Mattina presto; Shirok; Sweet Argentina

The guitar’s repertory is now widely varied and includes works that cover, in historical periods, all technical and interpretative aspects, from the single instrument to the guitar orchestra, passing to the duo, the quartet and the ensemble.
What I thought to be important was a work that would include a “comparison” between the instruments, a dialog in which music flows between the instruments in a harmonized way, with moments of hard work and others of listening, almost to underline the friendship and the collaboration between the players… it is in that way that these songs of middle difficulty are developed, where the components of the orchestra not only have their part to play, they must also pay attention to the solo guitar playing the theme in counterpoint to themselves.
The three compositions presented are of different inspiration: Mattina Presto is the awakening of the day, clear, as a spring morning. It’s the easiest song, with it’s simple melody that flits among the voices in the group; Scirok (Scirocco in Albanese) contains a theme inspired by balcanic music, signifying the interest of entering other populations to better understand their culture, as in Sweet Argentina, that begins with a “tanguero” rhythm, passing then to a slower and more delicate melody and by the end returning to the original popular danced rhythm.
Three pieces in which I hope the “game” will not only help those who play to grow musically, but will also spark a culture interest, music born by the love for the instrument and the world that surrounds me.
(G. Signorile)
Born in 1962 in Cuneo, Giorgio Signorile began studying guitar at the local Conservatory, first with Pino Briasco and later with Paul Manzo, graduating in 1986 with honors. He subsequently worked with Betho Davezac and Leo Brouwer and started appearing as a soloist and in chamber music groups. During this period he was particularly dedicated to contemporary music performing with L'Assieme Chitarristico Italiano and recording two CDs on the Dynamic and l'Olandese Etcetera labels.
Inspired by his travels, he began composing for guitar. After a success at the composition competition "Suoni Nuovi 2007", he began collaborations with publishers such as Zedde, Sinfonica and especially Ut Orpheus creating music, both educational and professional in nature, for solo guitar and flute/guitar duo. His works have been performed in recent times by several well-known artists and ensembles - Giulio Tampalini (Strong emotions), Lucio Matarazzo (LM and friends) and Giorgio Mirto (Notturni).
His most recent CD ‘Reflessi’ (Reflections), produced by CNI Music in Rome, is a collection of works for solo guitar published in recent years by Ut Orpheus.
Since 2013 he has served as an official endorser for Aquila Corde Armoniche.
He considers teaching an important part of his work as a musician, a comparison between two realities, a dialogue where respect and knowledge are exchanged and interact, creating culture, risk, interest and mutual growth.
