Biography

Emilio Guarino is a bassist, producer, and author with experience that ranges from orchestral performance to contemporary electronic music, jazz, and free improvisation. 

He is an alumnus of Pierre Boulez's venerable Lucerne Festival Academy and has worked with a number of internationally celebrated composers, conductors, ensembles, and performers. Since graduating from The Hartt School in 2013, Emilio has shared a stage with Sir Simon Rattle, Alan Gilbert, Anne-Sophie Mutter, David Taylor, Matthias Pintscher, Myron Walden, Martin Kuuskmann, Renée Fleming, Ron Jackson, Glenn Kotche, The MIT Media Lab, and the GRAMMY-Award winning Norwegian string ensemble 1B1. 

His rapid success echoes what so many other musicians know intuitively: a willingness to experiment and explore while staying dedicated to the deep traditions of the craft is a must for any musician in an ever changing industry. Embracing this philosophy has quickly distinguished Emilio as an ambitious, rising member of the global music scene.
