The Bergamo Guitar Trio was established in August 2008 by the musicians Luca Bertocchi, Marco Monzio Compagnoni e Mario Rotadi, who decided to start a new artistict project, driven by the desire to promote a specific repertoire for a guitar trio.
The Bergamo Guitar Trio proposed for several years in a number of gigs a natural pathway consisting of a programme ranging from the baroque period to the present day, including transcriptions from piano operas, from scores for orchestras, and, above all, original pieces
composed for this ensemble. Lately the trio is specialising in contemporary Italian authors, attracting the interest of many musicians who composed pieces for the Bergamo ensemble. The purpose of this album is to record and divulge a large part of this project.
The Bergamo Guitar Trio, who followed master classes held by Giulio Tampalini, in Spring 2009 won valuable awards, including the second prize in the national contests “G. Rospigliosi” in Lamporecchio (Pistoia) and “Ansaldi-Servetti-Tomatis” in Mondovì (Cuneo), and in 2011 obtained the first prize at the “Città di Voghera” contest.

Born in Bergamo in 1971, he was a student of Giorgio Oltremari’s at the “G. Donizetti” Music School in Bergamo, where he obtained his diploma in July 1994. He carried on with his musical activities both in teaching and in performing, participating in national contests and music festivals, where he obtained prestigious awards. He was a tenured member of the “Benvenuto Terzi” guitar orchestra.

Born in 1977, after having obtained a summa cum laude MA degree in Musicology from the University of Pavia in Cremona, he got his diploma in classical guitar in July 2008 from the “Nicolini” conservatory in Piacenza under the guidance of Marco Taio.

He attended Tilman Hoppstock’s and Carlos Bonell’s master classes and in the academic year 2008/09 he attended master classes in concert music at the Academy of Guitar in Brescia, under the guidance of Giulio Tampalini. He is currently approaching the end of a two-year second level guitar course at the “G. Donizetti” Music School in Bergamo, tutored by Luigi Attademo.

Born in Alzano Lombardo in 1979, he obtained his diploma with honours from the “G. Donizetti” Music School in Bergamo, under the guidance of Giorgio Oltremari.

He won several national and international contests, in Varenna, Voghera, Massa, Milano, Lodi, Ancona, Taranto, Savona and Castelfidardo.
