Alberto Mesirca (guitar/theorbo)

The American Record Guide called Italian guitarist Alberto Mesirca’s performance of Scarlatti ‘The best Scarlatti I’ve heard on solo guitar’, while Classical Guitar Magazine commented: ‘Superb recording from the prodigiously talented Mesirca.’ Born in 1984, Alberto studied at the Conservatory of Castelfranco Veneto, before moving on to the Music Academy of Kassel, Germany. He has won the Golden Guitar award three times: for Best Recording (2007, 2013), and for Best Upcoming Artist (2009). In collaboration with Hopkinson Smith and Franco Pavan, Alberto published previously unknown works by Francesco Da Milano preserved in the 1656 Castelfranco Veneto Manuscript (Editions Orphée). The rediscovery inspired Dušan Bogdanović to compose Tre Ricercari sulla Compagna for Alberto, based on a theme of Da Milano. Other pieces composed for Alberto include a piece by Leo Brouwer, premiered at the 2013 Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival. Working with a host of world-class soloists, Alberto has performed on concert stages across Europe and North and South America; he has also collaborated with numerous renowned ensembles. Together with Marc Ribot, he recorded the complete guitar works of the Haitian composer Frantz Casséus.
