Nazca Duo is a unique chamber ensemble formed by Lucia Foti (harp) and Stefano Fiacco (guitar). Originally from Italy, in 2022, they both graduated with Distinction from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London, which they have represented in several occasions as highlights of the plucked strings department. Nazca Duo performed in a number of famous venues across London (including Wigmore Hall and the Queen’s House) and Northern Italy. In recognition of their outstanding chamber music achievements, they have been awarded the 2022 Colin Blythe Fund. Lucia and Stefano are seeking to discover new works and are committed to make the harp and guitar duo a popular chamber ensemble. Therefore, they are closely working with composers to expand the repertoire for this unconventional instrumental combination. Lucia (1998) is an award-winning harpist, with experience as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player. She is a reserve of the Young Musicians’ Symphony Orchestra and collaborated with Welsh National Opera in 2022. In 2015, she won a first prize scholarship in the prestigious Soroptimist Italia Competition for Young Talents. Stefano (1997) performed with different orchestras as a soloist and was awarded several prizes in national and international competitions. He also played as a lutenist and cellist in different baroque ensembles. He revised the new editions of Leo Brouwer’s transcription of 12 sonatas by Scarlatti and El Decamerón Negro published by Ediciones Espiral Eterna. The name of the ensemble comes from Nazca, a piece by French composer Erik Marchelie. This title refers to the Nazca Lines, located in the Nazca Desert, Peru, a place characterised by a group of mysterious, inexplicable shapes and figures on the soil, which can only be seen from the sky. This image well represents the enigmatic yet distinctive character of Nazca Duo.
