The Alessandro Stradella Consort
is a vocal and instrumental ensemble, formerly called the Camerata Ligure, founded in July 1987 by Estévan Velardi. It focuses on the Italian baroque repertoire on period instruments. Its musical exploration ranges from the Renaissance to the present, ranging from vocal or instrumental duo to a grandiose opera or oratorio with vocal soloists, chorus and a large orchestra. It is especially dedicated to reviving rare or unpublished works by Italian composers of the late 17th-early 18th centuries. Its recordings comprise a vast repertoire including instrumental and vocal/instrumental works, oratorios and operas for several labels beside Dynamic.
