Carlo Putelli

After completing his musical studies at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia, Carlo Putelli enhanced his skills under the guidance of Sesto Bruscantini and Rockwell Blake and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, where he acquired German vocal repertoire with Rudolf Knoll. At the same time he was a chorus artist and sang with conductors such as Sawallisch, Giulini, Thielemann, Chung, Temirkanov, Albrecht, Abbado and Pappano. In 2008 he was at Utrecht-Fest with Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante. In 2009 he made his début as the Evangelist in Bach's Johannes-Passion conducted by Rilling in Milan.

In recent years he has been increasingly committed to contemporary music both as a performer and as a composer, collaborating with Luis Bacalov and founding Ensemble “Labirinto”, laboratory of voices that inaugurated its activities with the execution of Pärt's Berliner Messe. Still in the contemporary context, note the recent concert “Miserere”, co-production between Santa Cecilia and Musica per Roma, where he is among the four soloists of David Lang's The little match girl passion conducted by Tonino Battista. With Maestro Pappano and the Santa Cecilia Orchestra he recently performed Hans Werner Henze's Opfergang  in Rome, Hamburg and Frankfurt.
