ANDREA BISSOLI  

(b 1982 )

Italian guitarist Andrea Bissoli is the author, artistic director and lead interpreter in “Villa-Lobos: The Guitar Manuscripts”, a ground-breaking international recording project that has won widespread praise in the press. A selection from the tracklist has been played by the BBC, Classic FM, Radio France, Radio y Televisión Española, Rai, ABC and many North American networks.

The Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra also took part in the project, recording the Concerto pour guitare et petit orchestre and the Introdução aos Choros in Belo Horizonte, with Andrea Bissoli in the role of soloist, in 2012, the same year that they won the Carlos Gomes Award for best Brazilian orchestra.

Bissoli gave his first recital at thirteen, performing Villa-Lobos’s Cinq Préludes, and has won awards at several music competitions in his native Italy since then. He later studied with artists of international renown, including Stefano Grondona, Laura Mondiello, Alirio Díaz, Paul Galbraith and Oscar Ghiglia.

In 2006 he started the guitar duo Phèdre Adroit with Federica Artuso. They have studied baroque music with Monica Huggett and Sigiswald Kuijken, and also play nineteenth-century music on two period instruments (‘Petitjean l’aîné’, ‘Lacote’). Their repertoire includes an all-Villa-Lobos programme of unpublished transcriptions for two guitars by Andrea Bissoli.

Bissoli performs regularly as a soloist and chamber musician in Italy as well as abroad. He plays a guitar made by Jacques Vincenti, strung with New Nylgut strings by Aquila Corde Armoniche.
