Francesco Tagliaferri – Guitar and Conductor

Eccentric musician and strongly allergic to labels: his strong point undoubtedly lies in his curiosity. In recent times he dedicates himself mostly to composition, especially in the music scene that gravitates around the Conservatory of Piacenza, but occasionally he performs as classical guitarist and, lately, as conductor. Alongside his artistic activity, he also works in musicology: he has published scientific articles in important magazines, reviews for newspapers and blogs, CD liner notes and hall notes for international festivals. Recently he has collaborated in the re-edition of the album “Musica-Manifesto n. 1” by Luigi Nono for the label Die Schachtel, sponsored by the Luigi Nono Archive and the Archivio Ricordi. His awards include a scholarship from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst and the award for best graduate of the year from the University of Pavia.
