Recordings with Sony Classical
Concerto de’ Cavalieri has enjoyed for many years a busy recording activity for Sony. In particular, it is engaged in The Baroque Project, a multi-year project with Sony Classical on Italian Opera in the 18th Century that has arrived at its fifth volume, aiming to rediscover rare operatic masterworks from the Italian Baroque. The first four CDs were respectively dedicated to opera arias and overtures by Alessandro Scarlatti, Pergolesi, Vivaldi and Albinoni, with many world premieres. They have all received critical acclaim, including several International Classical Music Awards nominations. The latest album in this series features Alessandro Scarlatti’s Opera Overtures and Concertos in seven parts, and again includes numerous world premiere recordings.

Marcello di Lisa, harpsichordist, Conductor:
Marcello Di Lisa is the founder of Concerto de’ Cavalieri which, under his direction, has rapidly come to be recognised as one of the leading Italian period instrument orchestras. He completed a PhD in Philology and Greek and Latin Literature at the University of Pisa, and collaborated with major journals in the field of ancient philosophy, studying at the same time piano, harpsichord and composition.
An Alessandro Scarlatti specialist, passionately dedicated to the rediscovery of forgotten works of the Italian Baroque, he has premiered several operas and serenatas, including Scarlatti’s Erminia, Porpora’s La Jole and Vivaldi’s 1720 Tito Manlio, that were all recorded and broadcast live by major international networks.
Marcello Di Lisa has also planned and carried out numerous recordings for Sony and Cpo to critical acclaim. In particular he has started with Sony Classical The Baroque Project, a multi-year project on Italian Opera in the 18th century including many world premiere recordings,
that has arrived at its fifth volume and received several International Classical Music Awards nominations.
In the field of musicological research, he is engaged in study of the late 17th and 18th century Roman musical heritage, with particular attention to the unpublished works of Alessandro Scarlatti.
