CONTEMPORARY MUSIC





Paolo Marchettini, Daniele Carnini, Giorgio Astrei, Francesco Fournier Facio, Massimo Munari, Omer Barash, Eliza Brown, Caterina Di Cecca, and David Collins, have written music for Ardorè Duo.

Almost every concert, Ardorè Duo premieres a new piece. Most of them are especially written for and dedicated to the duo.

MODERN MUSIC





VINCENZO AUGUSTO MANNO

Ardorè Duo pays a great attention to the the Italian composers of the beginning of 20th Century. In collaboration with the Manno family, in 2015 released the recordings of Vincenzo Augusto Manno’s Works for violin and piano.






RICCARDO MALIPIERO

Ardorè Duo, as a part of the Rest Ensemble, is workin on the rediscovery and valorization of Riccardo Malipiero’s chamber music. Thanks to the collaboration with Suvini Zerboni, the duo is proposing Riccardo Malipiero Violin Sonata (1956) in the most important venues and festivals.


The aim of this project is to create a CD with the UK based label “Toccata Classics”, entirely dedicated to Riccardo Malipiero.






CLASSICAL MUSIC





Interpretation
Ardorè Duo’s approach to classical music is fresh and deep at the same time. Even the most traditional repertoire pieces were once contemporary: this is what guide us to avoid any convention, in the respect for philology and aesthetic.

In this video Mozart Violin Sonata in e minor.




Ardorè Duo plays with passion and commitment. In this video Respighi Violin Sonata is played in the Music Hall of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.




The lyric 2nd movement of Grieg Violin Sonata No. 3 is played on a Nicolò Amati violin (ex Collin 1669), at the Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi in Cremona.

Tutto viene avvolto
da quel momento di sospensione
quando la parola si ferma sulla soglia
senza che neanche un raggio la contamini.
