“Sweetness and elegance that get to the heart”. These words perfectly describe the way the Italian guitarist and composer Daniele Lazzari expresses himself through music. His talent was recognized first when he won international music competitions at the beginning of his career, as in Padua, Salerno, Lecce and Ancona. In fact, Mr. Lazzari is valued for the freshness of his interpretations which are always meditated and enriched by a brilliant instrumental technique.

Mr. Lazzari has appeared in many prestigius concert venues through Europe and Asia. For instance, he gave concerts at the Festetics Castle in Keszthely, the Pisani Palace in Venice, the Ceramic Palace Concert Hall in Seoul. In 2016 he made his memorable debut at the famous Ferenc Liszt Music Academy in Budapest. His first solo CD, titled “Classical Guitar Jewels” has been acclaimed for the freshness and expressiveness which he has brought in the guitar masterpieces of the 20th century.
VIRTUOSO GUITAR MUSIC OF SPAIN AND LATIN AMERICA is his new solo CD published by the Japanese label DA VINCI CLASSICS in 2018.

Daniele Lazzari has devoted himself to chamber music with numerous projects. Stably he has performed with Italian violinist Varina Fortin, Hungarian flutist Emőke Geszti, Japanese soprano Noriko Ogawa, Korean soprano Eun Kyoung Suh, Italian tenor Giuseppe Coluzzi, Italian guitarist Luca Fabrizio and Hungarian guitarist Annamária Fábián. He has collaborated with the Extol Trio and the Estampas Quartet. Currently he is engaged in a new chamber music project with Italian flutist Claudio Marinone.

The album “Sambossa”, recorded with flautist Mrs. Emőke Geszti, is an homage to the modern South American music. The CD won flattering reviews both by the critics and by the audience after it was introduced in a long concert tour in Switzerland.
Lazzari has dedicated himself to contemporary music performing with large ensembles, often using live electronics and new technologies. He has performed and recorded premiered works by Italian composers at the Biennale in Venice.

Mr. Lazzari has received his Master Degree in Performance with honors at the “Benedetto Marcello” Academy in Venice, Italy and has won a full scholarship from the European Union. His master’s thesis pertains the aesthetics of the guitar music of the mexican composer Manuel Ponce.

He has improved his music skills with masterclasses under the guidance of world renowned artists as Carlo Marchione, Edoardo Catemario, Arturo Tallini, Giuseppe Pepicelli, Michelangelo Severi, Giampaolo Bandini (from Italy), Fabio Zanon, Celso Machado (from Brazil), Zoran Dukic (from Croatia), Sandor Szilvagyi, Jozsef Eotvos (from Hungary), Thomas Müller-Pering (from Germany), Alberto Ponce, Margarita Escarpa (from Spain), Roland Dyens(from France), Sharon Isbin (from USA) and Roberto Aussel (from Argentine).

Daniele Lazzari has taught in Music Schools and Academies in Italy and Hungary and has given masterclasses in Hungary and South Korea. He is Professor at the “Ernő Dohnányi” State Music Institute in Budapest.

As a composer, Daniele Lazzari is especially inspired by the music he loves, alternating contrapuntal writing to the impressionism of the harmonies. His guitar works have attracted the interest and appreciation and were played premiered by renowned musicians all around the world.
Recently, he likes to include in his concert programs his own pieces, always gaining the enthusiasm of the audiences.

A wide selection of Spanish and South American music finds in Daniele Lazzari’s guitar its natural voice. He feels great affinity with Baroque music of Bach, Weiss and Scarlatti but he also seeks to promote contemporary music of emerging composers.
Daniele Lazzari plays an Alma Guitar – Master Double Top – made by Kim Hee Hong in 2007.


“A real monument to this kind of great virtuosity” (Luigi Fertonani, Brescia Oggi)

“Of all these works, Daniele Lazzari offers an objective balanced version, admirably far from the histrionisms and the excessive indulge of the picturesque element which often afflicts these works so much performed and recorded” (Roberto Brusotti, Musica Magazine)

“Finesse and purity of his sound is fully expressed in these masterpieces of the guitar repertoire played with great feeling. Bravissimo!” (Pablo Lentini Riva, concertist and writer, Professor at the “Frédéric Chopin” Academy in Paris)

“Beautiful sound, smooth and always in focus. Everything is meditated, without haste and without unnecessary virtuosity. Bravo, congratulations!” (Giulio Tampalini, world concertist, Professor at the “Antonio Buzzolla” Academy in Adria)

“I really enjoyed his artistry and playing!” (Maestro Gabriel Senanes, conductor and composer in Buenos Aires)

“The world of classical guitar is enriched by talented representatives from all around the world. Daniele Lazzari is one of those!” (Réal Bergeron, reviewer of recordings, Canada)

“He is a very serious and well prepared performer. Beats rhythms precisely phrasing clearly, has good sound, clean technique: everything is fine!” (Maestro Angelo Gilardino, composer and musicologist, Professor at the “Antonio Vivaldi” Academy in Alessandria)

“He introduced in these warm pages of the 20th century music a freshness and expressiveness that I liked” (Florindo Baldissera, concertist, Professor at the “Benedetto Marcello” Academy in Venice)

“A truly wonderful interpretation! He plays with such a sweetness and elegance that get to the heart” (Francesco Di Giovanni, composer at Berben Editions in Rome

“Daniele Lazzari has great curiosity and great modesty which are the precious qualities of an high quality musician. His dedication to the instrument and to the world of ideas places him in a very refined and intelligent compositional dimension”(Maestro Luisa Russo, conductor and composer, Professor at the “Girolamo Frescobaldi” Academy in Ferrara)
