Venezuelan-born violinist Giovanni Guzzo performs regularly in some of the most prestigious venues and festivals worldwide including Wigmore Hall, Lincoln Center, the BBC Proms, and the Salzburg and Verbier Festivals. A protégé of Maurice Hasson, Guzzo studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he was recently appointed as one of the youngest violin professors in the institution’s long history. A keen recitalist and chamber musician, Guzzo has worked closely with influential musicians such as Joshua Bell, Martha Argerich, Martin Fröst, Miklós Perényi, Daniel Hope, Stephen Hough, Mats Lidström, Gerhard Schulz, Gábor Takács-Nagy, and the Maggini and Takács Quartets. This is his SMF recital debut.
