Originality and experimentation
with other artistic languages mark Classical guitarist Alexandre
Moschella’s style. The Brazilian artist, based in São
Paulo city, plays at the most prestigious concert halls in performances
inspired by contemporaneity, reformulation of traditions and dialogue
with other arts, such as literature and video. Moschella transcends
the old concert ritual, offering new ways of approaching and listening
to live Classical music.
Innovation also shows up in his way of playing:
Moschella is the first Brazilian guitarist to adopt an innovative
posture where the instrument stands vertically, supported by an
end-pin, like that of the cello (view
picture). The posture offers greater freedom of movement,
sonority and expressiveness.
Also graduated in Communications - Journalism,
Moschella coordinates editorial projects in Music and Culture
and and writes articles, interviews and translations for the great
media and specialized publications.
Alexandre Moschella graduated in Music - Classical
Guitar at Santa Marcelina College (São Paulo - Brazil)
in 1996. In the following years, he continued his development
playing at festivals and master-classes with some of the most
acclaimed musicians in the international scene, including Fabio
Zanon, Sergio and Odair Assad, David Russell, Leo Brouwer and
Paul O'Dette. After college, he began advanced studies with the
celebrated Scottish guitarist Paul Galbraith, who would become
his main musical mentor.
