In 1980 he founded the David Short Brass Ensemble, playing with them for leading concert societies in Italy and also touring America, Spain, Finland, France, Austria and Germany with performances recorded by the national radio networks.
Bartoletti has also participated in the realization of numerous soundtracks, collaborating with composers like Nino Rota and Nicola Piovani, and in addition composed the music of Geo & Geo for Fonit-Cetra.
He collaborated with Giovanna Marini in the works Le cadeau de l'Empereur and Requiem, conducting the premiere of La dichiarazione dei diritti dell'uomo composed for the bicentenary of the French Revolution (a joint Antenne 2 - Scuola Popolare di Musica di Testaccio production).
