Description: 

Presented by Friends of Music

Comprised of flautist Rachel Taratoot Ciraldo and guitarist Nicholas Ciraldo, Duo Cintemani is a fun pair of musical talents with a reputation for being distinctive, expressive, and colorful. Early on, the duo were prizewinners at the 2004 National Flute Association Chamber Music Competition and semifinalists at the 2006 Gaettano Zinetti Chamber Music Competition in Italy. They trained with flutist Thomas Robertello; guitarists David Leisner, Eliot Fisk, and Adam Holzman; clarinetist Ethan Sloane; pianist Edward Auer; and the Shanghai String Quartet.

Duo Cintemani has performed at the Hampden-Sydney Music Festival, where the Richmond Times-Dispatch praised them for their “distinctive readings of the music of Astor Piazzolla,” and at the Center for Arts in Natick. The duo has also performed at prestigious festivals and series including the Boston Classical Guitar Society Guitar Festival, FestivalSouth, the Pelican State Chamber Series, the Lamar Chamber Series, the New York Guitar Seminar at Mannes, and several other series across the country.

The musicians have been featured artists at the Simposio Academico de Violão, in Curitiba, Brazil. They have collaborated twice with the Community Partnerships Program of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra and performed for the Austin Classical Guitar Society’s Educational Outreach Program, among other organizations.

Rachel and Nicholas reside in Hattiesburg, Miss.
