New to Squire Artists: Gioele Muglialdo & Movies in Concert

1 mei 2016


cinemia in concertoAs an eclectic and versatile musician, Gioele Muglialdo has mastered a repertoire ranging from all forms of classical music to musical, film scores, jazz and pop music. A fundamental aspect of his musical career, which in this project is a major factor, is his long-time experience in the particular technique of synchronizing music and images, without any technical equipment.

It places him among the exclusive number of conductors specialized in cine-concert, screening of films with an orchestral accompaniment. Gioele Muglialdo is, at the moment, the only Italian conductor skilled in this repertoire.

His future cine-concert engagements in 2016 include Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights" in the German city of Wolfsburg and his debut at the Monte Carlo Opéra in 2016, at the prestigious Salle Garnier, performing Fritz Lang's masterpiece "Metropolis".


New to Squire Artists:  Amatis Piano Trio

17 april 2016


apt1The career of the Amatis Piano Trio was accellerated by winning The Parkhouse Award in the London Wigmore Hall in 2015. The young musicians of this up-and-coming piano trio could recently add another trophy to their list of prizes by ending first out of the four competing piano trios in the final round of the International Joseph Joachim Chamber Music Competition 2016. This year the Amatis Piano Trio has been nominated for the Amsterdam Grachtenfestival Prize, after winning its Audience Prize in 2014. 


Quartetto di Venezia & Giorgio Cini Foundation

14 april 2016


pr qdvIn collaboration with the Quartetto di Venezia and Asolo Musica, the Giorgio Cini Foundation has organised performances of the complete string quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven in six public concerts in 2016: three in the first semester (23 April, 21 May and 25 June) and three in the second (17 September, 22 October and 16 November). The aim is to offer audiences an exceptional artistic experience in the new auditorium on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, created by the stunning conversion of the Squero, a former boatyard rebuilt on the island during the historic restoration in the 1950s.

The series is also part of the goal to set up a long-term project aimed at creating a permanent series of concerts featuring string quartets. The idea is to hold a series of events with an international appeal involving not only performances but also masterclasses, courses and advanced workshops.


Philharmonie de Paris - Biennale Quatuors à Cordes - Journée d'audition

18 JANUARI 2017


Quatuor Van Kuijk / Piatti QuartetSunday 17th of January 2016 was “Journée d’audition” during the “Biennale de Quatuors à Cordes” in Paris. This year 15 string quartets from America, Asia and Europe presented themselves to the artistic directors of major concert halls and festivals such as Aix-en-Provence, Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Lisbon, Paris, Tokyo, Verbier and Vienna.

The Quatuor Van Kuijk and the Piatti Quartet were two of the quartets taking part.  Even more distinctly than in 2014 the Quatuor Van Kuijk was unanimously highly praised for its rendition of string quartets by Mozart, Debussy and Nishimura (“Pulse of the Lights”). The Piatti Quartet made its début on this stage with compositions by Turnage ("Contusion") and Ravel: “strikingly pure atmosphere, wonderfully accurate ensemble”. 


New to Squire Artists:  Pascal Rogé

18 oktober 2015


Pascal Rogé"... Only elegance, discipline and transparent clarity added light to this concert. Pascal Rogé's phrases breathe, artfully spanning tonal arches from one keystone to the next. None of the pianistic 'thunderers' but a singing architect, feeling, touchting, sparkling - brilliant."

Pascal Rogé on his website, 12 October 2015:
"Exciting news today! Our long-awaited Two-Piano Percussion CD has finally come out! We are very excited about it! We had a wonderful time working on this recording, with our fabulous percussionists Paul Clarvis and Joby Burgess, and our long-time sound-engineer Jean-Claude Gaberel. Program on the CD consists of Ravel Bolero, Bartók Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, and Pulse Magnet by the amazing Australian composer Matthew Hindson".
