Info for #WeAreBrahms
The Brahmsian path of Mattia Zappa and Massimiliano Mainolfi began 25 years ago at the Julliard School in New York. Today, twenty-five years after their first dedicated recording, the great German genius arrives after this close-knit duo has traveled the world playing in the most important concert halls, from Carnagie Hall in New York to the Philharmonie in Berlin. An album to listen to that confirms the great chamber music skills already highlighted in “Silent Wood”, in their debut album on Decca.

Following his Matura and subsequent BA from Lugano Conservatory, and with the support of foundations such as the Migros-Patrons and Pierino Ambrosoli Foundation Zurich, the swiss cellist continued his musical studies in the soloist's class of Harvey Shapiro at the renowned Juilliard School in New York.

There followed a Master for Sonata Repertoire at the Accademia Pianistica Di Imola (Bologna) under the direction of Pier Narciso Masi.
