About – Giardino Strings is the brainchild and labour of love of David Giardino. Born in a family of creatives in Southern Italy, David showed signs of his affinity to music at a very young age. His father Paolo wanted him to be a painter like himself, but seeing David’s natural inclination for music, sent him to the prestigious music school – Conservatorio Bari at the age of nine. Started the early training in the strict discipline of the Conservatorio laid the foundation for the impeccable service that Giardino Strings provides today.

During his time at the Conservatorio, David was recognised as a natural talent in violin playing. Seeing that he was taking fast strides into the world of professional music, David’s maestros at the Conservatorio encouraged him to train under a world-renowned expert. He was then put in the charge of renowned violinist and pedagogue, Riccardo Brengola for the next level of his training.

At age twenty, David was inducted into the famous Rome Opera House as a Professor of Orchestra. They were travelled extensively through Europe, Asia and South America performing with the orchestra. David decided to move to London in 1995, wanting to further expand his career. When he arrived in the U.K., he played with prestigious groups like the Birmingham Ballet and Oxford Philharmonic. 

In 1999, David came across an opportunity to independently organise and perform music for an event. This was an area he had never explored before, so he decided to take it up for fun. The event turned out to be such a success that more such offers started pouring it.

Soon David realised his potential as a curator of musical services. He was not only a talented musician, but also possessed the knack to bring together ensembles to fit the specific requirements of his clients. 

From that one event done for fun in 1999, Giardino Strings has come a long way to performing for over 230 events in the year 2019. Every piece played by the group is well researched and lovingly arranged to provide a memorable event for the listeners.
