Giovanni Guzzo - Leader Manchester CamerataEarlier this month, Camerata’s exuberant leader, Giovanni Guzzo, and pianist, Marco Fatichenti, played live at the 34th Arts & Business Awards at LSO St Luke’s, London.  

The Arts & Business Awards, in partnership with Jaguar Land Rover, celebrate innovative partnerships between businesses and arts organisations. The winners of this year’s awards were announced on Tuesday 14 May, with many of the shortlisted and winning collaborations coming from the North West.

Linking perfectly to the theme of partnerships, Giovanni and Marco performed two movements from the “F.A.E.” Sonata; a work comprised of three movements, each written by a different composer. The pair performed the two movements by Schumann and Brahms.

Fittingly, Giovanni played the 1709 Stradivarius, on extended loan to Manchester Camerata from arts benefactor and businessman, Jonathan Moulds, President of Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s European business.
