The international career of Arturo Tallini began in 1987 after winning the first prize in the International Michele Pittaluga Guitar Competition. Two years later in 1989, he won a third prize in the International Radio France Guitar Competition. In 1992 he received a License Superior de Concertiste from Ecole Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot in Paris. Already in 1984 Tallini began his relationship with contemporary music: he began to explore the possibilities of the guitar as an instrument, enlarge the sound and instrumental possibilities. He has been playing concerts as a soloist, in chamber music ensembles and as a soloist for an orchestra in Europe, in the United States and in North Africa. He has been doing a collaboration with several world-class musicians like Michiko Hirayama, Magnus Andersson, Bruno Canino, Nicholas Isherwoo, with various artists from the Choir of Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Dusan Bogdanovic, Eugenio Becherucci, Michele Rabbia, Enzo Filippetti, the Modus Novus of Madrid and Timisoara Orchestra. Many Italian and foreign composers have composed pieces dedicated to him.
