Take in his versatile artistry as a master of the double bass crossing over from classical to jazz in this unique program. Claudio is a professor at the Rossini Conservatory in Pesaro, Italy.

He was finalist in the 1982 world championships of accordion held in Reggio Emilia. At fourteen years old, he enrolled at Conservatorio “L.

Besides winning multiple competitions and other pianistic events, as both soloist and in a duo with his brother Sandro, he represented Italy at the “XII Concorso Internazionale F. Chopin” of Varsavia, obtaining concert engagements at the Bosendorfer Klavierfabrik in Vienna. Thanks to his intense concert career, both on the piano and the accordion, he has been acclaimed in the most prestigious venue both in Italy and abroad.
