Con solo seis años de vida musical, DIVINO SOSPIRO ha realizado una inmensa labor en el panorama musical de Portugal.

Desde su formación, la orquesta ha tocado en varios de los más importantes festivales y salas de conciertos de Europa, incluyendo Festa da Música y Días da Música en Lisboa, el Festival d’Ile de France, Teatro Nacional de São Carlos, Folle Journée de Nantes, Folle Journée de Japón, Varna Summer Festival, el Festival Mozartiana en Gdansk, el Auditorio Nacional de España en Madrid y  el Festival d’Ambronay.

Conjuntamente, DIVINO SOSPIRO sigue realizando grabaciones para radio y televisión: Radio France, Antena 2 y RTP. La grabación para Nichion Japan, dedicada a W.A. Mozart ganó el premio “bestseller” de Japón. “Los Divinos” como son coloquialmente conocidos en el ámbito musical Portugués, están muy bien reconocidos en Lisboa y Portugal, tanto por su cultura musical como por su curiosidad e intensidad en el enfoque y en la interpretación. Estas características, cada vez más pronunciadas, han llegado a ser en estos años una verdadera particularidad del grupo. Actualmente, el repertorio de DIVINO SOSPIRO no se limita solo al período barroco, pues han realizado incursiones en las fronteras con el periodo romántico, además de incluir algunos trabajos de música contemporánea. DIVINO SOSPIRO ha desarrollado una estrecha vinculación artística con grandes músicos tales como Enrico Onofri, Chiara Banchini, Christina Pluhar, Rinaldo Alessandrini, Maria Cristina Kiehr, Alexandrina Pendatchanska, Gemma Bertagnolli, Alfredo Bernardini, Katia y Marielle Labèque, Christophe Coin, Maria Bayo, Kenneth Weiss, Marc Hantai. A lo largo de los años, DIVINO SOSPIRO, cuyo director artístico es Massimo Mazzeo, ha visto aumentar continuamente tanto su repertorio como el número de conciertos. Con una gran y caleidoscópica variedad de diferentes ensembles desde trío de cuerdas hasta orquesta de opera, se presenta con asiduidad tanto en Portugal como en numerosos países del mundo. Actualmente, DIVINO SOSPIRO ostenta el título de orquesta residente en el Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisboa, donde en Enero de 2011 presentó el estreno mundial de la opera Antigono de Antonio Mazzoni. El grupo cuenta con la dirección musical de Enrico Onofri, que aceptó la invitación para ser director principal del ensemble. En 2011, el Ministerio de Cultura Portugués decidió patrocinar la orquesta en muestra de la relevancia y el valor del trabajo que ha hecho durante los últimos años. Desde su formación, DIVINO SOSPIRO ha tenido un papel esencial en la difusión del patrimonio musical portugués. Dentro de sus futuros proyectos destacan su primera aparición en el Festival Bargemusic de Nueva York, en el Varna Summer Festival de Bulgaria y en el Festival Mozart Rovereto de Italia. El próximo Septiembre han sido invitados de nuevo al Festival d’Ambronay. Divino Sospiro acaba de firmar un acuerdo de colaboración con la Fundación Gulbenkian de Lisboa, para ofrecer a lo largo de los próximos cuatro años, un concierto anual sobre música portuguesa y la representación de las tres óperas de Monteverdi.
