Trained under the guidance of the great Italian pianist Maria Tipo, Andrea Lucchesini garnered international attention at a young age when he won the Dino Ciani International Competition at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan. Around that time, he made his debut on our series at the Vancouver Playhouse. He enjoyed a close collaboration with renowned Italian composer Luciano Berio and has recorded all his works for piano. Andrea is currently Artistic Director at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole where he teaches when he’s not performing.
“With a refined touch and a beguiling sense of Schubertian style, the Italian pianist Andrea Lucchesini conveys to captivating effect the sublime invention and intimacy of the impromptus.” — The Telegraph
