LORENZO MICHELI RECITAL
Lorenzo Micheli, theorbist and guitarist, has taken up a busy concert career throughout the world since winning the first prize in some of the most prestigious guitar competitions (Gargnano, Alessandria, “Guitar Foundation of America”). He has played more than 600 concerts all over Europe, in two hundred US and Canadian cities, in Africa, Asia and Latin America, as a soloist and with orchestra. Since 2002 he has been performing worldwide in duo with Matteo Mela – under the name of “SoloDuo” – in such venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Seoul’s Sejong Hall, Kiev’s Hall of Columns and Vienna’s Konzerthaus. Their duo was welcomed by “The Washington Post” as “extraordinarily sensitive – nothing less than rapturous”.
His discography (more than 20 titles in 15 years on the labels Naxos, Stradivarius, Pomegranate, Soundset and Amadeus) includes the music of Dionisio Aguado, the Quartets, op. 19, by François de Fossa, the Sonatas by Viennese composer Ferdinand Rebay, a CD of 17th Century Italian music for baroque guitar, archlute and theorbo, a collection of Arias and Cantatas by Alessandro Scarlatti, the complete guitar Concertos and the 24 Preludes and Fugues for two guitars by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, a double CD of chamber masterpieces by Mauro Giuliani, Miguel Llobet’s complete guitar works, Antoine de Lhoyer’s Duos Concertants, three anthologies of music for two guitars (“Noesis”, “Solaria” and “Metamorphoses”), and the album “Morning in Iowa” (with David Knopfler). His latest recording, “Autumn of the Soul”, was released by Contrastes Records.
A very active editor and researcher, he has published solo and chamber works with guitar by such composers as Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Ferdinand Rebay. He is in charge of a collection of music for two guitars for Éditions d'Oz.
Lorenzo lives in Milan, Italy. He teaches at the University School of Music in Lugano, Switzerland, and he is Artist in Residence at both the University of Colorado Boulder and Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. For further info, please visit www.lorenzomicheli.com and www.soloduo.it
