Carmelo Giudice was born in Siracusa in 1962 and completed his music studies in Catania with Giuseppe Cultrera at the Istituto Musicale Vincenzo Bellini, obtaining the Pianoforte academical degree with full marks and honourable mention. He specialized with Sergio Perticaroli (Roma), Paul Badura-Skoda (Wien), Dieter Zechlin (Berlin) and Maria Regina Seidlhofer (Wien).
Carmelo mets subsequently with Vera Gornostaeva (Moskva), attending her master-classes. His interest in ancient music induced him to go deep into the study of keyboard-repertoire from XVI to XVIII century on authentic instruments (harpsichord and clavichord), under the guide of Emilia Fadini at the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milano. To this period it is connected a rich series of studies on musicology (on Frescobaldi’s language, on Bach, on executive praxis arising from the XVIII century treatises with experimental applications until Mozart, on XIX Century treatises, and so on), on musical semeiotics, on harpsichord-organology.
Carmelo is first prize winner in several piano competitions. He performs a chamber-music activity in various formations (from violin-duo to piano-quintet); particularly, he collaborates with the Quartetto Bernini from Rome. Since 1985 he is Professor of Pianoforte at the “Istituto Musicale Vincenzo Bellini” in Catania; actually, he is the Principal of the Bellini Institute since 1998. Since 2000 he is a member of the CNAM, the National Council for the high formation in arts and music, an organism which operate in the ambit of the italian MIUR (Ministry of University and Research, Rome). He runs an intense activity in the national and international sphere of the musical education, with particular engagement turned to the preservation and the diffusion of the values of the classical musical culture, as well as to the diffusion of a humanist conception which considers the musical language as a fundamental patrimony of each person and each citizen.
