The 'Duo Gazzana' comprises sisters Natascia Gazzana, violinist, and Raffaella Gazzana, pianist.

Natascia and Raffaella educational background and performances brought out their natural musical talent, earning them outstanding acclaim both from the critics and the audience.

A profound humanistic culture (Natascia and Raffaella are graduated at 'La Sapienza University' of Rome) cultivated in parallel with the musical one, allows them to enrich their performances with new expressive capabilities.

The 'Duo Gazzana' won prestigious scholarships (such as the coveted 'M. Jost' at the 'Conservatoire de Musique de Lausanne' and the 'W. Ferragamo' at the Music School of Fiesole) and gained diplomas of honors and of merit, both in Italy and abroad.

In 1999, the Duo was awarded the 'Gold Medal and Diploma' 'for exquisite interpretative sensibility and his considerable artistic personality' at the XXVII edition of the 'Foyer de Artistes', held at the 'Aula Magna' of 'La Sapienza' University of Rome. In the same year the Duo was awarded the 'Prize for Professionalism' of the 'Città di Serrone'.

In 2003, the Duo received a special mention in the 'Premio Musica Roma' at the Barberini Palace and won the first prize at the 'Lucus' Chamber Music Competition in Potenza.

The Duo has a significant teaching experience acquired abroad and in Italy at the renowned "Scuola di Musica di Fiesole".

In 2008 the 'Duo Gazzana' held a successful tour in Scandinavia, Korea and Japan where was "Government guest". The Duo performed as "Ambassador of the City of Florence" in Kyoto and Gifu, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the "sister cities partnership" between Florence and Gifu.
