2. Chamber Concert 2021: Luciano Marziali

Kölnischer Kunstverein, Hahnenstraße 6, 50667 Köln

Italian and Spanish guitar music

Luciano Marziali is without a doubt one of the most creative and imaginative classical guitarists of his generation. For more than twenty years he has been delighting his audience with the combination of demanding, classical repertoire with entertaining music, which he always arranges and interprets with skill and virtuosity.

He appears regularly as a soloist and as a member of various chamber music ensembles throughout Europe and is a guest lecturer in several European master classes. In recognition of his outstanding commitment to the promotion of music, he received the Segovia Prize from the Associazione Chitarra Bergamo in 2009.
At the chamber concerts, Luciano Marziali presents a program that focuses almost exclusively on Spanish and Italian music of the 20th century and the composers Benvenuto Terzi, Joaquín Turina and Federico Moreno-Torroba. It impressively shows the artistic and compositional skills with which these masters wrote music that remains rooted in the traditions of their musical culture, yet breaks into a new era and still inspires audiences today in a modern, sensual and sonorous way.
