Carlo Marchione, born in 1964 in Rome, was winner of seven major prizes at international competitions from 1980-1992, and for years has been among the world’s foremost classical guitarists. Marchione has performed as a solo guitarist, with orchestras and chamber music ensembles. He is a professor at the Conservatory in Maastricht and regularly leads master classes at various European Conservatoires. He has inspired composers such as Abel Carlevaro, Carlo Domeniconi and John Duarte to write pieces for him. Always looking for new ideas for his repertoire, he discovered almost forgotten compositions which come out like jewels through his transcriptions. He has been highly praised for his editing of 12 Violin Fantasies by Georg Philipp Telemann, which is released as a CD and music book.
“About Carlo Marchione, I’ve already written all possible good things one can write about him….he has confirmed to us his greatest inspiration and his perfect art of interpretation” (Danielle Ribouillaut, Les Cahiers de la Guitare)”.
“Standing ovation for the completely humble guitar master, one of the best….touching how tenderly he unlocks the melody from the strings of his guitar with extreme precision and lyrical expansion…”
