Giuseppe Sinopoli (1946 - 2001) was an Italian conductor and composer. He obtained a degree in medicine from the University of Padua. He completed a dissertation on criminal anthropology.
Sinopoli studied at the Benedetto Marcello Conservatoire and later at Darmstadt, including being mentored in composition with Karlheinz Stockhausen. He began to make a name for himself as a composer of serial works, becoming professor of contemporary and electronic music at the Venice Conservatoire in 1972. He studied conducting with Hans Swarowsky, and founded the Bruno Maderna Ensemble in the 1970's.
Sinopoli was appointed principal conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra in 1984, and served in this position until 1994. He became chief conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden in 1992. He is best known for his intense and sometimes controversial interpretations of opera, especially works by Italian composers and Richard Strauss.
On 20 April 2001, Sinopoli died of a heart attack while conducting Giuseppe Verdi's Aida at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin
