Enrico Radesca was an Italian composer and organist.
From 1597 until 1615 he was organist at the Turin Cathedral. In 1615 he became its choir director. Enrico was also a musician at the House of Savoy, first at the service of Don Amedeo, illegitimate son of Carlo Emanuele I, and then the Court's maestro di cappella.
Enrico composed both sacred and secular music. In Venice were published his Messa con mottetti 8 vv. bc. (now lost) and Messe et motetti a 8 v. con b.c. Libro primo, Op. XI (1620), containing two masses and twelve motets. Between 1605 and 1610 he published four books of Canzonette, madrigali et arie alla romana a due voci, per cantare et sonare con il chitarrone o spinetta; the first of the books was edited in Milan.
