Werba, C. Desderi, and studied at the Britten-Pears School in Aldeburgh (Great Britain) with A. Rolfe-Johnson and S. Walker. He made his debut in 1987 at the Carcano Theatre in Milan singing Falla's El retablo de Maese Pedro, and two years later he distinguished himself in Monteverdi's Vespers of the Blessed Virgin conducted by Sir J.

His repertoire includes XVIth and XVIIth century music (often performed with Early Music groups, as Concerto Italiano and La Venexiana, with which he has recorded many CDs awarded with Gramophone Award, Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, Grand Prix du Disque), as well as operas, oratorios and symphonic works by Bach, Händel, Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Rossini, Verdi, Stravinskij, Britten, Weill. As a recitalist, he has a predilection for German Lied and XXth century music, with several first performances to his credit.

In the same year he began to study conducting, and one year later he made his debut as a conductor with Monteverdi’s Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda. Since then, he has conducted works by Cavalli, Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Stravinskij.
