Biography

The acclaimed conductor and winner of several international competitions, Attilio Cremonesi, studied piano, organ, harpsichord and conducting in Piacenza and at the Schola Cantorum in Basel. After being a long-time assistant of René Jacobs, Cremonesi today counts as one of the most renowned specialists of rarely performed classical and baroque compositions. His numerous award-winning recordings evidence his remarkable success.

As a much sought-after interpreter of works ranging from Baroque to Belcanto he has been a guest at institutions such as Wiener Festwochen, Innsbrucker Festwochen, Dresdner Musikfestspiele, Schwetzinger Festspiele, Lucerne Festival, Festival Radio France Montpellier, and the Pergolesi Festival Jesi.
He has conducted opera productions at houses including the Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin, Theater an der Wien, Teatro Municipal de Santiago, Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse,  as well as in Bonn, Oslo, Antwerp, Paris, Montpellier, Geneva, Lucerne, Basel, Amsterdam, Lisbon, and Sydney.

Cremonesi worked with such renowned institutions such as Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, including for the award-winning production of Dido and Aeneas staged by Sasha Waltz, Münchner Symphoniker, Concerto Köln, Freiburger Barockorchester, La Cetra Barockorchester Basel, Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice, Collegium Vocale Gent and Kammerorchester Basel (European tour with Handel’s Ezio as well as solo recitals with Vivica Genaux) and regularly works with the Kärntner Sinfonieorchester.

In recent years, Attilio Cremonesi conducted i.a. Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte at Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile, the new productions Le nozze di Figaro, La Clemenza di Tito and Turco in Italia at Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse, La Cenerentola at Nationaltheater Mannheim, Orfeo in Bern, Tommaso Traetta’s Antigona at Theater an der Wien, Handel’s Giulio Cesare in Klagenfurt, Teseo in Halle and Alcina in Klagenfurt, Rheinsberg and Münster, as well as the new production of the opera Argenore by Wilhelmine von Bayreuth, also at Theater Münster. Furthermore he led the world premiere of Jazziah, a work that combines Jazz and Classical, in Bern and Halle.
During the years 2017-2020, Attilio Cremonesi was Principal Guest Conductor of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile.

In addition, in the last 15 years he has devoted particular attention to the rediscovery of the unpublished operatic and symphonic repertoire of the classicism and romanticism, directing and playing 
compositions of very rare works or premiering the first modern performances.

Engagements in the season 2021/22 include, among others, the new productions of Händel’s Amadigi di Gaula at Theater Meiningen and Il barbiere di Siviglia at Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse.

As of season 21/22 Attilio Cremonesi is the new Artistic Director of Händelfestspielorchester Halle, with whom he will conduct several concerts throughout the season, featuring works by e.g. C.W. Gluck and Franz and Georg Benda.
