Syntax Ensemble was born in 2018 in Milan as an outcome of the encouter among the conductor Pasquale Corrado, the composer Maurilio Cacciatore and the cellist Michele Marco Rossi. It’s a new group for contemporary music, already established as a non-profit association. The ensemble gathers some of the best musicians throughout the national and European musical landscape: Valentina Coladonato (soprano), Francesco D’Orazio (violin/electric violin), Michele Marco Rossi (cello/electric cello), Maruta Staravoitava (flute), Marco Ignoti (clarinet), Anna D’Errico (piano/synth), Dario Savron (percussions), Maurilio Cacciatore (electronics), Pasquale Corrado (conductor). Unique features of the ensemble are putting together internationally well-known soloists, as well as offering high quality and original artistic proposals in its concerts, dealing with high caliber international repertoires.

In 2019 the ensemble made its debut during the first concert season in the prestigious Dal Verme theatre in Milan, meeting an immediate great public approval and critical acclaim. Its success was confirmed – despite the well-known sanitary measures due to Covid-19 pandemic – in September and October 2020, during the second concert season.

It played as ensemble in residence for the final concerts of the international composition masterclasses held at the Conservatory “G.Verdi” in Milan and at the Festival Pontino 2019 (Sermoneta, province of Latina), and both partnerships were confirmed in 2021. At the beginning of December 2020 the ensemble recorded the audio-video project Una sola moltitu.
