Winner of several international competitions, the acclaimed conductor Attilio Cremonesi studied piano, organ, harpsichord and conducting in Piacenza and at the Schola Cantorum in Basel. He was a long-time assistant of René Jacobs, which hugely boosted his career.

Attilio Cremonesi is one of the most renowned specialists of rarely performed classical and baroque compositions. His numerous award-winning recordings evidence his remarkable success.

As a much sought-after interpreter of Mozart, Händel, Monteverdi as well as Rameau, Vivaldi, Purcell, Sartori, Hasse and many others, he has been guest at some of the most important concert halls, opera houses and festivals of the world, such as Innsbrucker Festwochen, Wiener Festwochen, Dresdner Musikfestspielen, Schwetzinger Festspielen, Lucerne Festival, Festival Radio France Montpellier, Pergolesi Festival Jesi, Prager Frühling, Deutsche Oper and Staatsoper Berlin, Oper Bonn, Oper Oslo, De Vlaamse Opera Antwerpen, Théâtre des Champs Elysées Paris, Théâtre du Capitole Toulouse, Opéra Montpellier, Grand Théatre Génève, Luzerner Theater, Theater Basel, Theater an der Wien, Het Muziektheater Amsterdam, São Carlos Lissabon, and the Pinchgut Opera Sidney.

He worked with such renowned institutions as Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin (Purcell: Dido and Aeneas, Händel: Jephtha), Vocalconsort Berlin, Freiburger Barockorchester (Rossini: La Scala di Seta), La Cetra Barockorchester Basel (Haydn: Il mondo della luna), Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice, Collegium Vocale Gent, Netherlands Bach Society, Café Zimmermann (solo recital with Vivica Genaux), and Balthasar-Neumann-Ensemble. He also toured Europe with the Kammerorchester Basel (Händel: Ezio).

In recent years, he conducted various concerts with the La Cetra Baroque Orchestra Basel at the Innsbruck Festival and with the Munich Symphonic Orchestra, among others. He led Orfeo in Bern and Antigona (Tommaso Traetta) at the Theater an der Wien with the theater’s young ensemble. Furthermore, he guested in Rheinsburg with a production of Alcina (Stage Director: Isabel Ostermann), before that in Klagenfurt with Handel’s Guilio Cesare, and regularly conducts concerts with the Kärntner Sinfonieorchester.

Attilio Cremonesi has a close relationship with Toulouse, where he recently led the new production of Le Nozze di Figaro at the Théâtre du Capitole and, in future, will also be leading the new productions of Turco in Italia and Clemenza di Tito.

Other upcoming projects include concerts with the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, at the Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile productions of Le Nozze die Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte, and Die Zauberflöte, a European tour with Concerto Cologne, including concerts in Amsterdam and various cities in Spain, an Alcina production at the Städtische Bühnen Münster, as well as a collaboration with the Camerata Bern for the world premiere of Jazziah, a compositional conjunction of jazz and classical music.
