Matteo Fossi, born in Florence in October 1978, began studying the piano at the age of eight at the Scuola della Musica in Fiesole with Tiziano Mealli as a mentor, obtaining his degree with the highest honours in 1999 at the Conservatoire of Ferrara. He later improved himself with Maria Tipo, and then with Pier Narciso Masi. In 2001, he attended, as actual scholar the Maurizio Pollini Seminar at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena. Really engaged as a concert performer since he was young, he is considered as one of the main chamber music players. He is renowned for a wide recording activity for several labels.
