During his Australian tour Lorenzo will play at the Melbourne Guitar Festival, in Sydney and Brisbane. The concert programs will include music by Nicolò Paganini, Mauro Giuliani, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Alexandre Tansman and André Jolivet. During his tour Lorenzo will also held masterclasses at the Melbourne Guitar Festival, the University of Sydney and at the Magda Community Artz in Brisbane.

lorenzo micheli 1Lorenzo 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 (“M. Pittaluga” in Alessandria and “Guitar Foundation of America”). He has played more than 600 concerts all over Europe, in two hundred US and Canadian cities, in Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America, as a soloist and with orchestras. Since 2002 he has been performing worldwide in duo with Matteo Mela – under the name of “SoloDuo” – in venues such 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”.

His discography (more than 20 titles on the labels Naxos, Stradivarius, Pomegranate, Soundset and Amadeus) includes the music of Dionisio Aguado, the Quartets, op. 19, by François de Fossa, the Sonatas by Viennese composer Ferdinand Rebay, a CD of 17th Century Italian music for baroque guitar, archlute and theorbo, a collection of Arias and Cantatas by Alessandro Scarlatti, the complete guitar Concertos and the 24 Preludes and Fugues for two guitars by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, a double CD of chamber masterpieces by Mauro Giuliani, the complete guitar works of Miguel Llobet, Antoine de Lhoyer’s Duos Concertants, three anthologies of music for two guitars (“Noesis”, “Solaria” and “Metamorphoses”), and the album “Morning in Iowa” (with David Knopfler). His latest recording, “Autumn of the Soul”, was released by Contrastes Records. A very active editor and researcher, he has published solo and chamber works with guitar by composers such 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 Artist in Residence at both the University of Colorado Boulder and Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. In addition, he serves as guest lecturer at the “Universidad Pedro de Olavide” in Sevilla, Spain, and the Conservatorio “A. Boito” in Parma, Italy. &
