Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina

About the Event

The Chamber Orchestra of Florence was created in 1981 by conductor and artistic director of the orchestra, Giuseppe Lanzetta.  Consisting of 40 musicians,  the orchestra has performed over 1300 concerts to date. Their repertoire contains both symphonic works and chamber music.  International critics have described the Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina as "one of the best chamber orchestras of Europe". Within just a few years the Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina has succeeded in drawing the attention of audiences in Italy and abroad. One reason for this would be their numerous successful appearances in Italy at classical music's most important institutions. Another reason is the orchestra's touring schedule, which has led the Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina to Brazil, Mexico, the United States, Spain, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, Poland and Germany.

Many renowned soloists have performed with the orchestra, among them Augusto Vismara, Christiane Edinger, Jorge Demus, Eduard Brunner, Andreas Blau, Bruno Canino, Daniele Damiano, Cristiano Rossi, Vincenzo Mariozzi, Umberto Clerici, Andrea Nannoni, Filippo Maria Bressan, the choir of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and the choir Athestis. Since 1985 the Orchestra da Camera Fiorentina has been financed partly by the Italian ministry for Culture and by the Assessorato for urban culture of the province Florence and the region Tuscany. Giuseppe Lanzetta has directed numerous renowned orchestras world‐wide, including the Berliner Symphoniker at the Philharmonie Berlin.
