Fabio Sammarco

Fabio Sammarco graduated from the oldest 'Saxophone School' in Italy, the Conservatory of Salerno (class of Luigi Cavallo), completed his two years internship at the Conservatory G. Rossini in Pesaro under the guidance of Federico Mondelci, and continued his studies with Jean-Marie Londeix. After an intense and frantic concert activity (over a dozen of absolute awards) he senses a great deal of neglect in the widespread 'popular-ordinary' treatment of saxophon and in the too widespread use of transcripts. He begins to promote a repertoire that assimilates the instrument to those in more historical legacy (in duo with Cello or Guitar) and from the mid-1990s he stimulated some Italian authors for a production dedicated to him, especially for saxophone and cello and for saxophone and strings quartet. He has never performed public works that were not originals. Fabio Sammarco teaches at the Conservatory of Music N. Piccinn,i in Bari.
