Synopsis

Founded in 1964, the Banda dell’Esercito (Army Band) is the representative musical ensemble of the Armed Force. It is made up of from one hundred and two orchestral musicians, an archivist, a Master Conductor and a Master Deputy Conductor, all of whom graduated from Italy's leading music institutions and were recruited through selective national competition. It is active both for institutional services and in an intense concert activity that has seen it as a protagonist in the most prestigious theaters in Italy and abroad (France, Holland, Malta, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Egypt, Germany, in the Balkan area and in the United States of America).

Notable activities include participation in the National Verdi Celebrations, the "Feste Musicali" in Bologna, the International Festival of Military Bands in Modena, and - with other artists including Placido Domingo - the Gala Concert for the 90th birthday of Giancarlo Menotti (Spoleto, 2001). He took part in Spoleto's "Festival dei due mondi" in the 1998, 1999, 2001, 2005, 2019 editions and gave the inaugural concert of the 2002 edition. In 2005, at the invitation ofAccademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, she took part, at the Parco della Musica in Rome, in the opening evening of the "K Festival," a triennial review dedicated to Mozart. In 2006 she was included in the Settembre Musica to Turin playbill and in the symphonic season of the GOG in Genoa. In 2015 she participated in the final evening of the Sanremo Festival, and in the years 2021 and 2022 she was the protagonist of the closing of the "Regio Opera Festival" at the beautiful courtyard of Palazzo Arsenale to Turin. It has collaborated with world-renowned soloists such as Daniela Dessì, Placido Domingo, Steven Mead, Jacques Mauger, Katia Ricciarelli and Gianluca Terranova, and is the first Italian military ensemble to have had "guest conductors" on the podium, including Daniele Carnevali, Thomas Fraschillo and David Gregory.

His repertoire ranges from the celebratory one to the lyrical symphonic one, with particular predilection for original music for Banda, deepened both in historical pages and in pieces with the most vivid topicality. He has to his credit the presence to numerous radio-television broadcasts and an intense record production, recently expanded with the CDs containing live recordings of the 2001 and 2003 concerts at the "International Festival of Military Bands" in Modena, with the CDs "Cinecittà", "Flumen" and "The Age of Mozart" made for Edizioni Scomegna, of the CD "Bella Italia" (Soloist Steven Mead) for London's "Bocchino" Editions, with the CD "Divagazioni musicali" published by Eufonia Editions, and recently with a CD of music by Luigi Zaninelli recorded in a co-production with the American Universities of Southern Mississippi and Illinois. Also being released is a CD with original music for trombone and band recorded by the first trombone soloist of the prestigious Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Enzo Turriziani, who chose the Army Band for his recording debut. His performance of the Italian National Anthem, recorded in the version most faithful to Novaro's original score, was chosen and included, among the symbols of the Republic, on the Quirinale website. Led in the past by Maestros Amleto Lacerenza, Marino Bartoloni, Domenico Cavallo (f.f.), Fulvio Creux, Antonella Bona (s.v.), since July 2019 it has been conducted by Maj. Filippo Cangiamila.
