Francesco Piemontesi

Francesco Piemontesi is a pianist of exceptional refinement of expression, which is allied to a consummate technical skill. Widely renowned for his interpretation of Mozart and the early Romantic repertoire, Piemontesi’s pianism and sensibility has a close affinity too with the later 19th century and 20th century repertoire of Liszt, Dvořák, Ravel and Debussy.

Francesco Piemontesi appears with major orchestras worldwide such as the Cleveland Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester, Munich Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchester, Bavarian- and Frankfurt Radio Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. He has performed with conductors such as Marek Janowski, Sakari Oramo, Vasily Petrenko, Manfred Honeck, Robin Ticciati, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Charles Dutoit and has a close collaboration with Sir Roger Norrington, David Afkham and Andrew Manze.

Piemontesi is also a natural and keen chamber musician and with his well-balanced chamber-and recital programs he is welcome in all prestigious venues, including Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Rotterdam De Doelen, London’s Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, Berlin Philharmonie, Zürich Tonhalle, Vienna Konzerthaus and many festivals.

He plays with a variety of partners – with the Emerson Quartet, Antoine Tamestit and Jörg Widmann (as a trio), Renaud und Gautier Capuçon, Clemens Hagen, Angelika Kirchschlager and Daniel Müller-Schott. In season 2018/2019 he starts his Schubert-Cycle at Wigmore Hall and Schubertiade.

Francesco Piemontesi has released a number of fine recordings, including three for Naïve Classique: Piano Works of Mozart and Schumann and Dvořák‘s Piano Concerto op.33. His latest album of Liszts Années de pèlerinage was released in April 2018 by Orfeo.

Born in Locarno, Francesco Piemontesi studied with Arie Vardi before working with Alfred Brendel, Murray Perahia, Cécile Ousset and Alexis Weissenberg. He rose to international prominence with prizes at several major competitions and in 2009 he was chosen as a BBC New Generation Artist.

Since 2012, Piemontesi has been the Artistic Director of the Settimane Musicali di Ascona, which he advises with his enormous acknowledgment.
