Italian pianist, Filippo Gorini, is praised for his “rare intellect, temperament…and vivid imagination”. In 2015, he received both the first and audience prizes at the Telekom Beethoven Competition Bonn, for his performances of works by Schubert, Beethoven, Schönberg, Bartok and Thomas Adès.
In summer 2018, Filippo made his debut at Rheingau Festival and Festspiele MecklenburgVorpommern, alongside appearances at Muse Salentine in Italy, and Plush Festival in Dorset, UK. He begins his 2018/19 season at the IMS Prussia Cove Open Chamber Music series, joining Steven Isserlis, whom he performed with at the Chamber Music Connects the World at Kronberg Academy in 2016. Recital highlights this season include performances at Amici Della Musica in Florence, Società dei Concerti in Trieste, Edesche Concertzaal, Munich Herkulessaal, Slovak Philharmonic, Arts et Lettres in Vevey and Tonhalle Zürich. Filippo also heads to the US in February where he makes his debut at the Vancouver Recital Series and Meany Center for the Performing Arts in Seattle. Later in the season he joins Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen on their UK tour performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, as well as making his debut with the Giuseppe Verdi Symphony Orchestra of Milan and Claus Peter Flor, for performances of Brahms Piano Concerto No.2 across Italy.
Filippo’s recent concert appearances in Europe have drawn unanimous acclaim on prestigious stages such as the Konzerthaus Berlin, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Laeiszhalle Hamburg, Die Glocke Bremen, Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Beethovenhaus Bonn, and Sale Apollinee at Teatro La Fenice. In May 2018 Filippo received recognition for the “Una vita per la musica - Giovani”, annually awarded by La Fenice in Venice. Previous awards and competition success includes the 2017 Beethoven-Ring prize from the Citizens for Beethoven Association in Bonn, first prize at the Neuhaus Competition in Moscow, and prize of the Young Euro Classics Festival in Berlin.
Filippo’s debut disc of The Diabelli Variations was released last year on Alpha Classics and has received outstanding reviews including 5-star ratings from The Guardian, Le Monde, BBC, as well as a Diapason D’or. Filippo continues his studies with Maria Grazia Bellocchio and Pavel Gililov at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg, as well as receiving mentorship from Alfred Brendel.
