Hailed as one of the greatest conductors by world-renowned critics and famous musicians alike,
Piero Gamba celebrates his 70th anniversary of concerts, starting on the season 2016/2017.

On July 15th, 2016 Maestro Gamba conducted the AUDEM Symphony Orchestra in an historical performance:
an extraordinary World Premiere of the correct version of Beethoven's 7th Symphony,
whose Vivace movement had suffered a rhythmic aberration for over two centuries.

The President of Uruguay declared the concert an event of National Interest.
The Mayor of Montevideo — a city twice elected as the Cultural Capital of Latin America — appointed Maestro Gamba as Illustrious Citizen, and
The National Symphony Orchestra conferred him the title of “Conductor Ad Honorem” for life,
therefore increasing his long list of international distinctions.
