Ghislieri Choir & Consort
Ghislieri Choir & Consort was founded in 2003 by the conductor Giulio Prandi, and the musicians Jorge Alberto Guerrero, Maria Cecilia Farina and Marco Bianchi at the historical Ghislieri College in Pavia, Italy. The vocal and instrumental ensemble specialises in 18th century Italian sacred music. The ensemble is regularly invited to perform at major international festivals and European concert halls, and has been broadcast by radio stations across Europe, such as RAI – Radio 3, Culturebox – France Televisions, Avro Klassiek, France Musique, RTBF Musiq’3, Norddeutsche Rundfunk. Ghislieri Choir & Consort has been working with Sony International since 2010.
The ensemble is dedicated to the rediscovery of 18th century Italian sacred music, and continually research and perform rare and unpublished works. Alongside this, they perform from a late baroque and classical repertoire, with a particular focus on Mozart’s religious works.
After making its discographic debut on the Italian magazine Amadeus, the ensemble entered into collaboration with Sony – Deutsche Harmonia Mundi in 2010. A year later, they put out an album dedicated to Galuppi’s sacred work and recorded a collection of Jommelli’s work in 2013.
