Vito Lattarulo is a complete musician.
As conductor or pianist, vocal accompanist or chamber musician,
repetiteur or coach, his versatility and artistic honesty have always
received high praise from both his colleagues and his audience.
Vito's holistic approach to life is evident also in his music-making.
His philosophy is to treat everything as chamber music, from a simple
and pure Lied to big and complex opera scenes. To him, mutual
listening is not only a vital element of playing together but also a
crucial aspect of harmonious social life.

Trio Fontaine, with which he
recorded opus 1, a CD with music
by Beethoven and Arensky. Their vast repertoire includes, among
others, the complete cycle of Beethoven piano trios.
