Lorenzo Ghielmi


Lorenzo Ghielmi has dedicated may years of his career to the study and performance of Renaissance and Baroque music. He has performed all over Europe, in Japan, and in the United States, and he has made numerous solo-recordings for broadcast and CD.

He published a book on Nicolaus Bruhns, and several essays on organ building in the 16th and 17th centuriers and on performing Bach‘s music.

In 2005 he‘s founded his ensemble La Divina Armonia, with which he realised several recordings, as organ concertos of Handel (two parts, both distinguished with the diapason d‘or in France) and Haydn, the Passion after St. John of Francesco Feo as well as music of Bach. Furthermore the ensemble was invited to several of the most important festivals and stages of Early Music in Europa, as the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht, Osterfestival Hall in Tirol, Salzburger Bachfest, Bozart Brussels, as well as to Oslo or Bruges.

Ghielmi teaches organ, harpsichord and chamber music at the Accademia Internazionale della Musica in Milan. Since 2006 he has also held the chair of organ professor at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Eventually he is the organist of the Basilica of San Simpliciano in Milan.

Here you'll find an interview with Lorenzo Ghielmi from the German Early Music Magazine Toccata - Alte Musik Aktuell (in German).
