Event description

Description

Michele Benuzzi studied harpsichord with Ottavio Dantone and obtained his Performing Diploma at the Royal College of Music in London. He also studied musicology at the University of Pavia.

He attended master classes with Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Andreas Staier, Andrea Marcon, Bob van Asperen, Ketil Haugsand, Jaques Ogg, Jan Whillelm Jansen, Christine Whiffen, and Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini, and was awarded scholarships for three consecutive years by Institución Fernando el Católico of Zaragoza (Spain), where he followed courses on the seventeenth and eighteenth-century Iberian repertoire with Professor J. L. González Uriol.

In 2003 he won the third prize at the seventeenth Yamanashi International Harpsichord Competition in Japan.

He promoted and played with other harpsichordists the opera omnia of Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonatas, performed in France from 1995 to 2002.

He has founded Arcomelo, a group performing seventeenth and eighteenth-century music, and examining baroque music – especially problems concerning the execution on ancient instruments.

With Arcomelo he has recorded the harpsichord concertos by C.Ph.E.Bach for La Bottega Discantica with the CD receiving excellent reviews. In 2007 he recorded the harpsichord concertos and symphonies by W.F.Bach, while he later released a CD with all the Vivaldi’s Flautino and Flauto Concertos with Mitsuko Ota, which had a nomination in the Japanese “The record Geijutsu magazine” (May 2013).

As soloist, he has recorded Scarlatti’s Sonatas using the 1764 Hass instrument of the Russell Collection in Edinburgh, and the CD “Hamburg 1705” with music by Händel, Graupner and Mattheson for the label London Independent Records, using the harpsichord of the Barnes Collection made by Daniel Dulcken around 1730. The label Brilliant Classics has instead released his first CD dedicated to the Fantasias and Sonatas by J.W.Hässler with a 1773 harpsichord by Robert Falkener. The CD won the five-star prize in the magazine “Musica” (July/August 2012).

In 2011 he recorded with Arcomelo a 6 CD box with the six collections of chamber music and solo harpsichord music by J.A.Benda, while in 2014 the complete Ch.Nichelmann Sonatas in a 2 CD set. He has recently recorded the Sonatas by J.Galles and the first four CDs of the complete J.W.Hassler keyboard music using a harpsichord, a Silbermann piano, a clavichord and an original Broadwood square piano dated 1798. The recording won again the five-star prize in “Musica” (March 2018).

This year he will record the complete harpsichord music by J.L.Krebs in five CDs, while his next project will be the recording of the six harpsichord Sonatas by J.E.Altenburg, all the Sonatas by Ch.S.Binder and the “Certamen Musicum” by J.P.Kellner.

Maestro Benuzzi is appreciated for the expressiveness of his performance and for the beautiful quality of his tone production.
