Giovanni Antonini (Conductor)

Born in Milan, Giovanni studied at the Civica Scuola di Musica and at the Centre de Musique Ancienne in Geneva. He is a founder member of the Baroque ensemble “Il Giardino Armonico”, which he has led since 1989. With this ensemble, he has appeared as conductor and soloist on the recorder and Baroque transverse flute in Europe, United States, Canada, South America, Australia, Japan and Malaysia. He is Artistic Director of the Wratislavia Cantans Festival in Poland and Principal Guest Conductor of the Mozarteum Orchester and Kammerorchester Basel.

He has performed with many prestigious artists including Cecilia Bartoli, Isabel Faust, Viktoria Mullova, Giuliano Carmignola, Giovanni Sollima, Sol Gabetta, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Sumi Jo, Kristian Bezuidenhout and Emmanuel Pahud. Renowned for his refined and innovative interpretation of the classical and baroque repertoire, Antonini is also a regular guest with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Concertgebouworkest, Tonhalle Orchester, Mozarteum Orchester, Orquesta Nacional de España and Leipzig Gewandhausorchester.

His opera productions have included Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Handel’s Alcina at Teatro alla Scala in Milano and Handel’s Giulio Cesare with Cecilia Bartoli. In 2013 he conducted Bellini’s Norma at Salzburg festival, reprised in summer and autumn 2015 and in Monte Carlo in February 2016. In 2018 he returns to Zurich Opera to conduct Idomeneo. In the 2017-18 season, performances also include return visits to Kozerthaus Orchester Berlin, Tonhalle Orchester Zurich, Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala and Symphonieorchester und Chor des Bayersichen Rundfunks, and debuts with Chicago Symphony and Kammerakademie Potsdam.

With Il Giardino Armonico, Antonini has recorded numerous CDs of instrumental works by Vivaldi as part of his wider recorded repertoire of seventeenth and eighteenth century Italian composers, J.S. Bach (Brandenburg Concertos) and Biber and Locke for Teldec. With Naïve he recorded Vivaldi’s opera Ottone in Villa, and in the recent years he has been recording with Il Giardino Armonico for Decca, including Alleluia with Julia Lezhneva. With the Kammerorchester Basel he has recorded Beethoven Symphonies and most recently a disc of flute concertos with Emmanuel Pahud entitled Revolution. In 2013 he conducted a recording of Bellini’s Norma for Decca in collaboration with Orchestra La Scintilla.

Antonini is the artistic director of the Haydn 2032 project, created to realise a vision to record and perform with Il Giardino Amonico and Kammerochester Basel, the complete symphonies of Joseph Haydn by the 300th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Volumes 1-4 have been released on the Alpha Classics label with the 5th; L’Homme de Génie to be released later in 2017.
