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”. He has gained international recognition reaching the podium at the prestigious Leeds Competition in 2009, after winning major prizes at the piano competitions in London and Hamamatsu, at the Busoni in Bolzano, Premio Venezia and Premio Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli. Since then, his career has led him to perform at the world’s most important concert venues, from the Musikverein in Vienna to the Wigmore Hall, with Orchestras such as Filarmonica Della Scala, the Müncker Philharmoniker, directed by Lorin Maazel, Fabio Luisi, Riccardo Chailly, Daniel Harding and many others. After graduating from the Santa Cecilia Foundation in Portogruaro with special mention, he studied at the Imola International Piano Academy, at the Santa Cecilia Academy in Rome, at the Hochschule für Musik in Hannover and the Lake Como Academy. In 2012, Italian President Giorgio Napolitano honoured him with the “Premio Presidente Della Repubblica” for his artistic achievements and international career.
…He has the potential to become one of the greatest performers of twentieth-century music.
