Adriana Marconi, guitarist and composer, was born in Pescara in 1978. She graduated with distinction in guitar at the Conservatory “G. B. Pergolesi” of Fermo (Italy).
She won the First Prize in several national and international guitar competitions and went on advanced courses held by Letizia Guerra, Betho Davezac and Massimo Scattolin at the
prestigious Summerakademie Mozarteum in Salzburg. She attended post-graduate studies with Luc Vander Borght, Johan Fostier and Pia Grees at the Conservatoire Royal de Musique of Liège,
where she got the Premier Prix Diploma. In the meantime she widened her theoretical musical knowledge, studying analysis and harmony with the composers Benoît Mernier, Jean-Marie Rens and Marcel Cominotto.
She holds concerts in Italy and abroad both as a soloist and in various chamber ensembles. Together with the violinist Luca Fiordaliso she founded the “Concento duo”, with a repertoire ranging from classical works, transcriptions, arrangements and her own compositions. Besides her performing and teaching activities, she mainly works as a composer: she has written more than seventy pieces both for guitar and for guitar and violin. Supported by very favourable critics, she published books and CDs for guitar, such as Dodici studi semplici (Twelve simple studies), Nove studi sugli intervalli (Nine studies on the intervals), Quattro studi da concerto (Four concert studies) and Cinque studi lirici (Five lyrical studies).
David Russell, whom she dedicated her Cinque studi lirici to, wrote about her music: “Thank you for your beautiful poetic melodies”. Her eclectic personality brings her to move through the arts: drawing, poetry and the practice of various musical instruments, especially on viola. She plays the guitar made by Juan Hernández and a guitar made expressly for her by Daniel Bernaert.
