Biography
Composer, conductor and violinist Lorenzo Donati studied at the Liceo Musicale of Arezzo, and at the Conservatory "Luigi Cherubini" in Florence, following advanced courses in Composition at the Scuola di Musica in Fiesole, and at the Accademia Chigiana of Siena. In a course organised by the Guido d'Arezzo Foundation and with support from the European Community he successfully gained his diploma after three years of professional training as a conductor. He pursues his concert interests as director of the Insieme Vocale Vox Cordis, Arezzo; he is also director and singer with the Hesperimenta Vocal Ensemble. He has achieved excellent results with these groups in national and international competitions.

Much appreciated as a composer of vocal music, his works have been performed in a number of European countries, recorded by ensembles and soloists, and published by various prestigious Italian publishers (Carrara, Erreffe, Pizzicato, Edizioni Musicali Europee). His compositions have been studied in a number of contemporary choral music courses, and his Pater Noster for three choirs was performed at EXPO 2000 at Hanover.

Of notable acclaim in international competitions Donati has received prizes at “Guido d’Arezzo” (Arezzo 1996 and 1999), “C.A. Seghizzi” (Gorizia 1999 and 2002), “ROMA 2000” (Rome 1999), “Carlo Gesualdo” (Avellino 2003), "Città della Vitoria" (Vitorio Veneto 2005).

He collaborates with a number of international cultural institutions, such as the Associazione Cori della Toscana, the Fondazione Guido D’Arezzo, the FENIARCO (Federazione Nazionale Italiana Associazioni Regionali Cori), and is invited to hold seminars as an expert in vocal music. He has taught at the conservatories in Pesaro, Florence and Trento and collaborates in musical activities with la Scuola Maria SS. Consolatrice in Arezzo.
