Claudio Osele

Following up on his investigations and discoveries in eighteenth-century manuscripts scores and autographs, Claudio Osele founded Le Musiche Nove in 2001 with the goal of making his research findings visibile and alive on stage and records. Since then, he has brought back to music life many unjustly forgotten baroque works. His innovative activity is also evident in the series of recordings with Cecilia Bartoli on which he acted as music consultant: The Vivaldi Album, Opera Proibita, The Salieri Album and Gluck Italian Arias. A wide-ranging project devoted to the rediscovery of the music by composers of the “Neapolitan” School has originated several concerts and the CD Lava, featuring the soprano Simone Kermes, followed-up by Colori d’Amore, a disc of almost all word-premiere recordings of music by Scarlatti, Caldara, Broschi, Matteis and Bononcini. His recording of Marc’Antonio e Cleopatra (which was awarded Le Diamant d’Opéra) featuring Vivica Genaux and Francesca Lombardi Mazzulli, has just been released by DHM/Sony, the beginning of a long-term project devoted to the works of Johann Adolf Hasse.
