Ignazio Alayza (Viola): Italian raised but with an international background, 1994 born violist Ignazio Alayza completed his studies with honours at the national conservatoire of his hometown, La Spezia, and he is currently finishing his second Master of Arts at the Private University of Music and Arts (MUK) of Vienna in the class of Gertrud Weinmeister. Besides constant artistic refinement through classes and master courses in whole Europe, with celebrated performers and like Maxim Rysanov, the Zemtsov family, Karsten Dobers or David Šlechta, among the others, he also had a chance to challenge hisself with teaching in the framework of a social project dedicated to children affected by social unrest (loosely based on the Abreu method) in his homeland, from 2014 till 2018. He is active as an orchestral performer in many different ensembles, like the EUYO (he has been a member of the European Music Gallery Festival Italian tour in 2020), the Brno Philharmonic (Czech Republic, as a trainee) or Italian orchestras as the Sanremo Symphony or the Puccini Festival Philharmonic of Torre del Lago, where he also led the viola section, but his activity is mostly centred on chamber music, with focus on the newly reborn Kandinsky String Quartet and the London based Duo Stoevskij, with double bassist Valentina Ciardelli, in whose first CD recording published by Da Vinci he appears as a guest.
