English Bio

“Loconsolo sailed with ease and grace through all pieces and showed exceptional skills” 

– Jean Claude Elias,

    The Jordan Times, AMMAN

The National Italian newspaper “Il Tirreno”, recently hailed jazz countertenor Emiliano Loconsolo “Sophisticated, elegant, delicate voice, almost fragile like Chet Baker, fascinating with his melodies and in his velvet swing.”

An accomplished folk, jazz and classical performer, Emiliano is being considered as one of the finest interpreters of the “canzone popolare” today. He is particularly devoted to revealing the wide scope of Italian musical heritage through a diverse and fascinating repertoire that involves 16th century Italian villanella’s, baroque arias, rarely heard canzone popolare, soundtracks and contemporary art songs.

Mr. Loconsolo is trained in both jazz and classical voice and has cultivated a vocal technique that seamlessly blends tenor and countertenor registers and can approach work across multiple genres and periods. His hybrid sound is increasingly finding its place within new music, while he brings the expressive belcanto tradition into a jazz context.

Emiliano emigrated to the United States in 2002 upon receiving the Berklee College of Music’s international best talent scholarship and subsequently obtaining a degree in Jazz Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music.
