, Italy, France, Austria, Slovenia and Finland. He is founding co-director of the non-profit association “Il Corpo Cantante” (The Singing Body) in London. He also works as composer and arranger.
