Andrea Castelfranato

Guitarist Andrea Castelfranato returns to NativeDSD Music with his second release Duende Live.  The album was made during the Fonè Music Festival Piaggio 2019. The concerts organized by Fonè's Giulio Cesare Ricci were held at the Piaggio Auditorium located inside the famous Museum in Pontedera, the place where Piaggio was born and where it still continues to produce today.

In addition to playing several original compositions, Castelfranato plays favorites including The Pink Panther by Henry Mancini and an unforgettable Medley including Africa from Toto, Billie Jean from Michael Jackson, Staying Alive by the Bee Gees, Can't Take My Eyes Off You made famous by Frankie Valli and O' Sole mio.

On Duende Live, Andrea Castelfranato shows a mastering of the acoustic guitar and nylon guitar that he plays with great technique and great virtuosity. It's a live recording with great pathos in DSD.  Listeners will enjoy Great realism, great dynamics, and great music.  This is an album not to be missed!

Andrea Castelfranato

Andrea discovered his musical influences during many travels through Europe before studying guitar under Giovanni Unterberger at the Lizard di Fiesole Academy. That is where Castelfranato gained the musical farsightedness that led to his outstandingly elegant fingerstyle, following numerous seminars with Biréli Lagrène, John Stowell, and Franco Morone.

Thanks to his high degree of musicality, his charisma, and independence, Castelfranato won the first prize in the new talent category at the 2006 Open Strings Festival in Osnabrück. The broad diversity of his playing is now reflected in his debut album “If …”. Castelfranato offers up a rich roster of classical elegance, a high degree of playing culture, an intuitive sense of melody, and Mediterranean fire.
