Cameristi della Scala

The chamber orchestra of Cameristi della Scala was founded in 1982 and is formed by musicians from the orchestra of Teatro alla Scala. Cameristi della Scala has performed in the most prestigious theatres and concert halls in the world. The last October Cameristi performed in New York at the United Nations Auditorium celebrating the 60th anniversay of Italy in the UN. In recent years Cameristi performed for concert series at the Carnegie Hall in New York, at the MIT in Boston and Washington. Cameristi also performed at the Paris headquarters of Unesco and Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Warsaw Opera Theatre, the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Tonhalle in Zurich, Coliseum in Buenos Aires and has toured China, Spain, Germany, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Poland, Latvia, Serbia and Turkey. In 2011, for the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy and in collaboration with the Associazione Musica del Risorgimento, the Cameristi carried out important research on the new 19th century repertoire and they made a CD, dedicated to Italian music in the Risorgimento. In September 2011, for the MiTo Festival, the Cameristi performed Mass for King Charles Albert by the composer from Novara Carlo Coccia (1849) for the first time in modern times. They also edited three volumes on music from the Risorgimento for the publisher Carisch. The orchestra’s repertoire includes the principal compositions for chamber orchestras from the 18th century to today, including particular attention to the lesser known Italian instrumental pieces of the 19th century, often characterised by solo parts of great virtuosity which fit well with the instrument characteristics of the group’s soloists, all first musicians in the first sections of the La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra and also well-known concert performers at international level. The constant and many years of attendance of the greatest conductors on the international scene, from Riccardo Muti to Daniel Barenboim, have contributed to shape the sound of the Cameristi della Scala and allowed their musical timbre and phrasing characteristics to emerge – all characteristics that are definitely unique in the Italian musical panorama of chamber orchestras.
