Duo, BANDINI Giampaolo – CHIACCHIARETTA Cesare
The guitar and bandoneon duo, Giampaolo BANDINI – Cesare CHIACCHIARETTA, was founded in 2002 with the precise aim to present the music coming from Argentina through the charm and fascination of its most representative instruments.
Invited by the most important festivals and theatres all over the world, the duo gained everywhere an extraordinary approval of audience and critics. They had the big honour to play the Double Concerto “Hommage a Liegi” by Astor Piazzolla conducted by Maestro Leo Brouwer in Auditorium Paganini of Parma and for Unione Musicale of Turin with the well-known chamber orchestra “I Virtuosi di Mosca”, conducted by Pavel Berman.
In 2004, the duo wins the Award “Beniamino Joppolo” Città di Patti (Messina) for the great artistic values reached in the music field.
In 1995, the duo had its debut in the prestigious Great Hall of San Petersburg Philharmonic, gaining such a big success to be immediately invited the following two years. Their specific feature to live the music with no borders brings them work together with world-known artists and musicians.
Their first CD, “Hombres de Tango” was sold in more than ten thousand copies and has been welcomed with great enthusiasm from the specialized critics.
As teachers, besides being invited by the most famous Academies and Universities, they regularly teach in the Institutes of High Education “Luigi Boccherini” in Lucca and “Tito Schipa” in Lecce and in the summer Festivals of Gubbio and Portogruaro.
