Lute & Guitar

With his words: “My approach to music has always been transversal and I still find myself tackling different repertoires with the same passion and interest of a researcher. A long time ago a plucked string tied me to music and to the act of playing: its resonance has helped me give shape to ideas, to get to know myself and has been a strong rope on which to anchor an important part of my life. I studied with Lena Kokkaliari, Paolo Cherici and Elena Casoli.


I have gained experience working in different musical contexts, with singers (Cecilia Bartoli, Franco Fagioli, Emma Kirkby, Sandrine Piau, Andreas Scholl), with conductors (Giovanni Antonini, Pierre Boulez, Peter Eötvös, Pablo Heras-Casado, Sir Roger Norrington), with orchestras (Tonhalle Orchester, Orchestra La Scintilla, Venice Baroque Orchestra, ZKO Chamber Orchestra), with classical soloists (Sergio Azzolini, Giuliano Carmignola, Daniel Hope, Maurice Steger), with contemporary ensembles (Lucerne Festival Academy) and ensembles of ancient music (La Corona Freiburg, Collegium Musicum, Freitagsakademie, Hilliard Ensemble), with jazz musicians (Fausto Beccalossi, Daniel Schyder), with actors (Carina Braunschmidt, Martin Hug, Ottavia Piccolo), theatrical companies (Cie Bussonnière, Cisco Aznar, Thom Luz).

I have played as soloist as well as in chamber ensembles and orchestras, working in with a variety of festivals, musical institutions and associations. Among these I would like to mention specifically: “Carnegie Hall“ New York, “Philarmonie“ and “Konzerthaus” Berlin, “Mito Art Tower” Japan, “Opera” Dubai and “Philharmonia” Saint Petersburg.


I have recorded for various labels (Deutsche Grammophon, Berlin Classic, Stradivarius, Trilogy, Maine), radios (SWR, DRS 2, Radio Classica, Ö1) and televisions channels (ARTÈ, Rai, ORF1, ORF2, 3sat, SF1)”.
