Lorenzo Micheli has taken up a busy concert career throughout the world since winning the first prize in some of the most prestigious international guitar competitions (Alessandria, Guitar Foundation of America). He has played more than 600 concerts all over Europe, in 200 United States and Canadian cities, in Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America, as a soloist and with orchestra. Since 2002, he has been performing worldwide in duo with Matteo Mela – under the name of SoloDuo – in such venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Seoul’s Sejong Hall, Kiev’s Hall of Columns and Vienna’s Konzerthaus. Their duo was welcomed by The Washington Post as “extraordinarily sensitive – nothing less than rapturous”.
Lorenzo’s discography includes more than 20 titles on the labels Naxos, Stradivarius, Pomegranate, Soundset and Amadeus. An active editor and researcher, he has published solo and chamber works with guitar by such composers as Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Ferdinand Rebay. He is in charge of a collection of music for two guitars for the Canadian publisher Les Productions d’Oz.
Lorenzo lives in Milan, Italy, where he studied Greek and Latin literature at the university. He teaches at the University School of Music in Lugano, Switzerland, and he is an artist-in-residence at the University of Colorado Boulder, and Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. In addition, he serves as guest faculty at the Universidad Pedro de Olavide in Sevilla, Spain, and the Conservatorio A. Boito in Parma, Italy.
Lorenzo Micheli will perform at Magda Community Artz on September 29. The gig is presented by Guitar Brisbane, and you can find out more online.
