The Ten Strings Duo

Violinist Marianatalia Ruscica and guitarist Davide Sciacca began their collaboration in 2012. Their intensive work together has led to an extended repertoire of classical works from the early 19th Century including Niccolò Paganini, Mauro Giuliani, Napoleon Coste and Francesco Molino as well as more contemporary pieces by composers such as Astor Piazolla, Maximo Diego Pujol, Celso Machado, Laurent Boutros, Giuseppe Torrisi and Andrea Schiavo.

Marianatalia and Davide won the 1st Prize at the international Giuseppe Ierna competition, and also at the national competitions AMA Calabria, the Citta di Palermo, Alfio Pulvirenti and Magna Grecia.

Last year they performed in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth the Second, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales Charles and the other members of the Royal Family.

Marianatalia and Davide currently teach Violin and Guitar at the Conservatoiri in Caltanissetta,and in High Schools in Sicily.

Since 2014 they are regularly coming to the UK, playing at prestigious venues and appearing in Linda McDermott’s late night show on BBC Radio Merseyside.

Their concerts are always warmly received by audiences and critics alike.
