Improvising classical styles on the guitar: a challenge that Daniele Russo has accepted and successfully conquered, after completing regular guitar studies.
Since his second debut in Milan for the "Società dei Concerti" with a totally based improvisation recital, he regularly performs classical improvisations in Italy and abroad.
Today, he is probably the only guitarist in the world to offer such a recital.
Far from considering it just a sterile intellectual exercise, according to Daniele improvisation is first of all an extremely powerful medium to communicate emotions.
That's why he decided to devote himself to this ancient and intriguing art.
Daniele Russo began to study guitar in the class of Mauro Storti, instructor at Piacenza Conservatory. A few years later he made his debut with the Gioventù Musicale d'Italia, being greeted by public ands critics as one of the best young Italian promises of the guitar.
Later he graduated in only two years at Novara Conservatory, taking a Diploma under the guidance of Roberto da Barp. His instrumental style matured in touch of masters such as Oscar Ghiglia, Alirio Diaz, Guillermo Fierens and Eliot Fisk.
Daniele is a long experienced professional composer of soundtracks and songs too, with a specialization in MIDI technologies and digital simulation of orchestral sounds.
And his artistic experiences are not only related
Needless to say, Daniele Russo considers improvisation
the result of all his artistic experiences.
