About Mr. Barile
Born in Buenos Aires, Claudio Barile has developed a long and successful career in South America, Europe, and the United States as a major exponent of the Argentinian artistic musical tradition. As Principal Flute and Soloist of the Buenos Aires Philharmonic since 1984, and a member of the Orchestra since 1974, Mr. Barile has been featured often performing the major solo flute repertoire at the famous Teatro Colon.
Mr. Barile has also held orchestral positions with the Buenos Aires Musical Ensemble, Mexico’s Orchestra of the Americas, The National Symphony of Argentina, and the Berlin Philharmonic, where he participated in the recording of the Brahms Serenata 1, Op. 11, in D Major, conducted by Claudio Abbado.
His international solo performances as a member of Camerata Bariloche have included concerts in Europe and the U.S., including an historic performance during the 100th anniversary celebration of New York’s Carnegie Hall. Mr. Barile’s recording of Alberto Ginastera’s Impressiones de la Puna with Camerata Bariloche is on the Dorian Label.
