Roberto Capocchi, guitarist: Sign the Guestbook


July 2, 2015

Hi Roberto,
Great to see you at the festival!
Even better to hear you!
I might be finishing a guitar this coming week.
Will you be in Santa Fe? July 6-10?
May I add a link to your page on my page?
Happy Fourth of July- don't blow your fingers off!
Best wishes,

I've the pleasure of hearing Roberto Capocchi many times , the last was with conductor Linus Lerner, the Southern Arizona Symphony Orchestra in the great Concierto de Arunquez May 2012 here in Tucson. Capocchi's approach as always is relaxed light hearted, also capable of penetrating the pensive and dramatic.

"If you are looking for an enthusiastic, inspirational, and motivational classical guitar instructor who is an exceptional teacher and performer, I would highly recommend Roberto Capocchi. The invaluable instruction I have received from Roberto has made me a smoother, more dynamic player who is always striving to do better. Roberto generously shares his vast knowledge of classical guitar theory, technique, and performing experience with his students. Roberto gives his students invaluable feedback and is serious about helping them become better classical guitarists. Roberto can help beginning guitarists start out with proper technique, as well as help improve the technique of guitarists who have been playing for years."

We very much enjoyed your playing at Robin & Brian's wedding last night. It was a pleasure to have met you (and to have sat next to you!)
We would like to have you play for us in the future!
Best regards,
Tom & Kathy Maniscalco

Prezado Roberto.

Recordo-me de você e seu irmão Eduardo quando ainda muito pequenos.

Eu sou filho de Mário, o segundo filho de quatro. Seu avô, José - o mais velho -, e suas tias avós, Margarida e Elisinha. Todos meus tios.

Portanto, sou primo irmão de seu pai, Zedé ( ele 40 dias mais velho), de quem tenho grandes e felizes lembranças. Pena que há muito não nos vemos.

Quanto ao retrato de família, eu conheço essa foto.

Tirada em Santos quando de um passeio que a família lá fez. Falta na foto a tia Elisinha, ainda, à época, "vivendo" nas nuves. Então a mais nova dos quatro. Hoje falecida -- você sabe que todos eles já não mais estão aqui -- foi casada com José Maria Beiler, ambos pais de Maria Isabel.

Li em mensagem de Maria Isabel (abril/2012) que você foi o único a "perseguir" a música, lingua universal que todos entendem mas poucos tiveram a felicidade que você tem, ou seja, conhecê-la e honrá-la com maestria. - Afora isso, meu filho mais novo, Adriano (36 anos - advogado) toca guitarra e violão. Mas é mais "esportista" porque da música tira seus momentos felizes, como amador.

Não sei se você tem vindo ao Brasil ou se, por acaso, planeja vir.

Se vier será uma ótima oportunidade para agrupar os Capocchi's, não só os descendentes de Giovacchino, mas, também, os de Guido, seu irmão, que foi pai de Rafael e Fúlvia, faleceram. Mas estão os filhos destes.

Para findar, estou escrevendo aqui, porém não faço parte de qualquer programa de relacionamento.

Mantenho, sim, meu e-mail, visto acima, que repito: - Meus telefones em São Paulo, em verdade, em Cotia: celular: (11) 9.8302.6564 - residência (11) 4702.6540.

Do escritório, estou de mudança: será, dentro em breve (11) 3500.6025.

Se encontrar algum tempo entre uma música e outra, faça um e-mail. Muito me alegrará.

Seu primo, já com 72, deseja a você sucesso cada vez maior !

Beto, how are you? I've been with your father last sunday, during a mass when the choir performed two short pieces composed by "Nonno", I mean Gioachino Capocchi. I'll select with your father which may be the most interestig things to send you.
Nunca mais te vi. Fico contente pelo seu sucesso e por ser o único da família que seguiu a carreira. Um beijo
da prima de Santos, Isabel

"performemed" in Bio and Repertoire
He has performemed in master-classes and been coached by such notable artists as Sergio Abreu, David Leisner, Paul O'Dette, Alice Artzt, Orlando Fraga, Paulo Porto Alegre, Luis Claudio Ferreira, Sila Godoy, Alexandre Lagoya, Den-min Yeh, Eduardo Meirinhos, Benjamin Verdery, Oscar Gigia, Mario Ulloa, Margarita Escarpa, and Ivan Rijos. Favorable reviews often stress Mr. Capocchi's expressiveness, technical fluency, and engaging stage presence.

Mr. Capocchi,

Mr. Klemme informed me that my son Mohit missed his lesson with you on Wednesday. I am sorry that this happened. Apparently Mohit was confused about the days which is no excuse since he could have asked you or at the administration of the school. I know he is not very organized and has a lot to learn in this area. Some people will never learn but I hope he does. I am sooooooooooooooo organized (once I took a quiz for what kind of scientist you are, they told me you are an organizer). Anyway, I hope he will catch on sometime. I will talk more to Mohit about that.

Senor Roberto,
It is our privilege to have you as the guitar mentor for my son Mohit Dubey 9th grader at NMSA. We are looking forward to meeting you and enjoying your music and imparting your wisdom to our son's passion for guitar.

Thank you for your beautiful music.
I posted your encore on my Facebook page with the following comment:
Art follows money and becomes artifice. Ask an artisan.
Talent is a long patience, the rewards uncertain except the satisfaction of a job well done. Creativity is taking what is to hand and utilising one's energy and intellect for the maximum effect. To some this may seem madness, yet a thing of beauty is a joy for ever. Piazzola said... one has to be insane to take up the bandodeon. Most of his life, like Mozart, was spent scraping around for money to feed the band. His works continue to inspire musicians. Check out this short video - 382 views since January - and Roberto Capocchi's smile at the end.

More power to you - Love & Light - Angus.

Hi Roberto,
I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed listening to you play last Friday evening at the Episcopal church! I also love the Duo Guadalupe CD that I purchased. I hope to catch another performance very soon when I’m in Santa Fe again.

Very pretty design! Keep up the good work. Thanks.

Just checked out yous site again. The pic with Zoe is a blast. My daughter's name is Zoe and the T-shirt... Well, I'm Australian.
One day I may get to the States. I will definitely look you up AND attend a concert when I'm there.
(We would have to be distant relatives. My father, his brother and cousins emigrated from Elba, Italy in the early '50's)

I also was looking for the Capocchi name. My grandfather, Olivo Capocchi, came from Acquapendente in Italy. I used to be a classical guitarist. It looks like music runs in our family.

Dear Roberto,

Thank you for your kindly explanation of your guitar. That helped me a lot to choose my guitar.
I actually found Sergio's guitar in NY. Alice Artzt has several of them. By the way, I heard that Alice has known Sergio for a long time, and he is coming to NY this summer. If there is a change, I like to meet him.

As you said, his guitar has great sound and variety of colors. When I played, I instantly felt that this guitar allows me to express my idea, and I bought it. My guitar was made in 1996.

I really appreciate your advice.

Thank you very much,

Kenji Haba

I just googled my name and Roberto Capocchi came up. I did not know there were any other Capocchi's in America beside my immediate family.
I used to play the guitar years ago and I love the guitar. I think music runs in the Capocchi's blood. My grandfather Leonildo Capocchi was a french horn player in the Chicago symphony before the depression and my dad, Leo Capocchi, was an avid music lover, mostly classical but now he has branched out into other stuff. I was a rocker when younger but now I love classical as well as so many other forms. Music is soul!!Maybe sometime you will come play in Marin County or San Francisco, Berkeley, I will come see you!

I enjoyed listening to your mp3's on the website. My husband and I have recently moved to Santa Fe and I am looking for a teacher that could help me with making a CD. I need another pair of ears! My phone number is 505-412-5381. I have been in Las Vegas for the last 10 years teaching and performing.
Great Website, Kay Belangia

Roberto, vc nem vai lembrar de mim, dos tempos do anglo, 4ª série do primário.... eu me lembro como se fosse hoje das suas proezas científicas e a que mais me recordo foi aquele dia na sua casa na Paulo Orozimbo que vc colocou sal de fruta e água numa embalagem vazia e a tampinha subiu aos céus... rsrsrssr.
Cara, só que eu tenho a lhe dizer é que hoje vendo a sua projeção internacional e ascensão no mundo da música, que sempre foi a sua primeira paixão, lembro que vc dizia que queria ser maestro.... Amigo... vc foi além, meus parabéns e gostaria que vc soubesse que eu ainda me lembro de vc, cara e como vc não mudou nada..... não esqueça, vai ter um encontro da turma do anglo organizada pelo guto e nós adoraríamos que vc viesse ou então mandasse um vídeo mandando um alô pra galera, se tiver alguém que não lembra, pode ter certeza que eu vou lembrar de vc como lembrei neste recado.
Um fortíssimo abraço do amigo Alê Torri.
P.S.: que Deus continue iluminando tua vida e tua trajetória artística. Meu fone em sp é 55 11 5078 9221 horário comercial ( das 8:00 as 18:30 hs), e o email tá aí no scrap.

It was a pleasure talking with you on the airplane from Chicago to Albequerque, en route to Santa Fe. As promised, I have checked out your website and am planning to listen to your music. As mentioned, I am always interested in new music as I sometimes use it as part of my psychotherapy practice (not music therapy tho). You have a very warm, unassuming presence with a touch of elegance - I look forward to hearing this in your music! Nice to meet you - Bernadette

Professional, yet warm enough to feel welcome, the atmosphere of a "Duo Guadalupe" concert is at once formal and inviting. The Musicians bring life to the music in a way that draws one closer to a spiritual mindset. Their selections are uncommon and tend to spring from emotional ties to them. These factors resound in every note, recalling our first childhood memories of falling in love with the music of great composers, and bringing that peace to our hearts. Thank you Ellen and Roberto, your dedication to beauty is inspiring.

Hey Roberto, I really like your samples man. I recall your fine repertoire from some time ago. We knew each other briefly in Arizona ( I was at ASU) through Jorge Pastrana (any info on the maestro please!! ) and we also met at the GFA at Cal Northridge. You, myself, and Dmitri Diachenko (Karate!) enjoyed some breakfasts and some good late night jams. Take care and I'm sure we'll see each other sometime out west.

Roberto -
Congratulations on your career. i found your website thru the world guitarist. how do you like santa fe? nice website - it looks like you're creating a successful niche for yourself and your music. i'm still studying guitar as an amateur with phil hemmo, whom you probably know from the u of a, at his studio in tucson; i recently performed the m.d.pujol elegia for piazolla in a studio recital. i'm still praciticing martial arts - i've been studying a form of kung fu for the past four and a half years. we have a small school and train outside in himmel park year round. are you still praciticing shotokan? chop chop not so good for the delicate hands of the guitarist; i actually broke my right hand a year ago, but seem to have recovered pretty well. my girlfriend and i are getting married next month, and then traveling to the yucatan for our honeymoon. best wishes - let me know if you're passing thru tucson sometime - cheers, trevor
