MIRIAM RIGAMONTI, PIANO
MARIELLA RIGAMONTI, VIOLIN
EMANUELE RIGAMONTI, CELLO
The creation of Trio Rigamonti stemmed from the desire of the three siblings Miriam, Mariella, and Emanuele to dedicate their lives to chamber music and to share with others their sensitivity and their mutual complicity, which goes beyond their professional relationship.
In 2022 the Trio won the second prize (first not assigned) at the Ysaye International Music Competition in Liège (Belgium), performing in the Main Hall of the Université and in the stunning Salle Philharmonique.
Among their most recent national and international recognitions: price as the best italian ensemble at the first edition of Filippo Nicosia International Chamber Music Competition in Faenza, first prize at the Carlo Maria Giulini International Chamber Music Competition 2021 in Bolzano and at the 14° Cameristi dell’Alpe Adria International Chamber Music Competition in Udine.
They were also named Ensemble of the year 2020-2021 for Le Dimore del Quartetto, also receiving a scholarship from Fondazione Morosini of Milano, and received the Young Talent Award 2022 from Universum International Academy Switzerland.
Having been active for more than nine years, they have appeared in various prestigious festivals and concert series, such as Sagra Musicale Umbra and Amici della Musica in Perugia, Società dei Concerti in Trieste, Viotti Festival in Vercelli, Società dei Concerti in Parma, Festival della Piana del Cavaliere, Chamber Music Festival of Rovinj (Croazia), Chamber Music Festival of Lugano (Swiss), Società Umanitaria in Milano, Amici della Musica in Padova, Festival Carniarmonie, Autunno Musicale in Caserta, Musica al Tempio in Milano (where they performed Beethoven Triple Concerto), Teatro Sociale in Como, Conservatorio C. Monteverdi in Bolzano, and Metallener Saal at Wien Musikverein.
The Rigamonti siblings founded the trio in 2012 while studying at the Conservatorio G. Verdi of Como in the class of F. Valli and P. Beschi. They obtained a second-level master’s degree cum laude in Chamber Music at the Conservatorio A. Boito of Parma, under the guidance of Trio di Parma and P. Maurizzi.
In 2020 they were accepted at the Stauffer Center for Strings, in the class of the Quartetto di Cremona. There, they had the chance to perform Schubert’s Trio op. 100 for A. Brendel.
They attended masterclasses and lessons with many outstanding musical personalities, like J. Meissl (Vienna Artis Quartet), Atos Trio, L. Hagen (Hagen Quartet), K. Zlotnikov (Jerusalem Quartet), D. Waskiewicz (Prometeo Quartet), A. Lucchesini, A. Valentino, M. Mika, I. Zats and Y. Savary.
Recently, they have been recently appointed “aspiring ensemble” at the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA).
Mariella and Emanuele play two Italian instruments from the beginning of the twentieth century: a G. Pedrazzini violin and G. Sgarabotto cello.
