Nicolò Gattoni

Nicolò Gattoni  received his early music instruction at the Claudio Abbado Civic Music School in Milan. There, he studied piano with Angela Lazzaroni, as well as organ and organ composition with Enzo Corti. He pursued his education at the Como Conservatory, graduating in organ and organ composition (with Enrico Viccardi), harpsichord and historical keyboards (with Giovanni Togni), and chamber music (with Paolo Beschi and Federica Valli, cum laude). In 2009, he gained second prize (first not awarded) for basso continuo at the Gianni Gambi harpsichord competition held in Pesaro.
He attended organ, harpsichord and chamber music seminars and masterclasses tutored by leading international masters, including Christopher Stembridge, Enrico Viccardi, Andreas Liebig, Montserrat Torrent, Michael Radulescu, Kenneth Gilbert, Christophe Rousset, Luca Guglielmi, Giovanni Togni, Stefano Montanari, and Alfredo Bernardini. Of particular importance to his training was the participation in the Urbino Early Music courses organized by the Italian Foundation for Early Music.
As organist and continuo player, Nicolò performs with a number of groups. Recent collaborations include baroque orchestra “Accademia dell’Annunciata” (directed by Riccardo Doni), vocal ensembles “Melos” and “Ad Libitum” (Daniela Garghentini), “Concentus Vocum” (Michelangelo Gabbrielli), “Chanson d’Aube” (Alberto Odone), and “Cantando à Prova” (Marco Croci). The latter led to the first worldwide recording of Annibale Zoilo’s “Libro Secondo de Madrigali a quattro et cinque voci” (ed. NodoLibri, Como).
