Guido Olivieri's interests focus on the influence of social, cultural, and political contexts on the circulation of music and musicians in eighteenth-century Europe. His dissertation (PhD University of California, Santa Barbara) examined the developments of string sonata in Naples at the beginning of the eighteenth century, investigating problems of performance practice, aspects of musical patronage and reconstructing the musical and cultural relationships between Naples and other European capitals.
A Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool (UK) and at The Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America at Columbia University, he has been awarded a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he also taught courses on performance practice and on music of the Baroque and Classical eras.
He has presented papers at several international conferences and published articles and reviews on Baroque instrumental music as well as on the music of Gaetano Donizetti and Luciano Berio in collective volumes and scholarly journals (Notes, Analecta Musicologica, Studi Musicali, Pergolesi Studies
). He has also contributed to the revised editions of The New Grove Dictionary of Music
, Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart
, and the Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani
After his Diploma in violin (Conservatory of Salerno – Italy, 1994), he has devoted his attention to the study of the Baroque violin repertory and performed with several ensembles in Europe and the U.S.
