The encounter with Valery Gergiev in 2015 marked a turning point in Federico Santi’s professional life.
From that moment he began his permanent collaboration with the Mariinsky Theater and he was introduced to the method of Ilya Musin.
Thanks to a long and in-depth study with Vladimir Korchmar, honoured Artist of the Russian Federation, former student of Musin and senior conducting teacher at St. Petersburg Conservatoire, Federico discovered and gradually deepened the study and the practice of the Musin method, of which he is today a strong supporter.
Recently did he discover the passion for teaching orchestral conducting, in which he leads and becomes the continuer of the complex and relevant Musin method.
