Paolo Russo bandoneon

PAOLO RUSSO - pianist, bandoneonist and composer

Welcome to Paolo Russo’s unique music universe: a journey across Italian flavours, classical tones, Nordic landscapes, free improvisations, with a distant echo of Argentinean tango.

Born in Pescara (Italy) in 1969, he lives in Copenhagen (Denmark) since 1996. He started his studies with the cembalist Chiara Tiboni and graduated at “Conservatorio L. D’Annunzio” in Pescara, in 1993 (teacher: Rachele Marchegiani). In 2002, he graduated at the prestigious Rytmisk Musikkonservatorium in Copenhagen. During the past 21 years, he developed a very intense music activity, with performances all around Europe, as well as Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Japan, Faroe Islands, Thailand, Tanzania, Mozambique, Algeria, Russia, USA, Greenland and Cuba. He studied in New York with Richie Beirach (1995) and in Buenos Aires with Néstor Marconi (2004/2013).

”The musical proposal offered by Paolo Russo is a work worthy of consideration for its powerful melodic, harmonic and contrapuntal content. The bars marked by constant variations and strong avant-garde ideas testify that this work is not only a valuable contribution to the in-depth study of the instrument, but also a challenge for the professional bandoneon player, because of his technical difficulties”. 

Thank you, maestro Paolo Russo, for your dedication and passionate love to bandoneon, which you give us in each of your works.”

 Néstor Marconi
