Music: iPalpiti's De Ascaniis Duo

6 pm | Sun, July 8, 2018
Bing Theater

iPalpiti Soloists Davide de Asciniis, violin, and Sara de Ascaniis, piano, perform Schubert: "Fantasie in C major. D. 934," and Janácek: "Violin Sonata." 

Born in Italy in 1991 to a family of pianists, Davide de Ascaniis's first professional engagement was in 2000 in France, performing Bruch’s concerto with orchestra. De Ascaniis made his United States debut in May 2014 with the Gateway Orchestra. Since then, he has performed at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Kaufman Music Center.

Sara de Ascaniis began to play by ear and improvise on the piano at the age of two. At seven years old she entered the Music Conservatory Arrigo Pedrollo in Vicenza, and two years later she gave her first solo recital. By the time she was eleven, she was already appearing as a soloist with orchestras throughout Italy. Upcoming engagements include concerts in Europe, the United States, and Mexico, also with her brother, Davide de Ascaniis.
