The string ensemble I Cameristi Lombardi was founded in Brescia in 1971 by Mario Conter, along with violinists Mario Sorlini and Giorgio Bar, and cellist Marco Perini. Their aim was to focus on the music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but also to promote contemporary repertoire.

I Cameristi went on to appear to great acclaim at leading venues and festivals across Italy, as well as in Switzerland, Belgium, France, Luxemburg, Spain, the former Yugslavia, Greece, Turkey, Japan and Hong Kong. In 1990 its players undertook a successful tour of the former Soviet Union, performing at prestigious concert halls in Moscow, St Petersburg, Riga and Tbilisi. Five years later they gave equally acclaimed performances at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Kaufmann Concert Hall and Metropolitan Museum.

Mario Conter remained the ensemble’s principal conductor, while Umberto Benedetti-Michelangeli appeared with I Cameristi on several occasions as guest conductor.
