Carlo Marchione, born in 1964 in Rome, is among the top classical guitarists of his generation. In the course of his career he has been awarded many top prizes in International competitions (Ancona 1979/80, “L. Legnani” Parma 1981, “M. Giuliani” 1982, “Ville de Sablé” 1985, Gargnano 1989, “N. Paganini” 1991, “Città di Latina” 1992).
He is a regular guest at Festivals throughout Europe (Italy, Spain, France, Holland, England, Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Rumania, Ukraine, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Croatia) appearing both as soloist and with orchestra and various chamber music ensembles.
While touring Russia in 1997 he was invited to perform in the prestigious Main Auditorium of “Tchaikowsky Conservatory in Moscow” as well as in the Philharmonia of St. Petersburg, an honour very rarely bestowed upon a guitarist. Both concerts were sell-outs and received standing ovations. In October 1998 he gave his debut in the “Berliner Philharmonie”.
“About Carlo Marchione I’ve already written all possible good things one can write about him. Also in this concert he has confirmed to us his greatest inspiration and his perfect art of interpretation” (Danielle Ribouillaut, Les Cahiers de la Guitare).
He is a professor at the Conservatory in Maastricht and regularly leads master classes at various European Conservatoires. Leading composers such as A. Carlevaro, C. Domeniconi and John Duarte have been inspired to write pieces for him. Always looking for new ideas for his repertoire, he has discovered almost forgotten compositions which come out like jewels through his genial transcriptions. Highly praised by the press of his editing Violin Fantasies 12 by Georg Philipp Telemann, which is released as a CD and music book.
