CONCERTO DE' CAVALIERI
MARCELLO DI LISA, CONDUCTOR
Hailed as 'one of Italy's most vibrant and exciting groups dedicated to period-instrument performance of 18th century music' (Fanfare Magazine), Concerto de' Cavalieri was founded by Marcello Di Lisa at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa.
The orchestra performs at some of the most prestigious international venues such as Musikverein in Vienna, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, Centro Cultural de Belém in Lisbon, Festival d'Ambronay among others, collaborating with soloists, such as Daniela Barcellona, Vivica Genaux, Ann Hallenberg, Kristina Hammarström, Maurice Steger.
Intensely involved in the rediscovery of forgotten works, Concerto de' Cavalieri premiered Alessandro Scarlatti's Serenata Erminia, Nicola Porpora's Serenata La Iole and the Vivaldi Opera Tito Manlio (1720 Rome version). Concerto de' Cavalieri also enjoys a busy recording activity for Sony.
