Alessandro Taverna has shown a most remarkable, constant development that makes him one of the most interesting pianists of his generation.Italian pianist Alessandro Taverna trained at the Accademia Pianistica “Incontri col Maestro” in Imola. Hailed by the British music critics as the ‘natural successor to his great compatriot Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli’, Alessandro Taverna’s ‘music making stimulates the senses as does a visit to his native Venice’, and gives ‘rise to a feeling of wonderment’. When he reached the final and performed Chopin’s First Piano Concerto at 2009 Leeds International Piano Competition, ‘the world was suddenly suffused with grave beauty: flawless minutes of poetry’. The Independent.
“A superb recital of musical-technical skills demonstrated the sheer musicality and tonal perfection of this rare artist at his very best.”
