Monica Leone &

Michele Campanella

piano duo

The most surprising thing about the Leone-Campanella concert is not so much the quality – even if excellent – of the performance offered by this famous couple of musicians, as the interest and originality of the programme.

The piano duo formed by Monica Leone and Michele Campanella has no official date of birth, being the natural development of the practice to play together between teacher and student before, between partners in music and in life then. It has been the result of a mentality and a shared approach to the piano from the beginning, both being inherited, at different times, to the principles of the school of Vincenzo Vitale. 

The ever-expanding repertoire includes four hands and two pianos music, ranging from Bach to Bartok. To be underlined: the great project in the making of the integral of Schubert’s music for four hands on a CD. The duo performed a significant number of concerts, in the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, the Sydney Opera House, the Coliseum in Buenos Aires, Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, from the Settimana Musicale Senese to the Sagra Umbra, the Teatro San Carlo in Naples, with the Orchestra of Tuscany in Florence, Chamber Orchestra of Padua and Veneto, Orchestra dei Pomeriggi Musicali in Milan, Istituzione Universitaria dei Concerti in Rome, the Teatro Massimo of Palermo, the Rossini Opera Festival, Auckland in New Zealand, Melbourne and Brisbane in Australia. 

Recently they performed at the “Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica” in Rome (Palazzo Poli – Sala Dante), the Diana Theatre in Naples and at the Festival Spinacorona.

After several years teaching at the Università Suor Orsola Benincasa in Naples, Monica Leone and Michele Campanella are piano teachers at the Henze School in Montepulciano, hosted by the Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte.
