Andrea Pace (guitar)

He started his studies in music at the prestigious Arts Academy in Rome under the guidance of Maestro Alessandro De Pau and then, at a very young age, graduated with the highest marks from the Conservatory A.Casella in L’Aquila.
In those years, he also began studying musical composition with Maestro Antonio D’Antò  and won, at the young age of sixteen, a national competition for High School students.
His interest in chamber ensembles with guitar led him to widen his knowledge in chamber music repertoires, under the guidance of Maestro Arturo Tallini, and to explore the many expressions and sounds that a guitar can have.
Very important for his musical studies was his encounter with Maestro Stefano Palamidessi, with whom he attended a three years  course in concert training, specializing with guitarists such as Massimo Delle Cese, Mario D’Agosto, Pavel Steidl, Giampaolo Bandini and Carlo Marchione.  Considered one of the most talented Italians of his generation, he has won many national and international competitions, including  the National Competition “Castrocaro Classica”, reserved to the best graduates of Italian Conservatories where he received great praise from the public and critics.
He has been invited to perform recitals in prestigious concert halls (most  recently the concert at the Theatre “La Fenice” in Venice, dedicated to film soundtracks, with the Symphonic Orchestra of Sofia) and he is regularly a guest at various guitar festivals, playing in Spain, Portugal, Austria and Bulgaria.
Of great importance is his work regarding the recording of film soundtracks. Amongst others, he participated in the making of the film “Bàaria” of Giuseppe Tornatore with music composed by Ennio Morricone and in the new remastering of Charlie Chaplin films with music written by the American composer Timothy Brock.
He has also made recordings for  Rai 1, Rai 3, Sat 2000, la Radio Vaticana, radio RAI International and Rai 3, and has participated in many television shows.
He teaches guitar at ‘Civica Scuola Delle Arti’ in Rome.
