THE EQUInox duo was born with the aim of enhancing an organic and a type of repertoire not yet too frequented in Europe, such as that of "clarinet and guitar", with Giovanni Lanzini on the clarinet and Fabio Montomoli on the guitar.
Giovanni Lanzini graduated very young at the "L. Cherubini" Conservatory in Florence, and later perfected with illustrious clarinetists such as Karl Leister (Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra), Primo Borali (RAI Orchestra of Milan) and Vincenzo Mariozzi (Academy of Saint Cecilia of Rome).
Fabio Montomoli graduated in Classical Guitar with honors at the "S. Cecilia" Conservatory in Rome with Maestro Carlo Carfagna and later attended the permanent course at the Mozarteum in Salzburg with the masters Eliot Fisk and Joaquin Clerch-Diaz. For several years the duo has been carrying out an intense concert activity that has led them to perform for the most prestigious musical associations both in Italy and in many countries of the world (France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Sweden, Romania, Africa, States United States, Lebanon, Greece, Spain, Czech Republic, Russia, Malta, Japan) which brought him many acclaim and flattering criticism.
Giovanni Lanzini and Fabio Montomoli have made various radio and television recordings for RAI1, RAI2, RAI3, Vatican Radio, Croatian Radio and Television, etc. and have to their credit the recording of numerous recordings of classical and contemporary music for the labels EMI Classic, Bongiovanni, Miki-Mako, Italian Space Agency, Iktius, Avvenimenti, San Paolo Audiovisivi, EMA Records, SaM and M.A.P. Always attentive to the evolution of clarinet and guitar in the field of chamber music, the duo has developed a wide repertoire ranging from the nineteenth-century hausmusik to the most important composers of Italian and Latin American music, to which they were dedicated the CDs "Cançao do Amor" (2009) and "Ciao, Italia!" (2013) for the label Sam. Also in the contemporary repertoire the duo is often the dedicatee of interesting compositions by important Italian and foreign authors to whom the next album of the group will be dedicated.
