Mark Delpriora has enjoyed a tripartite career as a composer, performer and educator. As a performer, Delpriora’s New York Debut was praised by the New York Times:
"The first notes of Mark Delpriora's guitar recital established him as a musician of authority. In a little Mozart transcription by Julian Bream he showed a rare feeling for the specific gravity of a Mozartean phrase, for the inevitability of its rise and fall. Delpriora is a guitarist to be reckoned with"
He has recorded for Philips and Koch International Classic and has recorded more than a half-dozen CDs with flutist Laurel Zucker on Cantilena Records, including the “Sonata “Aubade”. Delpriora’s travels have taken him throughout the United States and Canada, as well Italy, Brazil, Uruguay and Greece.
As a composer his works have been performed all over the world and have been published by Editions Orphee, Bèrben Edizioni Musical and Mel Bay. He has been commissioned by Stanley Yates, Cristiano Porqueddu, Duo Ahlert & Schwab, Duo Scarlatti, Hibernian Guitar Duo, Damien Lancelle and Paulo Martelli and has dedicated major works to his friends Angelo Gilardino and Carlos Barbosa-Lima. Delpriora’s work “Variations on a Theme by Sor” was chosen as the set piece for the 2011 Guitar Foundation of America Competition.
