The Italian pianist, Filippo Gorini received both the first prize and audience prize at the 2015 Telekom-Beethoven Competition Bonn, through his performances of works by Schubert, Beethoven (including the Diabelli Variations), Schonberg, Bartok and Thomas Adès. At only twenty years old, Filippo has performed on many prestigious stages such as the Laeiszhalle (Hamburg), Herkulessaal (Munich), Konzerthaus (Berlin) Liederhalle (Stuttgart), Die Glocke (Bremen), Royal Castle of Warsaw, Royal Academy of Music (London), Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Beethovenhalle (Bonn), and Sale Apollinee at “Teatro La Fenice” (Venice) among others.
Since winning the competition, Filippo has toured Germany with the Klassische Philharmonie Bonn and made his debut at the Beethoven Easter Festival, to great critical acclaim, as well as taken part in the ‘Chamber Music connects the World’ concerts at the Kronberg Academy with Steven Isserlis. He will finish the season with recitals in Bonn, Berlin and in Italy. The 16/17 season includes a return to Bonn in recital and his debut in Leipzig at the Mendelssohnsaal, Gewandhaus and in Beijing at the Auditorium of the University. He will perform the Tchaikovsky concerto in Lichentstein and Switzerland.
Born in 1995, Filippo continues his studies with Maria Grazia Bellocchio at the “Conservatorio G. Donizetti” in Bergamo, Italy.
[…] He offered a sensational reading for coherence, control over the long form, an always singing tone, never heavy in the bass, virile and intense phrasing: […] we are looking at a musician on which I am sure I can bet for the next years, and who will not cease to be spoken about.
