Luca Oberti, described by the press as “one of the finest harpsichord talents in Europe” is one of the most highly acclaimed young musicians of today, both in the world of solo and chamber music and in the opera house.
He studied with Emilia Fadini, Christophe Rousset and Pierre Hantaï and has won prestigious awards such as the Diploma of Merit (Diploma di Merito) from the Chigiana Academy in Siena, and the National Prize for Art (Premio Nazionale delle Arti) from the Italian Ministry of Culture. This led him to begin a thriving concert career at a very young age, performing regularly with orchestras and soloists such as Les Musiciens du Louvre, Les Talens Lyriques, Il Pomo d’oro, Les Ambassadeurs and Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, Enrico Onofori, Stefano Montanari, Amandine Beyer, Véronique Gens, and Max Emanuel Cenčić, in the most important concert halls of Europe including Konzerthaus Wien, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Konzerthaus Berlin and Mozarteum Salzburg, among others.
As a harpsichordist, fortepianist and assistant conductor, he has worked on many opera productions in theatres such as La Monnaie, Brussels, Theater an der Wien, Théatre du Capitole, Toulouse, Théatre des Champs Elysées, Paris, Opéra de Lausanne and Beijing Poly Theater, under such conductors as Marc Minkowski, Christophe Rousset and Ludovic Morlot.
His first solo CD, devoted to the harpsichord works of L. Marchand and LN Clérambault, published by Stradivarius in September 2015, is gaining unanimous acclaim of both audiences and critics. Luca Oberti also recorded for Naïve, Glossa and Enchiriadis, as well as for the main European television and radio stations (BBC, ORF, RAI, Mezzo, Arte, among others).
In 2014, he founded the Xarabande ensemble in Milan. The group specialises in baroque and classical chamber repertoire, especially highlighting its dramatic and theatrical characteristics.
