Soqquadro Italiano is a music ensemble founded in 2011 in Bologna (Italy) by Claudio Borgianni and Vincenzo Capezzuto. The idea behind this project was born from their common interest in Italian artistic, musical and theatrical productions spanning the 16th and 17th centuries.
Regarded as one of the most unique and innovative groups on the current european music scene of the genre Classical Crossover, Soqquadro Italiano is open to all artistic languages (singing, music, dance and visual art)
With a musical repertoire ranging from ancient music to jazz, pop music and elettronic music, Soqquadro is always willing to embrace new creative inspiration, a constant search between past and present to rediscover the uniqueness and the sense of organized disorder that characterizes the word ITALIANO.
Since 2011, Soqquadro Italiano was invited to perform in Belgium, France, Italy, Holland, Spain, Ecuador, for major international events such as: Gent Festival, Operadagen Rotterdam, Ravenna Festival, Festival Barocco di Viterbo, Nomus Festival of Novi Sad, International Festival Bashmet of Yaroslavl, Sochi international Festival in Russia , International Music Festival Teatro Nacional de Sucre Quito (Ecuador) , Ludwisburgers Schlossfestspiele, Händel Festival Halle (Germany)…
Equally original is the recording path.
In 2014 the group released the Numero Zero-QDISC (box with Vinyl + CD) dedicated to the unreleased music of the 17th cen. In 2015 comes out the CD DELUXE Number One – Live, the LIVE recording of the show “From Monteverdi to Mina.”
Soqquadro Italiano has currently in its repertoire the following programs:
Who’s afraid of baroque?, From Monteverdi to Mina, Stabat Mater-Vivaldi project with the choreographies made by the Mauro Bigonzetti (International choreogrpher and formerly director of the Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company) and the collabration with Teatro di Casalmaggiore.
La Stravaganza with the Soloists of Soqquadro Italiano together with the chamber strings orchestra and art videos. The première of this program it was held at the International Winter Festivl in Sochi directed by Yuri Bashmet.
