Livio Gianola is an Italian composer and virtuoso who made a name for himself internationally both as the master of the 8-string guitar and as the only non-Spaniard to have ever written flamenco music for the Spanish National Ballet.
His unique captivating melodies and refined harmonies aided by a strong classical background have brought him much admiration from the flamenco world’s most important representatives such as Paco de Lucia and Antonio Canales, just to name a few.
In his unmistakable style, he has recorded five CDs as a soloist so far; the most recent one – titled “Ottocorde” – was produced by Cosmopolitana. An eagerly awaited sixth CD containing his groundbreaking composition “Concierto para un alma noble” for guitar and orchestra – again a Cosmopolitana production – will be completed in 2020).
Livio, who has performed at countless prestigious venues on every continent, is one of those rare musicians who can command a stage and spellbind an audience all by himself. He does prefer to perform solo but can also be booked with a group of select musicians (e.g. bandoneon, violin, flute, percussion) and if desired also top-class flamenco dancers.
Cosmopolitana manages Livio Gianola and has been granted exclusivity for his worldwide bookings and productions.
