BIOGRAPHY

The piano-duo ANNA ALLEVI-STEFANO GUIDI was born in 1986 during a course of pianistic improvement held by Hanna Lachertowa of the Superior School of Music in Warsaw.

The duo has played in important concert-halls both in Italy and in foreign countries, always getting positive appreciations by critics and public.

They have taken part in important national and international piano competitions, always getting important recognitions, among those the Second Award at the National Piano Competition "Rome 1989" (First Prize not awarded), the Second Award at the International Piano-Competition "Rovere d’oro" in S.Bartolomeo in 1990 and the Second Award at the International Piano-competition "R.Schumann" in Macugnaga in 1991( First Prize not awarded).

They have been reported as the best duo in the course of improvement held by Luciano Lanfranchi. They have taken part to the exceptional workshop about the two pianos and four hands literature, held by Alessandro Specchi during the Piano Master 89, and, thanks to their merit, they obtained the award of a concert within the musical review itself.

The duo ALLEVI-GUIDI has performed the rare piano concert for four hands and orchestra by L.Kozeluh as soloists, with the Orchestra Camerata Filarmonica of Bologna University; this experience has been repeated with Orchestra Filarmonica of Craiova (Romania) and Virtuous of Bacau directed by Ovidiu Bàlan.

They have attended a specific improvement course on four hands-piano in the prestigious Musical Academy in Pescara, getting the diploma of merit.

The duo is protagonist of a tour in the Czech Republic, playing concerts in the cities of Praga, in the Hall of Concerts of the Italian Embassy, and Karlovy Vary, at the Theater A.Dvorak.

On August 2007 was published their CD "Ciak… si suona!", arrangements for four hands piano of well-known soundtracks carefully re- elaborated by the two artists.
