Beatrice Scaldini


Beatrice trained at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole (Florence) and at the Royal Academy of Music (London) as a Newby Trust Scholar. Following an inspiring encounter with Walter Reiter, she began exploring the fascinating world of period performance, and now performs and records with specialist ensembles across Europe, including the English Baroque Soloists/Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique (Sir J.E. Gardiner), Europa Galante (F. Biondi), Dunedin Consort (J.Butt), La Chambre Philharmonique (E. Krivine), Le Cercle de l’Harmonie (J. Rhorer), Academia Montis Regalis (A. de Marchi), Modo Antiquo (F.M.Sardelli) and the Hanover Band.

She has also been invited to lead Concerto Italiano (R. Alessandrini), La Nuova Musica (D. Bates) and Oxford Baroque. As a chamber musician, Beatrice won both the RAM Early Music Prize and the Fenton House Ensemble Competition, performing with Ensemble Caravaggio at Handel House Museum, The Cobbe Collection, Finchcocks and the Händel Festspiel Göttingen.

Beatrice also works as an Italian and Latin language coach for the Monteverdi Choir and her English translation of G.Sigismondo’s ‘Apotheosis of Music in the Kingdom of Naples’ (1820) is due for publication in 2016.
