Explore classical music, its restorative qualities and cultural influences in Sir Antonio Pappano: My Life in Music Book by the celebrated Music Director of the Royal Opera House. 

Sir Antonio Pappano is one of the best known and most celebrated conductors alive today. His deeply held belief in the power of music to inspire and enlighten is the motivation behind this long anticipated memoir.

In 1969, decades before he was chosen to conduct the music at the Coronation of King Charles, Sir Antonio Pappano was a ten-year-old boy accompanying his father’s singing lessons. My Life in Music tells the moving tale of a legendary conductor who, nurtured in childhood by his parents and their dedicated work ethic, goes on to conduct at many of the most influential opera houses of Europe and North America. Pappano skillfully evokes an extensive selection from his wide-ranging repertoire – operas and orchestral works spanning from Mozart to Birtwistle and Mark Anthony Turnage, as well as art song and chamber music works in which he has performed as a pianist – and makes a compelling case for the potential classical music has to captivate new and wider audiences.

My Life in Music

Sir Antonio Pappano's book as Danial Barenboim states is mesmerising. Full of interesting facts and showing the very human side of Tony Poppano who is very complimentary about every artist, orchestra, working colleagues and organisations he has been associated with over many years.
He clearly has enjoyed his life in music and has spread much joy and enjoyment to others watching and listening to him.
Wishing him many more years of enjoyment and connection to the music world.
