Bruno Canino is considered to be one of the greatest chamber musicians and pianists of our time. He studied piano with Vincenzo Vitale and composition with Bruno Bettinelli at the Naples Conservatory. He was immediately spotted at international competitions in Bolzano and Darmstadt, and soon began a long and prosperous concert career around the world in the company of artists, such as Cathy Barberian, Severino Gazzelloni, Salvatore Accardo, and Viktoria Mullova. With great perseverance, he dedicates himself to the modern and contemporary repertoire. Among his more important CDs are Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Casella’s entire piano opus, and first Debussy’s complete piano opus. He taught piano in Milan and at the Hochschule in Bern. For nine years he was also music director of the Youth Orchestra of Genova, and for two years music director of the Venice Biennale.

Luisa Sello is a “lovely mix of extroverted passion and genuine tenderness, with excellent breath control, brilliant technical rendering, engaging intensity, sonorous range and abundance of charm” defined by the New York Concert Review. She performs all over the world. Her biography shows collaborations with names such as Riccardo Muti, Trevor Pinnock, Alirio Diaz, Wiener Symphoniker, Juilliard School, Philippe Entremont, Thailand Symphony Orchestra, Salvatore Sciarrino and Bruno Canino, and performances at prestigious venues such as Teatro alla Scala di Milano, and Carnegie Hall. She was a student of Raymond Guiot in Paris and Severino Gazzelloni at the Chigiana Academy in Siena. She teaches at the Trieste Conservatory, and is a visiting professor at the University of Vienna. As a Flute Miyazawa Artist, she regularly records for Chinese labels Stradivarius and Millennium (Beijing).

British cellist Ariana Kashefi, winner of numerous competitions, has performed at venues such as Wigmore Hall, Pierre Boulez Saal, Berlin Philharmonie, and Royal Festival Hall. She is the recipient of the prestigious Julius Isserlis Scholarship given by the Royal Philhmarmonic Society, a finalist in the Royal Over Seas League competition, an award winner at the International Anton Rubinstein Competition, and Villa Musica Mainz, and a candidate for the Pierre Fournier Award at Wigmore Hall. After graduating with honors from the Royal College of Music in London, where she also received the Anna Shuttleworth Prize, she continued her academic path with a Master’s degree with honors at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin, and an Artist Diploma at Barenboim Said Academy under the direction of Frans Helmerson.
