Founder and conductor Rinaldo Alessandrini’s early music ensemble, Concerto Italiano, came into existence in 1984. Its birth coincides with that of the revival of early music in Italy and is, in no small part, responsible for it. Monteverdi, Bach, and Vivaldi are the main composers who have inspired the group in honouring an appreciation of the language of Baroque music, making a new aesthetic and musical rhetoric available to a fresh audience. After several decades, the recordings of Concerto Italiano are still considered by critics and public alike to be the definitive standards of the Baroque revival and style.
