ABOUT ANIELLO DESIDERIO

The first indication that Aniello Desiderio was headed for musical success came at the age of eight, when he performed in public for the first time. He displayed such outstanding gifts that music critics started to speak of him as an "enfant prodigy," "wunderkind," "a genius," "the Orpheus of the guitar," and "il Fenomeno."

Aniello has won awards in both national and international competitions, including 1st Prize and Special Prize for the best interpretation of South American music at the International Guitar Competition in Havana, Cuba. He performs as a recitalist and soloist with orchestras in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. He has performed regularly in the most important theaters of the world including Carnegie Hall, Munich Philarmonie, Radio France, Istanbul Philarmonie, and Opera House Wien.

In 1999, the German Television BR/ARD produced a music film and a portrait of Mr. Desiderio in Naples, which was broadcast throughout Europe. He also received the "Artist in Residence Award 1999" from the German Radio DLF and the Musikfest Bremen, together with Gidon Kremer.

In fall 2009, he created his latest recording project "Quartetto Furioso" with violinist Gennaro Desiderio, pianist Gaetano Desiderio, and percussionist Salvatore Minale, playing a program consisting of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" and Piazzolla's "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires." They produced a CD for the famous German label Termidor, which includes artists such as Paquito D' Rivera and Sabine Mayer.

Aniello remains in high demand as a teacher, serving as a professor at University of Music in Avellino, Italy. He also gives summer masterclasses at the International Academy for Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria.
