About Me

Marco Danesi is an Italian clarinetist based in Amsterdam. As a collaborative artist Marco largely performs in different chamber music ensembles, that includes Duo, Trio and Quintet, in the most prestigious venues in Holland. In 2016 Marco founded, together with the Italian pianist Paolo Gorini, Duo Ebano; an eclectic and young chamber music ensemble. The Duo was awarded first prize in many international competitions and was invited to perform in Spiegezaal- Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Muziekgebouw Eindhoven and was hosted in radio programs such as Radio 4 in Vondel CS and AvroTros. In October 2018 Duo Ebano has been selected as one of the finalists for the Dutch Classical Talent tour 2019/20. More recently, in January 2019 Duo Ebano had its debut in the New York Chamber Music Festival.
A member of the Venturis Trio, Marco Danesi was awarded second prize in the Illzach International Chamber Music Competition.
Marco strives consistently to expand his artistic boundaries by exploring new music, blurring genre boundaries, going beyond the conventions of classical performance to connect with audiences and collaborating with living composers. In 2016 Ensemble Resilience was born: a new and visionary project that aims to bring a new concept of sound in the contemporary classical music world.
In December 2017 Marco recorded ‘Neutrinos visiting’, a concerto for clarinet solo and orchestra by the Italian composer Gerardo Gozzi. The collaboration between the two artists started in 2015 in a project based on Messiaen’s ‘Quartet of the end of times’ performed in Lausanne (Switzerland) and recorded at the Royal Academy of music in London.
Teaching plays an important role in Marco's musical activities. He taught for many years to beginners, intermediate and advanced students in private academies and wind bands in Italy. During his staying in New York city he took part in a kindergarten music education program in Harlem.
Marco graduated in Clarinet a the Conservatory Giuseppe Verdi in Milano, having studied with Maestro Sergio Delmastro, and specialized in Bass Clarinet at the J.Horak Academy in Pordenone (IT). In 2013 Marco started the Master of Music with Maestro Charles Neidich at the Juilliard School in New York and in 2016 he got his Master degree at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain...:--)

Bevlogen en deskundig!!

In eerste instantie had ik Marco in zijn Duo Ebano horen spelen en ik was verrast over zijn veelzijdigheid. Zowel het romantische als het hedendaagse repertoire speelt hij schitterend.In de basklarinetlessen krijg ik op enthousiaste wijze feedback op houding en techniek. Door zijn directe manier van reageren heeft dat voor mij meteen effect. En passant vertelt hij veel over de speelwijze en de frasering. Kortom: Marco is een bevlogen en deskundige docent en dat maakt dat ik iedere keer weer met plezier naar de lessen uitkijk.

Klarinetles op maat!

Na 50 jaar wilde ik weer klarinet gaan spelen. Op de lagere school en in mijn tienerjaren heb ik dat met veel plezier gedaan. Een nieuwe klarinet gekocht en na wat omzwervingen en googelen vond ik Marco Danesi. Vanwege de coronamaatregelen hebben we elkaar nog nooit in levende lijve ontmoet. Sinds een jaar heb ik digitaal les van hem. Hoewel live les misschien beter is vind ik dat Marco ongelooflijk goed in staat is om ook digitaal les te geven. Alle afspraken gaan altijd door en het maakt niet uit waar we zijn. De lessen gaan in een relaxte sfeer. Elke les is voor mij iets waar ik naar uit zie!  Hij doet er alles aan om mij te stimuleren (ik zou graag samen spelen op termijn) en te enthousiasmeren. Daarbij is hij heel kundig, ook didactisch, waardoor ik me elke keer weer uitgedaagd voel om mijn technieken te ontwikkelen en tegelijkertijd ook om muzikaal beter te gaan spelen. Overigens speelt hij zelf prachtig klarinet. Ik heb hem daarom ook al bij een aantal vrienden aanbevolen. 

Rehearsing every day!

Marco Danesi is not only a talented clarinet player himself, but a good teacher as well. Learning how to play the clarinet means rehearsing every day over a considerable period of time. Marco gives you the feedback needed to keep you motivated and to avoid developing wrong playing habits. Every lesson is one step further in the right direction. It works fine for me, why don't you try it yourself?
