About

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of his ensemble Concerto Italiano, Rinaldo Alessandrini has chosen some of the greatest moments from their rich discography.

Over the past few years, Concerto Italiano has revolutionised the criteria for performance of early music, from madrigals - those of Monteverdi in particular - to the orchestral and operatic repertory of the 18th century. Its recordings are regarded as benchmarks by critics and audiences, testifying to the renewal of interest in repertoire revisited by a Mediterranean sensibility.

Among its various projects, the group is involved in the trilogy of Monteverdi operas at La Scala in Milan, which began in 2009 with 'L’Orfeo' and will end in 2016 at the Opéra Garnier in Paris.

Concerto Italiano records exclusively for Naïve. In recent years it has received an impressive array of awards and distinctions from the record critics, notably four Gramophone Awards (in 1994, 1998, 2002, and 2004: the only Italian ensemble in the 1998 nominations, with three titles, and Best Recording, ‘Baroque Instrumental’, 2004).
