In addition to his activities as Founder-Director of the ensemble Concerto Italiano, Rinaldo Alessandrini is renowned as a recitalist on the harpsichord, fortepiano and organ, and is considered one of the most authoritative interpreters of Monteverdi and the baroque repertoire worldwide. His profound knowledge and love of the Italian repertoire is naturally reflected in programmes in which he seeks to reproduce the essential, but often elusive, expressive and cantabile elements so fundamental to Italian music in the 17th and 18th centuries. 

He has performed in Japan, Canada, USA and throughout Europe with the world’s leading orchestras, such as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Freiburger Barockorchester, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Orchestra, Italian Radio Orchestra,  Munich Radio Orchestra, Copenhagen Radio Orchestra, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Liverpool Royal Philharmonic, Melbourne Symphony, Washington Symphony, New World Symphony Orchestra in Miami, Orchestra of Santiago Opera House (Chile), Toulouse Capitole Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Basel Kammerorchester, Seattle Symphony, Geneva Chamber Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Staatskapelle Dresden and Tokyo Philharmonic, to name a few.
Recent engagements as an opera conductor include Handel’s “Giulio Cesare” at Tokyo’s New National Theatre and the complete Monteverdi opera cycle in Milan (La Scala) and Paris (Opera Garnier).

His recordings (for Naive, Astrèe, Arcana, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi) include not only Italian music, but Bach and his contemporaries as well. Alessandrini has garnered the highest critical plaudits including five Gramophone Awards, two Grand Prix du Disque, three Deutscher Schallplattenpreis, Prix Caecilia, the Premio Cini and four Midem Awards in Cannes.

Rinaldo Alessandrini was nominated Chevalier dans l’ordre des Artes et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture and together with Concerto Italiano he was awarded the Italian music critics’ prestigious Premio Abbiati. 
In addition, he is “accademico” of the Accademia Filarmonica Romana and Accademia di Santa Cecilia.
