The evening (which will exceptionally take place on Friday, March 3, instead of Sunday evening as usual) is included in the calendar of appointments of “Ivrea, the Italian capital of books”. The seventh edition of the festival will end on Sunday 2 April, again at Teatro Giacosa, with the sixth concert, which will feature the Amatis Trio. These are the coordinates of the appointment: listening guide at 7pm, aperitif at 7.40pm, concert at 8.30pm.
The Tomasi-Musso Guitar Duo was founded by Italian guitarists Davide Giovanni Tomasi and Marco Musso in 2016. Despite their young age they have already performed on three continents: from Japan to Mexico, from Russia to Taiwan, in the United States, in South America and throughout Europe. They have been invited to play as soloists and in duos in halls such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, the International House of Music in Moscow, the Munetsugu Hall in Nagoya and the Conjunto Santander in Guadalajara. They also regularly hold master classes at conservatories and universities in Italy and abroad. Both have received important international awards: in particular, Davide was the winner of the ARD International Music Competition in Munich, one of the most prestigious competitions in the world, while Marco was a scholarship holder of the De Sono Associazione per la Musica from 2013 to 2015. Their musical vision and constant search for new possibilities led them to create an entirely new repertoire for this ensemble, based largely on transcriptions of original piano pieces. This journey gave birth to «Miroirs», their debut album, released by BAM Music International in 2019 and dedicated to the masterpieces of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
Marco Musso, born in Ivrea in 1992, began studying the guitar at the age of eight at the Liceo Musicale of his city as a pupil of Luigi Borio and subsequently enrolled at the Istituto Musicale Pareggiato of Valle d’Aosta where, under the guide by Lorenzo Micheli, he graduated with honors in 2011. He attended masterclasses with the most important masters in the world, from David Russell to Zoran Dukic, from Carlo Marchione to Marcin Dylla, from Judicael Perroy to Matteo Mela. He attended the Conservatory of Italian Switzerland, in the class of Lorenzo Micheli, obtaining the Master of Arts in Music Performance and the Tarrega Academy in Pordenone under the guidance of Paolo Pegoraro and Adriano Del Sal. From September 2015 to 2018 he attended the Kunstuniversität Graz with Carlo Pegoraro. He has won numerous competitions including the national competition «G. Rospigliosi» 2013, the international competition Città di Piombino, the International Guitar Competiton Josè Thomas Villa de Petrer, youth category 2014, the 28th European competition of Moncalieri and the international competition of Versoix.
Davide Tomasi, born in Pavia in 1991, is considered by critics to be one of the most promising Italian guitarists of his generation. At eighteen he obtained in Novara, with Maestro Guido Fichtner, the diploma of the conservatory with honors and top marks. Subsequently he enters as an active student in the course held by Maestro Oscar Ghiglia at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, at the end of which he obtains the Diploma of Merit. He is particularly active in chamber music and performs regularly with major European orchestras. He has received various awards including the first prize at the “Emilio Pujol” International Guitar Competition in Sassari, the first prize and the audience prize at the Viseu International Guitar Competition (Portugal), the first prize at the Groznjan International Guitar Competition (Croatia). In 2011 he won the National Prize of the Arts, awarded by the MIUR to the best instrumentalists of Italian conservatories. Since 2022 he has been teaching guitar at the “Umberto Giordano” Conservatory of Music in Rodi Garganico.
