The Ensemble

Stile Galante is a cultural project devoted to Italian music of the 18th century, started in 2010. The project aims to merge academic research and performance and focuses the attention of scholars and musicians on vocal music. The enormous repertoire legacy of the Solo Chamber Cantata (starting from the best works by Leo, Vinci and Porpora) is one of the most important fields in which we specialize.

We think that devoting our attentions to this usually ignored or misunderstood repertoire can bring back to the audience pages of rare beauty and inspire our musicians to get continually in touch with a musical language and a taste today usually adapted to unhistorical expectations.

Stile Galante also works with opera, taking care of performance practice issues elsewhere usually ignored. The ensemble records for Pan Classics and Glossa, and is conducted by Stefano Aresi.

Stile Galante promotes each year a university conference and offers cultural events in collaboration with schools and public and private cultural institutes.
