An avid and passionate chamber music player Giuseppina enjoys playing in different ensembles. Listen to the following example from a concert with the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.
Especially dear to Giuseppina is the duo project she created with violin and harp featuring her own exquisite arrangements of Opera Arias. Along with showcasing timeless melodies from some of the most beloved operas, Giuseppina's arrangements expose the listener to the role of the harp in opera repertoire. She explains and guides the listener through the complex and charming dialogue between the voice and the unique timbre of the harp. Giuseppina enjoys performing with different violinists, flutists and other chamber music ensembles in the States and throughout Europe.
