Guest Director and violinist
The young Franco-Italian baroque violinist Emmanuel Resche-Caserta has been concertmaster of Les Arts Florissants since 2017. He regularly leads various ensembles in France, Spain, and Belgium, and was appointed baroque violin instructor at the Amsterdam Conservatory in 2022.
After completing studies in Italy, France, Spain, and the US, Emmanuel created his own ensemble, Exit, with whom he has recorded for the Label Passacaille. His first solo recording is dedicated to violin music from Southern Italy in the 17th century, featuring some hidden treasures from Rome, Sicily, and Naples. His second recording focuses on a 1686 outdoor concert given by Corelli in Rome in honour of Louis XIV with a massive orchestra: Trionfo Romano was recorded at the Château de Versailles, and also recreated at the French Embassy (Palazzo Farnese) in Rome. This year sees him conducting Gasparini’s oratorio Atalia in Rome and Versailles with Hemiolia ensemble.
