Paola Debora studied under the guidance of Lidia Arcuri at the N. Paganini Conservatory of Genoa. Subsequently, they went on to train with Alfons Kontarsky at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Dario de Rosa and Maureen Jones at Fiesole Music School and Katia Labeque at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena. After their debut at the Sydney Conservatory and at the historical Rachmaninoff Hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, they began their career by touring the world and playing for the most important national and international festivals and associations.

Their professional accomplishments include collaborations with various contemporary composers (who have also written works for them) such as Hugues Dufourt, Azio Corghi, Francesco Antonioni and Michele dallOngaro. Involved as well in the jazz music scene, they have performed the music of Stefano Bollani, Uri Caine and Giorgio Gaslini. The groups that they regularly collaborate with are the Naqqara Ensemble and the Mascoulisse Quartet. Paola and Debora love to be involved with the theater. With Bustric (Sergio Bini), they collaborated together on different shows such as Nuvolo e Musica, Varieté degli animali, Il Magico piccolo Principe and Pinocchio. With Guido Barbieri, they created the show Ottanta which debuted in the Gog season 2017/18.

They have also held numerous concerts for Rai (Radio 3 Suite, I concerts at the Quirinale). They recorded for Dynamic Music, compositions of the twentieth century obtaining awards at the most prestigious music magazines, while for Amadeus they recorded the concerto for two pianos and orchestra by F. Poulenc. In 2016, Continuo Records published the CD Between Earth and Heaven with music by Aurelio Canonici and in June 2017, Suonare News (in collaboration with Cidim) released their latest CD with music by Mozart/Grieg, Debussy, Ravel, and Gershwin. This work shares the search for a connection of peace for future civilizations expressed by the Third Paradise of Michelangelo Pistoletto, whose symbol is shown on the cover.

Brandenburg Regional Tour Notturno

Brandenburg 2018 Regional Tour | Notturno: Music Before The Still Of Night

The musicians of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra are world leaders in the performance of music from the baroque era. Known for their vibrant and dynamic performances, they give 21st-century life to centuries-old music, playing period instruments just like the composers intended for their masterpieces. The violinists and cellists, for example, use strings made of sheep gut rather than the steel strings you would hear a modern orchestra play on.

You can join the members of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra in Orange on Monday 22 October 2018 for an evocative exploration of vibrant gems from the Classical and Romantic periods.

This dreamy musical program has been curated by the Brandenburg’s principal flute player, Melissa Farrow and feature works by Boccherini, Mozart and more. The unusual combination of guitar, flute and strings provides a blend with a decidedly exotic flavour and we can assure it’s an event not to be missed!
