Stefano Mengoli

First Violin

Born in Bologna, Italy, Stefano started playing the violin at the age of five. He studied in Ferrara with Marco Fornaciari, before moving to the UK to complete a Masters at the Royal Academy of Music. Here he was awarded a DipRAM and the Sir John Barbirolli Memorial Prize. Whilst at the Academy he founded the Fitzroy Quartet and enjoyed an extensive programme of string quartet activity under the tutelage of Oliver Wille and Krzysztof Chorzelski. The Quartet toured the UK, Europe and Africa and received mentorship from members of the Hagen, Belcea, Casals, Endellion, Kuss and Cherubini Quartets. 

Stefano joined the LSO in 2023, after four years at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
