Francesco Barone

Award winning guitarist Francesco Barone has performed throughout the United States as a soloist and chamber musician. He has been presented at guitar festivals and societies including The Hartt School Guitar Festival, the Connecticut Guitar Society, and the New England Guitar Society.  Francesco was also included on a La Bella Strings sponsored concert in 2011 in which he was a featured artist. His performances have been broadcasted on National Public Radio.  
 
In addition to traditional venues, Francesco interacts with local communities and regularly performs outreach concerts at town libraries throughout New England.  He also connects with younger audiences by giving house concerts nationally through the classical music startup Groupmuse.
 
Francesco is an avid perform of, and has contributed scholarship to the music of Nikita Koshkin.  His doctoral essay, A Structural Analysis of the Second Movement of Nikita Koshkin’s Sonata for Flute and Guitar was the first to analyze Koshkin’s music and discuss one of the composer’s chamber works.  In 2015 Francesco presented, Nikita Koshkin: Three Compositional Styles for Flute and Guitar That are Unique Yet All Intrinsically Russian, a lecture recital that explored the varied styles of Koshkin’s chamber music. 
 
Francesco received a Doctorate of Musical Arts and Master of Music from The Hartt School, University of Hartford where he studied with Professor Emeritus of Guitar Richard Provost.  At Hartt Francesco was awarded the Graduate Teaching Fellowship in Guitar, and performed with the prestigious 20/20 honors chamber ensemble.  In addition, he holds a Bachelor of Music from Temple University where he studied with guitarist/composer Allen Krantz.  While at Temple, Francesco performed with the Temple University Opera in the award-winning production of Verdi’s Falstaff, and was a prizewinner in the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society Guitar Competition.
 
Francesco has performed in numerous masterclasses with some of the world’s leading guitarists including Manuel Barrueco, Jason Vieaux, Oscar Ghiglia, Scott Tennant, Antigoni Goni, Andrew York and Elena Papandreou. 
 
As a dedicated teacher, he has taught at Columbia University, The Hartt School and Capital Community College.  Francesco currently teaches at the Community Music School of Essex.
 
Francesco plays a 2018 Alan Chapman guitar.
