How lucky I consider myself: already at a very young age, I got to learn how to play the piano, and sing. My first serious encounter with Opera, at the Belcanto Festival in Dordrecht, The Netherlands, brings about a turning point; a move to Italy follows, and two master degrees, one with specialisation Opera Buffa.
Concerts and opera roles arrive, such as Ariodante (Handel), Rosina (Rossini), Proserpina (Peri), Sorceress (Purcell), and a CD-recording. I am infinitely grateful to all Maestre and Maestri who taught me so much: Sara Mingardo, Carolyn Watkinson, Ton Koopman, Adelisa Tabiadon, Luca Gorla, Loris Peverada, Bruno de Simone, Deda Cristina Colonna, Mara Galassi, Roberto Balconi.
Children’s and youth’s voices: certainly one of the purest forms of performing music, and something I feel I am preciously connected with. I am author of a classical singing method for children and youth aged 6 years and up. My stage experience and pedagogical work enrich each other.
…Aren’t vulnerability and power both keys to music making? How beautiful!
