Alessandro De Marchi is in demand at the highest level for his interpretations of repertoire ranging from the early baroque through the works of Mozart, Haydn and their contemporaries, to the late bel canto masterpieces.

Engagements this season include Don Giovanni at Staatsoper Berlin, Guillaume Tell at Staatsoper Hannover, Barbiere di Siviglia at Teatro Regio (Torino) and Semperoper  Dresden, and Weihnachtsoratorium at Hamburg Ballet. As a guest conductor, De Marchi also returns to hr-Sinfonieorchester and Münchner Rundfunkorchester as well as debuts with Turku Philharmonic. Projects with his own period ensemble, Academia Montis Regalis, include performances at Innsbrucker Festwochen der alten Musik, Musikfestspiele Sanssouci and Wigmore Hall in London. Since 2009 De Marchi has held the position of Artistic Director at Innsbruck’s Festwochen der Alten Musik and will continue so until 2021.

A passionate advocate for lesser known works, De Marchi has championed Cimarosa’s Il matrimonio segreto and Graun’s Cesare e Cleopatra (Staatsoper Berlin), Hasse’s Cleofide (Dresden), Vivaldi’s Orlando Paladino (Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw) and Pergolesi’s L’Olimpiade (Teatro San Carlo di Napoli, Innsbruck and the Pergolesi Festival in Jesi).

Equally associated with the operas of Rossini and Handel, De Marchi has conducted La Cenerentola, L’Italiana in Algeri and Demetrio e Polibio at opera houses such as Hamburg, Dresden, Staatsoper Berlin and La Monnaie, and Alcina, Teseo, Orlando, and Rinaldo at Opéra de Lyon, Komische Oper Berlin, Aalto Theater Essen and Händel Festspiele Halle.

Also very much at home in classical repertoire, De Marchi has conducted Gluck’s Iphigenie en Tauride in Hamburg and Iphigenie en Aulide in Vienna; and encounters with Haydn include L’isola disabitata at Staatsoper Berlin and Innsbruck. Mozart forms an extensive part of his activities: De Marchi has led performances of La clemenza di Tito (Innsbruck and the National Theatre Prague), Don Giovanni (Hamburg), Cosi fan tutte and Le nozze di Figaro (Brussels) and Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Dresden). Other operatic engagements include Dido and Aeneas (Florence), L’incoronazione di Poppea (Oslo) Anna Bolena (Cologne) Don Pasquale and La Vestale (Brussels).

In the concert hall De Marchi has conducted, amongst others, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Wiener Symphoniker, Orchestre National de France, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice, Essener Philharmoniker, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Orchestre de Chambre de Genève and a special project of Die Kunst der Fuge with Staatskapelle Berlin.

An extensive discography includes La Sonnambula (with Cecilia Bartoli and Juan Diego Flórez) for Decca, L’Olimpiade, La Stellidaura vendicante, Flavius Bertaridus and the Händel-Caldara Carmelite Vespers for Sony/Harmonia Mundi as well as Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno for Hyperion, Vivaldi’s Juditha Triumphans and Orlando finto pazzo for Naïve and DVDs of L’incoronazione di Poppea for EuroArts and L’elisir d’amore for Dynamic.
