A chocolate pairing with a difference with Fabio Federico from Italy and Ferrero Rocher


What could be more romantic and special than feeling like you have dined on Valentine’s Day in a unique and delicious setting? And an ideal pairing for a prelude to Valentine’s Day is the Chocolate Dinner with Fabio Federico at the MLH. 

The chocolate by none other than Ferrero Rocher and Fabio was flown over by Qatar Airways and in partnership with the Embassy of Italy. Fabio 

Federico, born in Rossano, will ignite 12 February 2011 at the Empire Ballroom, with guitar repertoire of the 19th and 20th Centuries held by illustrious exponents of worldwide fame such as Angelo Gilardino, Tilman Hoppstock, Maurizio Colonna and Luigi Biscaldi. 

He has been a guest in numerous local television programmes and recorded some soundtracks for fiction TV. He also has taken part in important Italian concert seasons with great approval of the critics and popular success. 

He has won numerous prizes in national and international contest for guitar, including the Benvenuto Terzi of Clusone (Bergamo), the International Guitar Contest of Lagonegro, the XIII National Contest City of Parma, the XIV International Contest Nicola Fago of Taranto, the International Contest Emilio Pujol of Sassari, the National Contest City of Castelfidardo. 

“One of the most interesting virtuosi on the new national guitar scene,” states the Guitar Club.

“He is gifted instrumentalist, excellent technique and great self-confidence in public: sound, mental clarity, memory, presence make him a concert player who always gives the exact impression of knowing what he wants to do with the music he plays, and knowing how to do it with precision and nonchalance….” – Angelo Gilardino

“The Calabrian guitarist demonstrates an extremely qualified mastership leading to virtuosismo, typical of this interpretation of the 19th century” – Guitart

 “…in the studies of Gilardino the technical exuberance of the Calabrian musician takes pride of place and gives back to the text its expressive strength/force…” – Sei Corde.
