As a soloist he has played in some of the most prestigious concert halls in the world, including Gasteig in Munich, Bachzaal in Amsterdam, Paris Conservatory, Rockefeller Center and Guggenheim Museum in New York, Reiss-Engelhorn Museum in Mannheim.

Francesco De Angelis has collaborated with the greatest conductors, including: Daniel Barenboim, Gary Bertini, Semyon Bychkov, Riccardo Chailly, Myung-Whun Chung, Colin Davis, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Charles Dutoit, Riccardo Muti, Georges Pretre, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Georg Solti, Jeffrey Tate.

He is solo violin and Konzertmeister of the Teatro alla Scala and of the Filarmonica della Scala. He has established himself as one of the most talented musicians on the international music scene, highly regarded by critics. His performances are characterized by an unmistakable romantic sound that expresses the cult of bel canto, combined with the rigor of the great Central European instrumental tradition.

Francesco De Angelis began studying the violin at the age of six with Giovanni Leone, heir to the great school of Pablo Sarasate. He then participated at a very young age in one of the most important Italian musical events, the "Review of young violinists" City of Vittorio Veneto, winning the first prize three times in the years 1982, 1984 and 1985.

In the recording field of particular importance are his last two recordings for Decca (London). Accompanied by the Filarmonica della Scala orchestra conducted by Maestro Riccardo Chailly, he recorded the Solo dei Lombardi at the first crusade by G. Verdi and Leggenda by O. Respighi.

Francesco De Angelis teaches violin at the Lausanne Conservatory of Music, Sion site and holds masterclasses in France, China, United States, Brazil, Japan, Italy and Switzerland.

On 7 March 2011 he held a concert at La Scala in Milan in Trio with Alfredo Persichilli on the cello and Lang Lang on the piano: «(…) it's a real trio: melted and identified in style. It finds its signature in the most lyrical impulses, thanks to De Angelis' scorching fare, so linear in Mendelssohn's song, and in Tchaikovsky so granular that it seems at times also a cello », - Corriere della Sera.

He plays a GB Vuillaume-Paris 1864 violin and an A. Poggi-Bologna 1969 violin.
