Decca recording artists Giampaolo Bandini (classical guitar) and Cesare Chiacchiaretta (bandoneon) duo, currently celebrate their 18th year anniversary of music making and deep commitment to present Argentina’s music through the charm and magic of its most representative instruments. The duo immediately became an important point of reference in the international concert circuit thanks to their great communication style coupled with an extraordinary stage charisma. Regularly invited by the festivals and theatres around the world, they have toured over 50 countries and have annual or biannual tours to the United States and Canada, receiving outstanding critical and audience approval.
The duo had the privilege to play Astor Piazzolla’s Double Concerto “Hommage a Liegi” conducted by Maestro Leo Brouwer at the Auditorium Paganini of Parma and for the Unione Musicale of Turin with the renowned Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra conducted by Pavel Berman. Mo. Brouwer wrote and dedicated a new work on the folia theme to the duo in 2017. They are frequently invited to perform as soloists with orchestras and recent invitations include Baden-Baden Philharmonic Orchestra (Germany), Brno Soloists (Czech Republic), the Camerata Santiago de Querétaro and Silvestre Revueltas Orchestra (Mexico), the Round Top Chamber Orchestra and Brazos Valley Symphony (USA), the Asian-European Symphony Orchestra (Korea), and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Kiev (Ukraine) among others.
In 2004, Bandini-Chiacchiaretta Duo was awarded the 15th “Beniamino Joppolo” Città di Patti Prize (in the province of Messina, Italy) for remarkable artistic achievements in the field of music. In 2005, the duo made their debut in the prestigious Grand Hall of Saint Petersburg Academic Philharmonic achieving such great success that they were immediately asked to play for the following years. Important composers have written original compositions for Bandini-Chiacchiaretta Duo, among them Daniel Binelli, Fernando Tavolaro, and Maximo Diego Pujol, who dedicated the Double Concert for guitar, bandoneon, and orchestra “Luminosa Buenos Aires” (2009) to them. The duo recorded the work and it is distributed all over the world through the Concerto label.
