Passionate about chamber music, Giorgio has performed at the prestigious Marlboro Music Festival, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and the Avaloch Farm Music Institute. He has also taken part at the distinguished contemporary festival Milano Musica, where his performances were broadcasted by the premiere Italian classical radio station Rai Radio 3, and with the Juilliard School’s AXIOM and New Juilliard Ensemble.
