The Lorenzo Perosi Ensemble holds an important position in the Bianchi-Demicheli Duo’s story and in their activity.

The ensemble’s dedication to Lorenzo Perosi derives from an enormous artistic endeavour undertaken under Maestro Arturo Sacchetti’s invitation (who chose Daniela and Marcello as founding and fixed members of the ensemble in 1997), regarding the complete first performance of the composer’s chamber production: 3 trios, 16 string quartets, 4 piano and string quintets, pieces for violin and piano (Tema con variazioni, Piccola Sonata) and for cello and piano (Elegia, Pezzo, Le cinque ore di Londra), included in the Festival Perosiano concert programme from 1997 to 2000 and published on CDs for Bongiovanni records (Bologna).

The “discovery” of Tortona’s priest’s chamber music and his personal vicissitudes connected to his works’ drafting, as well as the chance to examine and study Perosi’s manuscripts, led the Bianchi-Demicheli Duo to an in-depth analysis of Piemonte’s cultivated repertoire that revived valuable unfamous works, and turned them into divulgers of their own local culture around all of Europe.

The Ensemble, with a varying number of members from a trio to a quintet, has enriched their repertoire in time, overcoming the most famous literature for trio, quartet, quintet for piano and for string quartet, adding new particular thematic projects focused on tango and cinema music.
