Camerata Anxanum

The Camerata Anxanum is a baroque chamber orchestra with original instruments created in Lanciano, Italy, in 1988 by a group of musicians that were already well-known by their activities both as soloists and members of chamber orchestras.


The Camerata Anxanum has gone on tour through Italy and abroad – England, France, Holland, Belgium – playing in important concert halls including London’s St. Martin in the Fields, Oxford’s Holywell Music Room, Brussels’s Chapelle Royale, or Pesaro’s Teatro Rossini, with a resounding success among the critics and the public.


They have collaborated with worldwide known soloists including violoncellist Mario Brunello, bassoonist Sergio Azzolini, conductor and harpsichordist Rinaldo Alessandrini, oboist Alfredo Bernardini, or the great harpsichordist Kenneth Gilbert. Moreover, this group has recorded for the Italian TV channel RAI and under the record label Bongiovanni, with which they have produced several albums including G. F. Haendel’s Arie de Castrato with soprano Angelo Manzotti and the first world’s recording of Michele Mascitti’s I Concerti Grossi Op. 7.


During its visits to Spain, the Camerata Anxanum has given concerts in important concert halls such as Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional and Barcelona’s Palau de la Música with a great success performing the oratorio of G. F. Haendel’s The Messiah.


They have also been on tour through Galician cathedrals and have recently participated in The Centuries of Gold, Madrid’s major baroque music festival with Boccherini’s whole Academic Arias and a program that included Ordóñez’s symphonies.


Apart from its concert activities, the Camerata Anxanum has long devoted itself to publishing. Thanks to the sponsorship of the Abruzzo region, they successfully published Michele Mascitti’s Op. 1, Op. 3, Op. 7, and Op. 9, which now appear in the catalogs of London’s British Library, the Wiener Hochschule, the Music Akademie der Stadt Basel, Amsterdam’s Sweelinck Conservatorium, Salzsburg’s Mozarteum, New York’s Julliard School, or Tokyo’s Documentation Center of Modern Japanese Music. They have also published Stabat Mater, Ave Maria, Misere and two Domine Deus by Fedele Fenaroli.
