Award-winning Italian concert performer Andrea Dieci is without doubt one of the world's finest classical guitarists. A multiple international prize-winner, he has also attended masterclasses with such names as Julian Bream and was described in the New York Times Herald as "an impressive guitarist".
He has performed extensively for prestigious music societies and festivals worldwide, with appearances across Europe, in the USA, and Central and South America, Africa and Asia. Credits include the Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds, the Festival of the Guitar Foundation of America, and the Singapore International Festival, and festivals in Athens, Istanbul, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Milan, and Tokyo - among others.
He has premiered several works composed for him by contemporary composers (including Cornwall's own Ben Salfield) and his performances have been broadcast by major radio and television companies throughout Europe. Vatican Radio recently broadcast a series of programmes dedicated to him.
Andrea Dieci has recorded CDs for MAP, Nuova Era, Bèrben, DotGuitar and Brilliant Classics. He is the only guitarist to have recorded the complete works for solo guitar of Heitor Villa-Lobos, Toru Takemitsu (awarded the “Golden Guitar” 2005 at the X International Guitar Congress of Alessandria as the best CD of the year) and Hans Werner Henze.
In addition to being in demand as a performer, Dieci is also a renowned teacher. He has presented masterclasses at important music institutions in Italy, France, Switzerland, Spain, United Kingdom, Poland, Greece, Bulgaria, Brazil, Mexico, USA, Singapore and Japan. He is currently based at the Vecchi Conservatoire in Modena, also teaching yearly masterclasses at the Regondi Guitar Academy in Milan.
