Founded by pianist Epifanio Comis, the Ensemble Goffriller is made up of musicians who are members of the teaching staff at the Vincenzo Bellini Conservatory in Catania (Sicily). The ensemble blends the pure lyricism of strings with the colour palette of the piano to form an ideal partnership that perfectly reflects all the refined characteristics of the sound of an ensemble of this type. The excellence of the ensemble is guaranteed by the experienced musicians who make it up, all of them prize winners at national and international competitions and trained at the most prestigious Italian music academies such as the Accademia Musicale Chigiania in Siena and the Accademia Walter Stauffer in Cremona, and active in the most important symphony orchestras and chamber orchestras in the country. The ensemble’s flexible line-up allows it to cover a diverse repertoire ranging from the Baroque to the music of the twentieth century. It maintains close contacts with several contemporary composers, whose new works created specifically for the ensemble are an opportunity for it to further refine its distinctive and subtly poetic interpretive conception.
