Cristina Galietto

An enchanting sensitivity and attention to detail, elegance and technical dynamism, all accompanied by a wide timbral and dynamic palette, are what emerges in her playing and fully captures the audience. 

Cristina Galietto is a classical guitarist from Naples, Italy, whose career has taken her all over Europe for  concerts as well as masterclasses with artists such as Aniello Desiderio or Carlo Marchione. Among the numerous international competitions she has won, a highlight is the Eurostrings competition 2021 which awarded her a tour through Europe, the United States and Asia in 2022/2023. In addition, she won First Prizes at the Rago International Guitar Competition in Stuttgart, the International Competition for Young Guitarists “Andrés Segovia” in Monheim am Rhein and the Uppsala International Guitar Festival competition in Sweden. Cristina has given solo concerts in several European countries, including Germany, Serbia, Romania, Sweden, Slovenia, the UK (at the prestigious Hall One at Kings Place) and Italy. 

She began her musical studies at the age of seven with her father, a guitar teacher, and then attended the Music High School “Margherita di Savoia” in Naples where she studied with Enzo Amat. She completed her studies, with honors and a special mention, at the Conservatory of Music “San Pietro a Majella” of Naples as well as the Conservatory of Music “Domenico Cimarosa” in Avellino in the class of Lucio Matarazzo. She is currently studying with Paolo Pegoraro and Lukasz Kuropaczewski at the “Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst” in Graz, Austria.

Her new album “Avant l’Aube”, released at the end of 2020 (Timespan Recordings), features music by composers such as Joaquín Rodrigo, Domenico Scarlatti and Alexis Rago, all of whom are representative of an intimate, delicate and passionate musical universe.

Cristina is playing a guitar made by master luthier Alessandro Marseglia (Pozzuoli) with a spruce double top andsides and back made in Indian rosewood.
