Virginia Sutera, violin
Virginia Sutera has always been interested in the development, creation and composition of musical language and the interaction of music with other arts. She creates and composes original music, also for theatrical performances and short films. Her main projects Duo Sutera Novali, Fase Hobart and the ANSER duo with the pianist Alberto Braida, of which the homonymous album was released in September by Stradivarius label, are of chamber music with original repertoire between writing and improvisation; she is among the founders of the international improvisational collective #tuscanymusicrevolution. She started a research on the relationship between visual and music, developing her own translation code from one language to the other.
