Enrico Onofri is principal conductor of the Filarmonica Toscanini in Parma, principal guest conductor of the Austrian-Hungarian Haydn Philharmonic, associate conductor of the Münchener Kammerorchester and the Orchestre National d’Auvergne, and principal conductor of the Real Câmara Baroque Orchestra in Lisbon. He grew up in the antique atelier of his parents in Ravenna, Italy, surrounded by the beauty of the past from the beginning of his musical studies, developing a passion for historical performance. As a conductor and soloist, he has been drawn to explore the repertoire from the 17th to the 20th centuries, creating his own personal language through a deep knowledge of historical practices, understood as extraordinary sources of inspiration for new ideas and interpretative panoramas.

 

His career began with an invitation from Jordi Savall to be the concertmaster of La Capella Real when he was still a student. He soon found himself working with groups such as Concentus Musicus Wien, Quatuor Mosaïques, and Il Giardino Armonico, the ensemble he led as concertmaster and soloist from 1987 to 2010. In 2002, he embarked upon a conductor’s career, which has brought him great acclaim and numerous invitations from orchestras, opera houses and festivals all over Europe, Japan and Canada. From 2004 to 2013, he was principal conductor of the Divino Sospiro orchestra in Lisbon; since 2006, he has been guest conductor with the Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, and former principal conductor of the Academia Montis Regalis orchestra.

 

He has received invitations to conduct or be conductor in residence from orchestras such as the Akademie für Alte Musik, Camerata Bern, Bochumer Symphoniker, Wiener Kammerorchester, the Lucerne Festival Strings, Kammerorchester Basel, Tafelmusik Toronto, the Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa, Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla, Orchestre de l’Opéra de Lyon, Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia, Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa, Real Filharmonia de Galicia, Riga Sinfonietta, and more. In the field of opera, he has conducted opera productions at the Lyon Opéra, the Teatro de la Maestranza of Sevilla, Torino Teatro Regio or Opernhaus Halle, among others.

 

He founded the Imaginarium Ensemble chamber group to perform the great Italian solo violin repertoire from the early Baroque to Classicism. Imaginarium Ensemble’s CDs have been awarded many prizes (among them, the prestigious French Diapason d’Or de l’Année 2020).

 

Enrico Onofri has performed in the world’s most famous concert halls alongside artists such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Gustav Leonhardt, Christophe Coin, Cecilia Bartoli, Katia and Marielle Labèque, and more. Many of his recordings have been awarded prestigious international prizes, such as the Gramophone Award, the Grand Prix des Discophiles, Echo –Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, Premio Caecilia, Premio Fondazione Giorgio Cini of Venice, La Nouvelle Academie du Disque and numerous Diapason d’Or and Choc de la Musique awards, as well as a “10” rating from the Répertoire des Disques Compacts.

 

Enrico Onofri was a professor of Baroque violin and interpretation of Baroque music at the Alessandro Scarlatti Conservatoire in Palermo for many years and is currently a professor at the Gioachino Rossini Conservatoire in Pesaro. He has been invited to give master classes throughout Europe, Canada, USA (the Juilliard School, New York), and Japan. He has been a tutor and conductor with the European Union Baroque Orchestra. In 2019 he was awarded the Franco Abbiati Prize as best soloist of the year.
