Andrea Lucchesini Piano Concert



Andrea Lucchesini Piano Concert

Andrea Lucchesini, one of the most outstanding Italian pianists of our time, in a recital to celebrate his latest CD Dialogues (Scarlatti & Berio / Schubert & Widmann) released, in September 2018, by the Audite label.

Trained under the guidance of Maria Tipo, Andrea Lucchesini garnered international recognition at a very young age when he won the "Dino Ciani" International Competition at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan. Since then he has performed throughout the world with leading orchestras, working with conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Semyon Bychkov, Roberto Abbado, Riccardo Chailly, Dennis Russell Davies, Charles Dutoit, Daniele Gatti, Gabriele Ferro, Gianluigi Gelmetti, Daniel Harding, Vladimir Jurowski, Gianandrea Noseda and Giuseppe Sinopoli. In December 2015 he returned to Teatro La Scala with Beethoven's Choral Fantasy, under the baton of Franz Welser Moest.

His wide-ranging activities, marked by a desire to explore music with no limitations, led him to offer programs ranging from classical to contemporary repertoire. In 1994 this earned him the recognition of European musicologists from which he received the Accademia Chigiana International Prize (the only Italian honored with it so far). The following year he won the F. Abbiati Prize, which confirmed the appreciation of the Italian critics.
