I Barocchisti


This ensemble takes on the artistic legacy of the Società cameristica di Lugano (Switzerland), committing itself since the 50s to the performance of forgotten baroque works. Their musical director was Edwin Löhrer.

The Swiss violinist and mandolin player Duilio Galfetti is their leader. I Barocchisti perform in variable numbers ranging from 5 to 40 members from Switzerland and Italy, all with comprehensive concert experience as soloists and in chamber music.

Under the musical direction of Diego Fasolis, together with the "Coro della Radio Svizzera", they have recorded numerous concerts and discs that were awarded international prizes.


Das Ensemble übernimmt das künstlerische Vermächtnis der Società cameristica di Lugano, die sich unter der Leitung von Edwin Löhrer seit den fünfziger Jahren für die Aufführung vergessener Barockwerke einsetzte. Konzertmeister ist der Schweizer Geiger und Mandolinist Duilio Galfetti. I Barocchisti spielen in variabler Besetzung von 4 bis 40 Mitgliedern aus der Schweiz und Italien, die alle eine umfangreiche solistische und kammermusikalische Konzerterfahrung besitzen. Unter der Leitung von Diego Fasolis haben sie, zusammen mit dem "Coro della Radio Svizzera", zahlreiche Konzerte und mit internationalen Auszeichnungen bedachte Aufnahmen.


L'ensemble "I Barocchisti" bénéficie de l'héritage de la "Società cameristica di Lugano", qui a développé à partir des années 50, sous la conduite d'Edwin Löhrer, une activité fondamentale de revalorisation d'œuvres vocales et instrumentales de l'époque baroque en obtenant des succès tant en concerts qu'en production discographique. I Barocchisti se présente comme un ensemble italo-suisse variant de 4 a 40 musiciens, tous renommées avec à la base une solide formation culturelle et instrumentale et une activité propre de solistes d'envergure internationale, nourrie de diverses expériences auprès des principaux ensembles baroques en Europe. Le caractère "latin" des exécutions, manifeste dans la virtuosité et le rythme équilibré, jusqu'à la mélodie constamment expressive, suscite d'emblée les applaudissements du publique et les écrits enthousiastes de la critique. Conjointement avec le "Coro della Radio Svizzera" et sous la direction de Diego Fasolis, I Barocchisti réalise ces dernières années diverses productions discographiques.


Il complesso raccoglie, sotto la guida di Diego Fasolis, l'eredità della Società cameristica di Lugano che a partire dagli anni 50, sotto la guida di Edwin Löherer, ha svolto un'attività fondamentale per il recupero delle opere vocali e strumentali del Barocco ottenendo successi concertistici e discografici di livello mondiale. Primo violino èil virtuososvizzero Duilio Galfetti. Il complesso si presenta in formazioni variabili da 4 a 40 elementi tutti rinomati virtuosi svizzeri e italiani con una solida preparazione culturale e strumentale e con una propria attività solistica riconosciuta a livello internazionale. I musicisti provengono da varie esperienze con i maggiori complessi barocchi d'Europa. Il carattere "latino" delle esecuzioni improntate al virtuosismo e al ritmo equilibrati da una costante melodicità espressiva stimola il plauso del pubblico e della critica che sin dalle prime apparizioni ha scritto in termini entusiastici. Unitamente al Coro della Radio Svizzera in questi ultimi anni, con la direzione di Fasolis, ha realizzato diverse produzioni concertistiche e discografiche pluripremiate.
