Luca Buratto - Solo Recital

Since winning the 2015 Honens International Piano Competition, Italian pianist Luca Buratto has received several warm praises. His debut recitals at Wigmore and Carnegie Hall heralded the pianist as “no ordinary virtuoso” (The Telegraph).

Described by International Piano Magazine as “masterly,” Buratto’s regarded interpretations of prolific British composer Thomas Adès reveal his versatility as “an artist who is both illuminating and unafraid.” For his debut recital in Washington DC, Luca will perform a selection of works by J.S. BachT. Adès and R. Schumann.

Biography

2015 Honens Prize Laureate, Luca Buratto (25) is a pianist of "fiery imagination and finesse" (Musical America). In addition to his success at Canada’s Honens Piano Competition, Buratto was awarded third prize at the International Robert Schumann Competition (Zwickau) and the special ‘Acerbi’ prize.

Burrato’s recent engagements include the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sinfonica Giuseppe Verdi (La Scala Milan), the Toronto Symphony, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Winnipeg Symphony.

Buratto’s festival appearances and residencies include Progetto Martha Argerich at the Lugano Festival (Switzerland), Busoni and Primavera Beethoveniana Festivals (Italy), Marlboro Music Festival (USA), and the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival (Canada). In 2018, he is an Academy Musician at the 25th Verbier Festival Academy (Switzerland).

Buratto’s discography includes Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze, Humoreske & Blumenstück (Hyperion Records). Alex Baran from Wholenote Toronto said: “Buratto plays with such a conviction that you immediately know he is certain he has revealed Robert Schumann’s true voice. It’s a deep connection that he sustains effortlessly through the entire recording. Hear him live if you can.”

Following graduation from the Milan Conservatory in 2010, Buratto earned a Masters degree from the Bolzano Conservatory. As a Theo Lieven Scholar at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana (Lugano) under the guidance of William Grant Naborè, he also received a Masters of Advanced Studies.
