Matthieu Mantanus is a swiss-belgian pianist, conductor, popularizer and composer, former associate conductor to Lorin Maazel.
Alongside his career as a pianist which led to his playing in Sala Verdi in Milan with the Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, he decided to begin a career in conducting. Invited by Lorin Maazel as a fellow in 2009 at the Castleton Festival, he became Maazel's assistant in Italy and in Washington for a production by Bari's Petruzzelli theatre, and finally became his associate conductor in Virginia.
He is since a long time very committed on innovation and making music available to everyone. Leading his Jeans Symphony Orchestra, he presented during 2014-2015 season five short Prime Time talking concerts on Italian TV RAI 3. The year after, he presented the operatic and symphonic season of Italian cultural public channel RAI starting with live Première in la Scala.
As an author, he wrote “Una giornata eroica” (Feltrinelli, 2009), “Beethoven e la ragazza con I capelli blu” (Mondadori 2016) and "Rossini!" (Feltrinelli 2018).
In 2013 he founds the JeansMusic lab production to realize his innovative music shows: Revolution! (2014), Intimacy (2015-2016 season) and BachBox (2018). Together with this last production the JeansMusic records label is born. Naturally curious and creative, with the music of BachBox he takes his first steps into the electronic music world, elaborating a brand new, surprising and very personal musical language to express himself.
