The DUO ALTERNO, defined by Los Angeles Times “the high theatrics Duo with a strong personality”, by The Washington Post “the duo with a big voice and a fine sense of comedic timing”, by la Repubblica “the duo that gives voice (and piano) to the Italian century”, by the Globe and Mail “the inventive Duo” and by The Indu of Chennai “an electric experience”, was born in Torino (Italy). With its repertoire of all main authors of 20th Century and over than eighty Italian living composers, the DUO is considered one of the most significant reference points in the vocal-piano repertoire of works by composers ranging from the early 20th century to today. Since its debut in Vancouver in 1997 it has kept concerts and master-classes in over than sixty countries. Recordings for Curci (Manzoni, Piacentini), Nuova Era (Alfano, Casella, Ghedini, Malipiero), Stradivarius (six CDs “La voce contemporanea in Italia” with Italian living composers), Urania (Tosti, “The Last Songs” on original Erard piano) document a long activity with alluring reviews. Many composers (including Giacomo Manzoni and Ennio Morricone) have written pieces for soprano Tiziana Scandaletti and pianist-composer Riccardo Piacentini, both of whom are graduated with top marks in History of Music as well as in their respective fields of performance, now professors at Milan Conservatory.
