Biography

Described by the composer/guitarist Leo Brouwer as “…a performer with a very rare combination of energy, expression, and perfect technique”,  Daniela Rossi is an exciting classical guitarist from Bahía Blanca, Argentina, currently based in Cambridge, UK.  She has studied with many leading guitarists and teachers worldwide, including Eduardo Isaac, Paolo Pegoraro, Adriano del Sal, and Graham Devine.

Daniela’s interest in the music of romantic composer Giulio Regondi has resulted in a CD featuring Regondi’s works, including the Ten Etudes. Daniela also enjoys collaborating with contemporary composers, and recently inspired renowned composers to write for her, such as Dusan Bogdanovic, Vincent Lindsey-Clark and Jeffrey McFadden.

Her upcoming projects include concerts in Europe and America as well as two recordings with music for guitar and String Quartet, including premiere recordings and a solo CD Homage to John Duarte.

She has won numerous performance awards and prizes across South America and Europe, including First Prize in the London International Guitar Competition (2015), Second Prize in the Heinsberg Guitar Competition and Festival in Germany (2017), and First Prize in the prestigious XXXVI Luis Sigall International Music Competition held in Viña del Mar, Chile (2009).

“…It was immediately apparent that this performer had great strength of purpose that came from an internal, intuitive understanding of how the most subtle of expressions could be effectively portrayed”. Ely Standard, 2012, UK
