Di Bari – Semerano Piano Duo

Sharing like-minded musical views and a strong commitment to chamber music, pianists Giulia Semerano and Filippo Di Bari perform as a piano duo and are presently working on masterpieces written for this intimate ensemble, as well as lesser known works from the XX and XXI century and collaborations with living composers. After meeting in Italy while studying under the guidance of Sergio De Simone, they pursued further studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, where they are now based. Praised for their intense and engaging performances, and recipients of several prizes and scholarships, Giulia and Filippo regularly perform in important venues across Europe, including St Martin in the Fields, St James Piccadilly, Blackheath Halls, Festival Intersezioni, Artcevia International Art Festival.
