Suono Italiano 2019 // Eugenio Della Chiara - classical guitar



Suono Italiano 2019 // Eugenio Della Chiara - classical guitar

Born in Pesaro, Italy, at the age of nineteen Eugenio Della Chiara graduated with top marks and honours at the Conservatoire of his home town, under the direction of Giuseppe Ficara. Among his Maestros were Piero Bonaguri, Andrea Dieci and Oscar Ghiglia, with whom he studied at the Chigiana Academy of Siena. Among the prizes he received are two scholarships granted by the “Fondazione Rossini”, which he won in 2008 and 2010. In parallel with his musical studies, he completed his education in humanities at the Università Cattolica of Milan, obtaining a degree in Classical Studies first, and in Modern Philology later on.
His many concerts have allowed him to play in Japan, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Spain and Norway. In Italy, he has performed solo recitals for some of the main musical institutions in the country, including the Rossini Opera Festival, the Società del Quartetto of Milano and Bergamo, the Orchestra Sinfonica Giuseppe Verdi of Milano, the Società dei Concerti of Parma and the “Angelo Mariani” Association of Ravenna. He has also been guest artist of the Italian Cultural Institutes in Vienna, Istanbul, Oslo Tokyo and Budapest.
Since 2018, he has been a DECCA artist: for the English label, he has recorded Guitarra Clásica – an anthology of some rare guitar transcriptions from Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven – and Paganini Live, an EP live recorded with Piercarlo Sacco. Before that – between 2012 and 2016 – he recorded tre CDs for Discantica and Phoenix Classics.
A passionate chamber musician, he collaborates with violinist Piercarlo Sacco, with guitarist Andrea Dieci and with pianists Alberto Chines. His interest in vocalism and musical theatre allows him to frequently collaborate with opera singers, above all with tenors Juan Francisco Gatell and Mert Süngü. Together with Alessio Boni, he has staged Tutto il resto è silenzio, a reading from Shakespeare’s Hamlet accompanied by seventeenth-century English music.
He assiduously collaborates with composers belonging to different generations such as Carlo Galante, Orazio Sciortino, Paolo Ugoletti and Davide Anzaghi. He has several first-ever recordings at his credit, among which the Sonata per chitarra composed by Luciano Chailly in 1976.
Since 2015, he is the artistic director of “MU.N - Music Notes in Pesaro”, a chamber music season organized by the Associazione Marchigiana Attività Teatrali; since 2017, he is teaching at the “O. Respighi” Conservatoire of Latina, seat of Gaeta. He plays a 1935 Domingo Esteso and a 2009 Masaki Sakurai.

Eugenio Della Chiara's programme for his performance at the IIC of Dublin includes Paganini, Rossini, Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Scarlatti.
