Duo Essentia

Collaboration with Alice Cortegiani

Original duo that let the artists explore large repertories: classical, romantic, impressionists transcripts, sound tracks, contemporary and sperimental music. The connection between the performers is the will and research of new technical and timbrical possibilities of the instrumets: the curiosity in exploring the new and bring back to life the old: the desire to catch the musical Essentia.

The duo was born in 2015 and gave concerts in many festivals and concert halls: Teatro San Carlo di Modena (G.M.I), Teatro Quarticciolo ( Roma), IUC – Istituzione Universitaria dei concerti, Fondazione Isabella Scelsi, Assoli festival, Conservatorio di Musica “Lucio Campiani” in Mantova, Auditorium Monteverdi during Mantova Musica festival, Arte e Scienza and Roma Tre Orchestra among the others.

In 2018 they are at Festival Pergolesi-Spontini, playing a monographic program of Alessandro Sbordoni and an other with première by Matteo Angeloni, Saverio Santoni and Marco Sinopoli.

In 2019 they make their debut as duo at Festival Nuova Consonanza, with première by Riccardo Santoboni and Giorgio Costantini. In the same year they take part in the theatrical performance "Can You Heart Me", in Macerata Opera Festival and Roma Europa Festival, directed by Lorenzo da Ponte and Clio Saccà and music by Marco Sinopoli. During Desideria festival, organized by Accademia Filarmonica Romana, they play a completely new program, based on texts by L. Pirandello with music by Fabrizio De Rossi Re, Albino Taggeo, Marcello Filotei e Marcello Panni. As they are very involved in the development of new repertories, they collaborated also withother composers like: Matteo D’Amico, Simone Cardini, Domenico Turi, Sofia Avramidou, Massimo Munari.
