Since the first performance (1981) in the beautiful Bibiena Theatre – the ideal place for chamber music – Mantua Chamber Orchestra has been showing its qualifying features: technical brilliance, the constant search for sound quality and great attention to stylistic matters.
In 1997, Mantua Chamber Orchestra was awarded the “Franco Abbiati” prize by Italian musical critics for its particular stylistic refinement and constant search for sound quality, which can effectively merge Italian instrumental tradition and classical repertoire.
Mantua Chamber Orchestra has been performing for over 30 years with world renowned conductors and soloists (Gidon Kremer, Steven Isserlis, Maria Joāo Pires, Shlomo Mintz, Joshua Bell, Salvatore Accardo, Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli, Giuliano Carmignola, Uto Ughi, Mischa Maisky, Enrico Dindo, Mario Brunello, Miklos Perenyi, Sol Gabetta, Alexander Lonquich, Bruno Canino, Katia and Marielle Labeque, Maria Tipo, Andrea Lucchesini, the unforgettable Astor Piazzolla, Severino Gazzelloni and Aldo Ciccolini) and has given several concerts both in Italy and abroad.
Since 1993, in order to make people appreciate classical music, Mantua Chamber Orchestra has been holding in Mantua a very successful yearly season, “Tempo d’Orchestra”, with the contribution of famous Italian and foreign soloists, chamber groups and orchestras. Moreover, since 2013 it has been producing the “Mantova Chamber Music Festival”, an international meeting held in the Palazzo Ducale and in the most beautiful historical places in Mantova.
