AllgemeinesIwas born in Naples and am 21-year-old Italian classical guitarist, whose guitar playing has taken to many countries in Europe, where I have given concerts, participated in masterclasses and much more.
Über michAmong the numerous international competitions that I have won, the highlights include winning First Prizes at Rago International Guitar Competition in Stuttgart, International Competition for Young Guitarists ‘Andrés Segovia’ in Monheim am Rhein and the Uppsala International Guitar Festival Competition in Sweden.
Über michI began my musical studies at the age of seven with my father, a guitar teacher. I attended the music high school "Margherita di Savoia" in Naples in the guitar class of Enzo Amato. At 16 I spent one year at the Blatchington Mill School in Brighton (UK) perfecting the English language and deepening the study of the guitar privately with Carlos Bonell at the Royal College of Music of London. I studied also at the "San Pietro a Majella" Conservatory of Music in Naples and later in the "Domenico Cimarosa" Conservatory of Music in Avellino in the class of Lucio Matarazzo, graduating with full marks, honour and special mention. At the moment I am studying with Paolo Pegoraro and Lukasz Kuropaczewski at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst, in Graz.
ErfahrungI have a lot of experience with teaching, both children and adults. My new album Avant l’Aube, released at the end of 2020 (Timespan recordings), features music by composers such as J. Rodrigo, D. Scarlatti and A. Rago, all of whom are representative of an intimate, delicate and passionate musical feel – characteristics that stand out in my playing and to which my audience are drawn.
