Margherita Berlanda is “one of the most relevant and polyhedric Italian accordionists”, particularly devoted to research in the contemporary music field. Her drive for investigating different aesthetic and artistic expressions – with a strong performative presence – has played a central role in her personal research through contemporary music. 

Her focus on contemporary arts brings her to collaborate actively with various composers, such as Samir Odeh-Tamimi, Nikolaus Brass, Mikel Urquiza, Manuela Kerer, Anna Sowa, Farzia Fallah, Anda Kryeziu, Marco Momi,  Sidney Corbett, Mauro Lanza and Manos Tsangaris. She has performed for internationally known festivals and institutions such as the Transart Festival, Bel Circolo Bellunese,  Milano Musica, Forum Neue Musik – Hochschule für Musik Mannheim, Società Filarmonica di Trento, International Koper Biennial, Kortrijk Festival, Rondò Festival, Donaueschingen Musiktagen, Pergine Festival, SpazioMusica Festival, Musica Insieme Panicale Festival, Cembalo und anderen Tasteninstrumente – Akademie der  Künste Berlin and cooperates with Fondazione Haydn Stiftung – OPER.A 20.21 Festival of Haydn Orchester von Bozen und Trient and Divertimento Ensemble Milan.

Among her career as a soloist, of notable interests are the artistic cooperations with the italian Azione_Improvvisa Ensemble, with Duo Alambic (cello and accordion duo) and with duoPlus Ensemble (Berlin).
