one of the most interesting guitarist of his generation, Claudio Marcotulli
has a profile of highly artistic relevance that captures both audiences
and critics worldwide.
During the formative years, studying under M. Ialenti and M. Severi, he showed brilliant technique and strong musical qualities, winning the favour of audiences and juries in many national young musician competitions.
He obtained his Diploma with Highest Honours from the L. Cherubini Conservatory in Florence under the guidance of Alfonso Borghese; further studies included the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris with Alberto Ponce, where in 1983 he was given the Licence Superieure dExecution Musicale and the following year the Diplome Superieure de Concertiste with special mention from the President of the jury, Alexandre Lagoya.
Along with the Ecole Normale, Claudio Marcotulli has followed intensive courses with artists of international calibre such as A. Diaz, A. Lauro, J. Williams and has taken part in important international competitions, winning in 1981 the Concorso Città di Lecce, Italy, devoted to contemporary music, the Ville de Carpentras competition in 1983 and the R. Bratoli in Salon de Provence in 1984, both of which in France. Of utmost importance for his professional career was the First Prize in the F. Tarrega competition in Benicasim, Spain, one of the most important guitar competitions in the world, including the special prize for Best performance of Tarregas music. Thanks to this award he has been engaged in worldwide tours and recordings that launched his career to the highest level.
