Duo Marchio Art Song recital
Art songs with guitar accompaniment come a long way. An exceptional recital of lovely art songs with guitar accompaniment is awaiting supporters of classical music at the Hugo Lambrechts Auditorium.The Marchios are not only a celebrated duo and soloists – they are also popular teachers at Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre.
Duo Marchio (Marisa, soprano and Uliano, guitar) will perform works by Donizetti, Rossini and Bellini. Marisa explains that originally these art songs by famous opera composers were composed with piano accompaniment. “However, even at that time, it was customary for guitar transcriptions to be made, since the music style of that period ideally suited this instrument.”
Uliano and Marisa met in 1956 and a few years later Cupid sealed the match. They are also acknowledged soloists who honed their skills in Europe, taught at various conservatoires in Italy and were regularly called to adjudicate at international competitions.
Back in Cape Town since 2004, they still perform as a duo and as soloists. They are very happy to be part of the Hugo Lambrechts family and hope to celebrate their golden anniversary in two years’ time.
