Giacomo Copiello is an Italian classical guitarist who graduated from the Conservatory of Vicenza under the guidance of Stefano Grondona and Laura Mondiello. Since the beginning of his studies, his musical research has focused on sound quality. Playing modern and historical classical guitars, he investigated the idea of discovering a sound that could go beyond the instrument. Transcribing new music for guitar turned out to be a natural continuation of this intention. In the same way, the 8-string Brahms Guitar came up as a powerful tool to continue this research. For several years Giacomo has been enlarging the repertoire of this particular instrument, arranging new music for it, and collaborating with contemporary composers.
