BIOGRAPHY

After completing his studies with top marks in Benevento’s music conservatory under the guidance of M° Pepe, with master classes and clarinet interpretation with M° C. Scarponi, together with an intense concert activity of a classic repertoire in various ensemble, the technical and interpretative qualities of M° Cirigliano have found, also, in contemporary music, an elective artistic dimension where he can express himself. His recitals performed with the entire “family” of the Clarinet, are both fascinating and original. Such a characteristic, the various typology of the instrument, appeared in the first CD Contemporary Clarinet Works (Tactus 2014) - complex work considered as an intriguing exploration in the world of the contemporary “solo clarinet”[…] an artistically remarkable realization (Amadeus 2015)- and now also in the second CD Music for solo Clarinet between the 20th and the 21st Century, a new and awaited project already defined as a suggestive excursus of contemporary music from the last decades for solo clarinet (Tactus, 2019).


His performances have been transmitted by the major Italian radio stations and foreigners specialized in the sector, such as Venice Classic Radio, in which he realized a Brief Introduction to the Listening of Contemporary Music. The reviews in famous magazines of the sector (Musica, Amadeus, Il Manifesto, Rohrblatt, Jazz Italia, official website of R. Cresti) and on specialized sytographies both Italian and foreigners (www.cdclassico.com, Alias, suppl. by Il Manifesto, Music web, The clarinet, official magazine of the International Clarinet Association) expressed significant appreciation of his high level as an interpreter and performer, including him among the best contemporary clarinetists (R. Zecchini, in Musica, 05/2015 n° 84). It is not surprising if contemporary compositors of high fame, composed for him fine pieces of big interest and impact for the clarinet, dedicated not only to his execution technique but also to his outstanding interpretative vis.

The questions regarding the contemporary experimentation conducted on the instrument are topics discussed in the Workshops and Masterclass currently held by the Maestro. He is an awaited guest in numerous festivals and musical fairs in Italy and abroad.
