Orchestra

The Florence Chamber Orchestra ranks among Europe’s leading chamber orchestras. Renowned Italian conductor Giuseppe Lanzetta founded it in 1981, and its members are all honour members of the famous Conservatorio di Firenze. The Orchestra has been described as distinctive, “reflecting the widest range of composers of the chamber musig genre“, no small feat considering that Toscanini himself once described the performance of chamber music as “the most intellectually challenging and emotionally intimate collaboration between musicians“. The Florence Chamber Orchestra‘s reputation has grown steadily thanks to appearances on Italian TV and radio, as well as performances at venues around Italy. They have also performed internationally, including at the Mexico City International Music Festival.
