Enrico Onofri

We are glad to announce that Enrico Onofri has been appointed associate conductor of the Orchestre National d'Auvergne, forming a trio of conductors with principal conductor Thomas Zehetmair and the other associate conductor Christian Zacharias.
Onofri will enrich the orchestra with his refined experience in the field of baroque music and historically informed interpretation, but it's good to remember that in recent years he has dedicated himself with excellent results to the symphonic repertoire of the classical and romantic periods, so much so that he was appointed principal conductor of the Filarmonica Toscanini of Parma and principal guest conductor of the Haydn Philharmonie of Eisenstadt (Austria).
 His latest discographic awards:
- Diapason d'or de l'année 2020 for "Into Nature" CD
- Diapason d'or for "Seicento" CD
- Choc! Classica for "Seicento" CD

Beautiful interview to Enrico Onofri for Il Giornale della Musica:

«...When I look back over the years, the impression is that my work as a musician has been a kind of distillation...»

Enrico Onofri’s "Into Nature" CD recorded with the Imaginarium Ensemble for Passacaille receives the Diapason d'or de l'année 2020:

"25 years after his recording with Il Giardino Armonico, Enrico Onofri demonstrates unparalleled maturity and artistic wisdom. Far from making Vivaldi the main hero of this recording, Onofri pays tribute to Mother Nature, to her saving power and to inspire art through sounds, images, scents, tastes and sensations. The music that accompanies "Le Stagioni" in this album is part of the Italian instrumental repertoire of the seventeenth century and offers a collection of gems that opens the way to Vivaldi's masterpiece.”

The CD Into Nature conducted and played by Maestro Enrico Onofri and the Imaginarium Ensemble, is CD of the month on Amadeus Magazine and won the prestigoius Diapason d'Or of the french magazine:

"The splendid result, often brilliant, is devoid of blatant effects that overshadow the rest. It rather recalls the harmony of some rural landscapes used by Giorgione as backdrop of his paintings, where the thousand voices of the Nature coexist enigmatically in a suspended and dreamlike dimension, out of a specific time."
-Massimo Rolando Zegna, Amadeus Magazine-
