Versipel New Music is excited to welcome New York City-based guitarist Giacomo Baldelli to open our sixth season on October 15th at Hotel Peter and Paul.
Critically noted as “one of the most complete performers of the new generation”, Baldelli is focused on exploring works of the 20th century, but also on developing a new 21st century repertoire for guitar. Most recently, he has been interested in expanding the contemporary repertoire for electric guitar.
Giacomo Baldelli will perform a concert of modern music for electric guitar, including performances of works by some of today’s leading voices in contemporary music such as French composer Tristain Murail and U.S. composer Eve Beglerian.
Baldelli is an accomplished soloist and chamber musician, and has performed throughout Europe (Italy, Germany, France, England, Czech Republic, Poland), as well as the United States.
He has performed many solo recitals in concert seasons and venues such as L’Ora della Musica, “Compositori a Confronto” Contemporary Music Festival, Aperto Festival in Reggio Emilia (Italy) , Aperitivo a Palazzo Marchi, “Chiostro d’Estate” in Parma (Italy), “Estate a Sei Corde” International Guitar Festival in Brescia (Italy), Bellagio Festival, “Cinque Giornate” Contemporary Music Festival in Milan (Italy), University of Leeds International Concert Series (UK), BUCNM Concert Series in Boston, Alia Musica Festival in Pittsburgh, Compositum Musicae Novae in Miami, National Sawdust and Spectrum in New York (USA).
His critically-acclaimed debut CD “Chitarra Italiana del XXI°Secolo” (Bottega Discantica- 2010) includes the first Italian Recording of the masterpiece for electric guitar “Trash TV Trance” by Fausto Romitelli. His new album “Electric Creatures” was released in Italy on November 30th, 2018 and in the US in Spring 2019.
