Tina Karen Lo

‘A rare treat to hear a recital by Hong Kong's best known classical guitarist...rhythms and melodies were projected with style...Lo demonstrated her technical skills and her warm tone was well-contoured.’ - South China Morning Post

 

‘…done a great job of promoting and teaching classical guitar and the Spanish school of guitar playing in Hong Kong’ - Pepe Romero, South China Morning Post

 

Tina Karen Lo is regarded as the territory's foremost classical guitarist.  She started lessons with George Sakellariou while she was attending San Domenico School in Marin County, California.  Later, she graduated from the University of Southern California in Music, studying under renowned artists Pepe Romero, Professor James Smith and Tom Gaab.  In 1984, she won the second prize in the American String Teachers' Association Guitar Competition.  Later on, she furthered her studies at the Internationale Summerakadamie Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, the International Summer Academy in Lübeck, Germany, Santiago de Compostela, Spain and at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy .

 

Tina has performed solo recitals in the United States, Spain, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Thailand and Macau.  She has appeared as one of the female artists at the American Guitar Society's 70th Anniversary Series (l994) held in Los Angeles.  Besides being active in the local music circle as a solo recitalist and chamber music player, she has appeared at the Hong Kong Arts Festival, the Gala Concert for the opening of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, and concert at the Government House. Radio broadcasts have included RTHK (Hong Kong) ‘Artist in Residence’ and ‘Live from Studio One’ and KQED (San Francisco).  She has also appeared in television performances on RTHK, TVB and ATV.

Tina's playing can be heard on her CD ‘Songs & Dance Fantasy’ released by Sony Masterworks.

 

Andrea Zanchetta

‘Andrea Zanchetta enchanted the audience with his powerful and sweet tone.’ - IL Mattino (Padova)

 

Andrea Zanchetta was born in Venice, Italy.  Since the age of 15 he has given thousands of concerts performing as a soloist and a chamber musician in Europe, Australia, China and Japan.  He graduated from the State Conservatory of Venice with a high distinction in violin, string quartet and chamber music performance and won prizes in international competitions for violin and chamber music.

 

Zanchetta’s teachers and mentors include the world renowned violin pedagogue Zinaida Gilels, Franco Rossi, cellist of the Quartetto Italiano, pianist Eugenio Bagnoli and Henryk Szeryng.

 

As a soloist and chamber musician Zanchetta enjoyed an extremely busy activity, playing in many prestigious venues like the Tokyo Suntory Hall, Sala Verdi in Milan and others.  Some of these concerts have been broadcast on television channels in Europe and Japan.  In Italy, he had the great privilege to give concerts on a Stradivari violin, the Hembert-Milanollo (1703).

 

His repertoire is markedly broad, ranging from works of the 17th century to contemporary and in recent years he has been focusing on the Italian virtuoso music of the 18th and 19th centuries on both modern and period violin, bringing new life to many works by Vivaldi, Paganini, Tartini, Geminiani and other composers.  His recordings as a soloist and chamber musician can be heard on twelve CDs recorded for Rivoalto and NuovaEra.  He teaches in The University of Hong Kong and in the Hong Kong Baptist University.
