© 2021 by Duo InContra

Camilla Patria and Tommaso Fiorini met in 2018 during the annual courses of Obiettivo Orchestra in the APM School of Saluzzo, held by the orchestra teachers of the Filarmonica Teatro Regio Torino. They immediately find a great musical understanding and the desire of making music together, not only in the orchestras.

So they decide to put together a duo and start exploring the repertoire for this unusual group, starting from the most famous piece, Gioachino Rossini’s Duet.

From here the repertoire became quickly wider, including all the ages and styles that involved this kind of Duo.

The Duo improved itself at Turin Conservatoire, during the 2 years of Ensemble Music under the mentor Professor Claudia Ravetto, graduating with full marks and honors.

In November 2020 they won the 1st Prize Overall for Chamber Music section at “Premio Crescendo - XI edition” by A.Gi.Mus of Florence, Italy.

In June 2021 they got the First Prize at the 22nd Music Competition “Premio Placido Mandanici”, also obtaining the “Michele Giamboi Special Prize” for giving "greater proof of interpretative sensitivity and dedication to musical art".

In september 2021 they won the First Prize at MAP International Music Competition (Los Angeles, USA) for the category Chamber Music - Duo.

Since 2021, they become parte of the Nuovo Insieme Strumentale Italiano Association, within which they coordinate the artistic direction of the festival Panorami sonori and the Youth Project of the festival Suoni in movimento.

The ensemble boasts the dedication of compositions conceived for them: "Gravity" by Sandro Montalto, written in 2019 and published in 2020 by Da Vinci Edition, "Drama" by Elena Ballario, completed in January 2021, “Commedia della sera” by Giorgio Colombo Taccani, finished in July 2021.
