Maria Vittoria Jedlowski - Claudio Ballabio

Claudio Ballabio
Claudio Ballabio was born in Seveso and graduated in Milan with Antonio Barbieri. He has performed in Italy and given concert tours in Germany, Austria, England, Lebanon and Holland. In 1985 he formed the guitar duo Les Divertissements with Maria Vittoria Jedlowski (CDs Si l'on revait... Sonitus 1992, Dialogo Map 2003, Duende Casa Musicale Eco 2007) and they have often appeared together as soloists in performances of concertos for two guitars and orchestra (for example first performances of the concertos by Francis Kleynjans, John Duarte and Sebastiano Cognolato).
In 2000, 2001 and 2002 Claudio Ballabio and Maria Vittoria Jedlowski toured Italy and Holland with the Naildance Guitar Quartet (CD NaildanceGuitarQuartet, Map 2001) playing music for guitar quartet written by contemporary composers. At the moment he is very much involved in performing a style of music which crosses the frontier between classical and jazz, both in collaboration with the flautist Giuliano Prada in the duo Warp and in collaboration with the jazz guitarist Franco Cerri. He teaches the guitar at the Scuola Musicale di Milano.
