Composer of Italian origin, Armando Ghidoni brings together in his music the spirits of both Italy and France. In the songs of this eclectic composer we recognize the “Bel Canto” sensitivity and tradition, while his harmonic and rhythmic writing evokes both an impressionism “à la française” and a jazz spirit, features that lend his works a unique and highly personal character.
Armando Ghidoni is intensely active as a composer. His catalogue includes many instrumental scores that are regularly chosen as set prices in leading national and international competitions.
His Jazzy Flute Challenge (in 2014) for flute and piano, Badaluk Concerto (in 2006) for wind quintet and his Adagio for flute and harp (or piano) (in 1996) received an Honorable Mention from the National Flute Association in the USA. And in 2015, his wind quartet “Swinging Counterpoint” received the first award in the category “Chamber Works for Flute and Other Instruments”.
Since 1989, Armando Ghidoni has been published exclusively by Editions Alphonse Leduc in Paris, acquired in 2013 by the Music Sales Group.
