Stefano Montanari
Opera di Firenze

Stefano Montanari to lead two exciting baroque programs
with the Orchestra of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence

Stefano Montanari

Stefano Montanari - conductor


One of the most outstanding baroque violinists of his generation, Stefano Montanari is now much in demand as a conductor both with modern and period orchestras. Stefano Montanari was nominated for a Grammy Award for his recording of Purcell’s O Solitude with Andreas Scholl for Decca. His recording of Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas has just been published for the Italian music magazine Amadeus. He recently wrote a Baroque Violin method, published by Carisch. He is regularly present in the seasons of Teatro La Fenice both in opera and in concert. He just made his theatre debut at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow conducting Così Fan Tutte. In Venice, where he regularly appears both in opera and concert, he recently conducted Cavalli’s Eritrea (first performance in modern times) and L’Inganno Felice. He also made his debut with the Rome Opera conducting Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Baths of Caracalla. Always active as a virtuoso violinist, Stefano Montanari has just played the whole series of Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas at the Opéra de Lyon. After a successful concert with the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, he has been reinvited to conduct Bach's B minor mass.

Future plans: several new projects at the Opéra de Lyon, where he is regularly reinvited; a new production of Il Viaggio a Reims at the Nederlandse Opera in Amsterdam (company debut); a revival of Così fan tutte at the Bolshoi in Moscow; Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Teatro Filarmonico in Verona and Don Giovanni at the Arena; Orfeo ed Euridice at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples; Agrippina in Antwerp; concerts in Milan with the Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali and in Palermo with the Orchestra of the Teatro Massimo. He will also play in several concerts with his own ensemble L’Estravagante in Italy and Europe.

M° Montanari will return to Florence conducting Dido and Aeneas at the Opera di Firenze - Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.
