This highly talented pianist suceeded in cathcing the very deep soul of the music she played. Her concert was intense and powerful in which even the silence was charged with a profound meaning”
Italy, Caterina Morabito, Gazzetta del Sud

“The pianist Alice Di Piazza played a program devoted to Liszt, Brahms and Rachmaninoff with a vigour full of emotions. Able to extract from the piano the whole range of the sonorous variety , colours and contrasts this instrument may offer, the pianist aroused the auditory’s enthusiasm.
Germany, Ibbenburener Volksreitung

Biography

Alice Di Piazza began her piano studies at the age of five.

Still a student, she was awarded the first prizes at several piano competitions.

After her performance at the “G. Battista Pergolesi” Piano Competition in Italy she got a scholarship at the London Royal Academy of Music. In London  she took advanced courses under the tuition of the pianist Enrique Arias, one of the last pupils of the Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau.

Since then Alice addressed herself to an intense period of specialization studies with internationally renowned pianists such Krystian Zimerman and Wieslaw Szlachta, one of Zimerman’s Polish teacher.

She has also benefitted from the valuable advices of the pianists Murray Perahia and Maria Joao Pires.

While never losing sight of her piano specialisation, she broadened her horizons through a deep study on counterpoint and fugue, orchestra conducting and composition.

Alice began to play as a piano soloist when she was twelve, in the renowned Messina’s Theatre “Vittorio Emanuele” with a piano recital devoted to Robert Schumann’s piano works.

Encouraged and described by Krystian Zimerman, as “a high talented and musical pianist with creative and poetic gifts…a very promising young pianist” Alice is no stranger to the international stages.

She was invited to perform in recital and as soloist with orchestra all over Europe, Russia, Switzerland and Baltic countries at prestigious venues like the International Holland Music Session, the KKL in Luzern, the Wiltz Luxembourg Festival,  the International Bergen Festival in Norway, the Klavierissimo Festival in Zürich, the Teatro Massimo of Palermo, the Grande Salle du Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, the Klaipeda Spring Music Festival in Lithuany, the Societé de Musique de La Chaux-De-Fonds etc..

Recently she played with success a concert in the renowned KKL of Lucerne with the Festival Strings Lucerna Orchestra under the conducting of Daniel Doods.

Her recitals have received the attention of the international press and critics.

She has caused headlines like “Extraordinary performance”, “Masterfully”, “Great virtuosity and incredible interpretation”, “Perfect balance of music and poetry”, “ Remarkable interpretation…an excellent musical event”, “Full of impressive sensitivity and lyricism”, etc..

Alice was featured on the Radiotelevisione Italiana RAI 3, the National Radio and TV of Lithuania, the Swiss Radio Television RTS,  Espace 2 and Canal Alpha.

She has often worked in conjunction with contemporary music composers and she has premiered a large number of works dedicated to her.

In 2011 she met the Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina with whom she started a productive collaboration that is still lasting, and that has deepened her knowledge of the composer’s piano works.

As Sofia Gubaidulina has recently recognised “Alice’s unique, creative, and original talent is to combine technical perfection and artistic virtuosity with meaning and willpower. What a revelation ! Thus we might say, without exaggerating, that the renowed Italian pianist Alice Di Piazza is a highly talented pianist with a strong personality and a genuine relation to life and art. Technical skills and artistic talent, expressiveness and imaginative power -Alice combines all these qualities in a really creative act. I am sure that an artist of such profundity and calibre will be received by the public as a true gift“.

Alice has been invited to give piano and chamber music Master Classes in Italy, Belgium, France, Germany and Switzerland.
