Founded in 1982, La Scala Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble with a rich history. Its musicians are selected from Milan’s renowned La Scala Orchestras: the Filarmonica della Scala and the Orchestra of Teatro alla Scala. La Scala Chamber Orchestra has performed in the most prestigious theatres and concert halls of the world and collaborated with internationally known conductors and soloists.

La Scala Chamber Orchestra’s repertoire includes the most important compositions for chamber orchestras from the 18th century to the present day, with particular attention paid to little-played works by 19th century Italian composers. Many of these pieces are unpublished and are characterized by highly virtuosic solo parts which are well suited to display the extraordinary talents of La Scala Chamber Orchestra’s soloists, all principles in the Filarmonica della Scala and well known concert artists on the international scene.

The musicians of La Scala Chamber Orchestra have consistently worked with the greatest conductors of the world who routinely make guest appearances at Teatro alla Scala, such as Riccardo Muti, Carlo Maria Giulini, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Daniel Barenboim.

These coveted experiences have influenced their sound, bringing out musical characteristics of timbre and phrasing which are certainly unique in the Italian and international panorama of chamber groups.
