This is what Classical Guitar Magazine said about a very young Flavio Sala;
"It made a favourable impression in the form of an exceptionally convincing Usher-Vals. Perhaps it takes the fiery imagination of a 17 year old to do this work full justice" - Classical Guitar Magazine
If you haven't heard of this young man before now then you're soon sure to find out what you've been missing.
Flavio was born in Bojano, Campobasso in Italy in 1983. As young as he is, his impact on the world of classical guitar has been immense.
Studying under Pasqualino Garzia at the Lorenzo Perosi Conservatory, he graduated with a first-class degree and honourable mention. He also took part in Oscar Ghiglia's International Master Classes at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana di Siena. Here he was awarded the diploma of merit and the foundation's grant every year. Oscar Ghiglia said of him, “A pupil as Flavio Sala: a rare event”.
Flavio is a founder member of Associazione Musicale Joaquín Rodrigo and is also the Artistic Director of the Accademia Internazionale Mario Santoro. The Accademia organises instrumental master classes in Bojano that are attended by many of the most famous and renowned teachers and classical guitarists in Europe.
Flavio received the "Best Talent Golden Guitar" at the XI International Guitar Meeting in Alessandria (2006).
He is currently touring all around the world.
Flavios' guitar is built by an Italian guitar-maker Camillo Perrella.
