Roberto Paternostro was born in Vienna where he studied at the Music University under Hans Swarowsky. Further studies under György Ligeti and Christoph von Dohnányi in Hamburg. 1978 to 1984 he was assistant of Herbert von Karajan in Berlin. Season’s 2010/11 tours of the Israel Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Roberto Paternostro included venues in Austria (Haydnfestival Eisenstadt, Brucknerfest Linz, CD recording in Vienna), Germany (Liederhalle Stuttgart, Philharmonie Köln) as well as in July 2011 Bayreuth and Italy – with the orchestra’s first performance of a work by Richard Wagner.
The Israel Chamber Orchestra plans to play music by Richard Wagner, the composer revered by Hitler, during the annual Wagner Festival in Bayreuth next year. The move is controversial in Israel, where the composer's work has been shunned for decades. But the Jewish Austrian conductor Roberto Paternostro, the musical director of the Israel Chamber Orchestra, is breaking new ground with a plan to perform Wagner's Siegfried Idyll along with works by the Jewish composers Gustav Mahler and Felix Mendelssohn and a contemporary Israeli composer next year in a public hall in Bayreuth on July 26, 2011, one day after the annual Wagner. opera festival opens there. I realize that parts of Richard Wagner's weltanschauung and Bayreuth's relationship to the Nazi regime can neither be justified nor whitewashed," Paternostro said.

There wasn’t a moment when I had any doubts about this project. It was my greatest conviction to bring together these two sides - Israel and Wagner, said Paternostro, who is Jewish and whose mother and other relatives were Holocaust survivors. For me it wasn’t much of a problem. Attempts over the years by some musicians in Israel to perform Wagner’s music have caused audience members to walk out in protest and have triggered heated public debate. Wagner is also taboo on state-owned media in Israel which largely keep his work off the air. Time to confront wagner.

The Israel Chamber Orchestra plans to play a concert next summer in Bayreuth, Germany, the city most associated with Richard Wagner, whose music is taboo in the Jewish state because of its embrace by Hitler and because of the composer’s noted anti-Semitism. News reports said the orchestra would open the Bayreuth Festival, the annual celebration of Wagner’s operas in the Festspielhaus, the house he designed.
