Introducing Gianluca Margheri

Gianluca Margheri
First, we appreciated all of the nice emails about John Cage's . Unfortunately, it is not better known, but it is a beautiful piece of music and it was our pleasure to introduce it to many of you. Today we'd like to switch gears from dead composers back to hunky baritones and introduce you to Italian Gianluca Margheri.

Gianluca Margheri was born in Florence, where he also studied at the Coservatorio Cherubini. He made his professional debut in 2004 at the Teatro Verdi in Pisa in Traviata, followed by Demetrius in Briten's "Midsummer Night's Dream."  In 2009 he won the first prize with at the international Opera Competition Toti dal Monte in Treviso. He has performed in Mozart's Don Giovanni, Le nozze di Figaro and Cosi fan tutte. He can also be found on the recording of Handel's "Deidamia" and on the DVD of Respighi's "La bella dormente nel bosco."

Here is Gianluca Marrgheri singing Franz Schubert's "Traditor deluso" in 2008:

For the next two weeks we will be accepting submissions for our first  Barihunks charity calendar, which will benefit young artist programs.  Send High Res photos and a brief bio to Barihunks@gmail.com

  1. Greetings to this great blog. I am a truly fan!

    Regarding this post, I make you just a remark regarding the photos of barihunk Gianluca Margheri. The face picture next to the right is not Margheri, but the picture of Tiziano Ferro, an Italian pop singer and composer, who lived and began his career here in Mexico.

    Congratulations again for this opera effort and warm hugs.
