Born in Los Angeles, Diana Castelnuovo-Tedesco grew up near the California home of her grandfather, composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and her grandmother, Clara. Diana studied art history and Italian at Smith College in Massachusetts before settling in New York City. In tandem with career in communications, Diana dedicates herself to making her grandfather’s vast catalog of compositions more accessible to performers, scholars, and the general public. In 2015, the Castelnuovo-Tedesco family began a collaboration with Edizioni Curci (edizionicurci.it) and the Comitato Nazionale Italiano Musica (CIDIM) to publish a number of works for the first time, including vocal, chamber, and piano music. In addition, Diana continues to augment the Castelnuovo-Tedesco Collection at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., which encompasses more than 7,000 documents, including hundreds of original musical manuscripts. Diana has been honored to participate in conferences and seminars in the United States and in Italy that have explored different aspects of Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s music, life, and legacy. In 2016, Diana, her sister, and cousins accepted the Mi Ricordo (I Remember) Award from the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles on behalf of their grandfather. She is delighted to be part of the Miami International GuitArt Festival 2017.
