Italian conductor Alessandro de Marchi is well known for his historically up to date performances of Baroque operas and oratorios. As students, he went to the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, where he examined organ and structure, as well as the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, where he examined harpsichord, basso continuo, and chamber music. In 1989, he started dealing with René Jacobs being a harpsichordist, and followed recitatives in Baroque operas until he started his conducting profession. He became the movie director of the Celebration of Early Music in Innsbruck this year 2010, and he produced the Academia Montis Regalis, among Italy’s most important period device ensembles. He provides documented for Opus 111, Naïve, Hyperion, and Deutsche Harmonia Mundi.
