Since its fi rst performance in 1981, Mantua Chamber Orchestra (OCM) has been showing its qualifying features: technical brilliance, refi nement of timbre, stylistic consistency. In 1997, Mantua Chamber Orchestra was awarded the “Franco Abbiati” prize by Italian musical critics for its peculiar stylistic refi nement and constant search for sound quality, which can eff ectively merge Italian instrumental tradition and classical repertoire. Home to the orchestra is the Bibiena Theatre in Mantova – an authentic jewel of architecture and acoustics. Mantua Chamber Orchestra has been performing for over 30 years with world renown conductors and soloists, and has given several concerts both in Italy and abroad. It has performed in theatres and concert halls all over Europe, in the USA, South America and Asia. Mantua Chamber Orchestra has recorded for RAI (Radiotelevisione Italiana), Bayerischer Rundfunk and Swiss RSTI. In September 2009, the ensemble recorded three of Haydn’s Symphonies, on commissionby “Amadeus”, the most important Italian musical magazine; the CD was greatly appreciated by both audience and critics. Most recently, the orchestra has recorded two equally appreciated CDs (Hyperion) centered on Mozart’s piano concertos. Since 1993, in order to make people appreciate classical music, Mantua Chamber Orchestra has been holding in Mantua a very successful yearly season, “Tempo d’Orchestra”, with the contribution of famous Italian and foreign soloists, chamber groups and orchestras. Moreover, since 2013 it has been producing the “Mantova Chamber Music Festival”, an international meeting held in the Ducal Palace in Mantua.
