Audentia Ensemble Updates
On September 20th 2019, Audentia hosted conductors Ryan Bair and Constantin Riccardi and joined forces with guitar soloists Vitor Noah and Giacomo Susani for a night of two brand new guitar concerto premieres written by Rafael Marino Arcaro and Giacomo Susani at The Royal Academy of Music. The concert was a great success, being hailed as "Two Superb, Ground Breaking Guitar Concerto Premieres."
On October 5th 2019, Ryan Bair lead a recording session of Marino Arcaro's Concerto Apinayé with Vitor Noah.
Recently, Audentia has joined forces with Dimitris Soukaras and Iasonas Maroulis with many projects in the future. These include a concert and recording of Piazzolla's double concerto conducted by Luca Gliozzi, and a world premiere concert and recording for Naxos of Theódoros Andoníou's Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra conducted by Ryan Bair. Audentia will also record and give the world premiere of Iasonas Maroulis' Allegory of the Great Obligation for Guitar and Large Ensemble conducted by Ryan Bair.
After another successful concert at St Marks Hamilton Terrace conducted by Luca Gliozzi, Audentia is now focusing on recording projects until our next Beethoven Symphony Cycle concert. Upcoming recording projects include composer in residence Iason Maroulis's Thaleron Chimera, Bach Concerto for Violin and Oboe BWV 1060 (Soloists- Rodrigo Checa and Ignacio Cano), and Schnittke's Concerto Grosso No. 1 (Soloists- Rodrigo Checa, Gabriel Bilbao, Luca Gliozzi) conducted by Ryan Bair. The Schnittke Concerto Grosso No. 1 will be paired with Beethoven's 4th Symphony in concert in continuance of Audentia's Beethoven Symphony Cycle.
Audentia Ensemble's Beethoven Cycle
To honor Ludwig Van Beethoven's 250th birthday, Ryan Bair and Luca Gliozzi lead an ambitious project to perform all nine Beethoven Symphonies with their newly founded Audentia Ensemble. Alongside these Beethoven Symphonies Audentia plans to explore contemporary repertoire, world premieres, and old classics. Our ensemble of incredibly talented musicians from all across the world come together to perform these exciting programs in a friendly and welcoming environment. We hope you will join us at any of our upcoming events.
