Carlo Marchione

Carlo Marchione is a classical guitarist from Italy and was born in Rome, Italy in 1964. He teaches at the Maastricht Academy of Music (Netherland), leading one of the most appreciated guitar classes of Europe.


In the course of his career he has been awarded many top prizes in International competitions (Ancona 1979/80, "L. Legnani" Parma 1981, "M. Giuliani" 1982, "Ville de Sablé" 1985, Gargnano 1989, "N. Paganini" 1991, "Città di Latina" 1992).

He is a regular guest at Festivals throughout Europe (Italy, Spain, France, Holland, England, Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Rumania, Ukraine, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Croatia) appearing both as soloist and with orchestra and various chamber music ensembles.

While touring Russia in 1997 he was invited to perform in the prestigious Main Auditorium of "Tchaikowsky Conservatory in Moscow" as well as in the Philharmonia of St. Petersburg, an honour very rarely bestowed upon a guitarist. Both concerts were sell-outs and received standing ovations. In October 1998 he gave his debut in the "Berliner Philharmonie".

He started taking guitar lessons from the age of 10 with by Master L. Cauzzo, and later on with L. Gallucci. In 1976 he entered the local Conservatorio Santa Cecilia in his native town, passing the entrance exam in 1st place out of 100 applicants. There he studied with Master Mario Gangi, graduating with honours in 1983.

He is a lecturer in the area of guitar music analysis. After having been teaching at the Music Academy "Ino Mirkovic" in Lovran, (Croatia) and being Honorarprofessor at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy", Leipzig, (Germany) he currently leads at the Conservatorium Maastricht, (Netherlands) one of the most successful classes in Europe. Nowadays he is also Guest Professor at the Pôle Superiour d'enseignements artistiques ( apPSEA) at Lille (Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France) and at the Musical Academy "Civica Scuola delle Arti" in Rome (Italy).
