Marchigiana Philharmonic Orchestra
The Marchigiana Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1985 and is now managed by the Marche Regional Orchestra Foundation. It is one of the thirteen Italian orchestras recognised by the Ministry of Culture.
The orchestra gives an annual season of concerts in the region and collaborates in principal operatic performances, working with distinguished soloists and conductors, and paying particular attention to past composers associated with the region, notably Pergolesi, Rossini and Spontini, and to contemporaries.
There have been regular performances in Switzerland and Austria, and recordings by the orchestra include Pergolesi’s La serva padrona and Stabat Mater, Richard Strauss’s Guntram, Rossini Overtures, Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, and Verdi’s Oberto Conte di San Bonifacio and Preludes and Overtures. In 2003 a DVD of Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore was released, and in 2004 recordings of Mahler’s Symphony No. 9 and a DVD of Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffmann.
