Con fuego en la sangre y una entrega de las que emocionan, Maria Grazia Schiavo da una lección de canto inolvidable sacando a relucir su genio napolitano. Vela Del Campo, El Paìs, April 2013

Born in Naples, Maria Grazia Schiavo studied with R. Passaro at the Conservatory in Naples, graduating with honours. First Prize in Santa Cecilia Competition in Rome and First Prize in Clermont Ferrand International Singing Competition, she made her debut on stage with Roberto De Simone, performing the leading role in La Gatta Cenerentola touring in the most important theatres in Italy and abroad.

 She began a career of concerts and opera at a young age, specializing in chamber music and baroque repertoire.

 In the early baroque Italian repertoire she sang Euridice, La Musica and Proserpina in Monteverdi’s Orfeo at Teatro Real in Madrid with William Christie and Pierluigi Pizzi; Venere in Cavalli’s La Didone with Europa Galante in Venice La Fenice and Floralba in Cavalli’s Statira at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples.

 In sacred music, she has sung Messa per l’Incoronazione di Napoleone di Paisiello in Festival St-Denis; and Mozart’s Exultate Jubilate at Teatro Real in Madrid.

 She has recorded several cds for Naïve: Pulcinella Vendicato by Pasiello; La Statira by Cavalli and Coralità e Devotione by Provenzale. She has also recorded Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater for the label Eloquentia with Stéphanie D’Oustrac and Antonio Florio. It was recently released by Glossa Cantate Italiane by Handel with la Risonanza and a program on the Venetian Ospedali with the Vocal Concert Dresden. Her first solo cd “Furor” with music by Spanish composer Terradellas received a great critical acclaim.
