ABOUT

Alessandro Stella has been a regular guest artist at the “Progetto Martha Argerich” in Lugano since 2008.

His concert appearances have brought him to many Italian, European and Latin American cities, in some of the most prestigious venues and concert seasons.

His numerous recordings, released by ARTALINNA, CONTINUO, KHA, STRADIVARIUS and WARNER Classics, have received unanimous international appreciation.

In February 2016 he performed in Tbilisi on the occasion of the 80th birthday of the Georgian composer Giya Kancheli. He premiered, in the presence of the composer, a selection of Miniatures for piano and a cycle of Songs with the mezzo-soprano Nino Surguladze.

In November 2018 he performed for the first time in Cuba at the second edition of the festival Habana Clásica. On this occasion, he premiered the show “Sacre”, together with the dancer Abel Rojo and the pianist Marcos Madrigal.

In June 2014 he was for the first time in South America for a tour in the most important venues of Argentina (Teatro Coliseo, Buenos Aires; Teatro El Cí­rculo, Rosario; Teatro El Libertador, Córdoba).

Since 2005 he has collaborated assiduously with the “Isabella Scelsi Foundation” and has been engaged especially in “rediscovering” Giacinto Scelsi’s first artistic period.

In 2017 he released for the Italian label STRADIVARIUS the world premiere recording of Scelsi’s early chamber works for violin, cello and piano, performed with Markus Däunert and Giovanni Gnocchi.

To his activities as a solo artist he adds his intense involvement with chamber music, regularly playing with Gemma Bertagnolli, Gilda Buttà , Mauro Conti, Giovanni Gnocchi, Marcos Madrigal, Tai Murray, Giacomo Palazzesi, Pietro Roffi and Nino Surguladze.

He is founder member, with Giorgia Tomassi and Carlo Maria Griguoli, of the three pianos ensemble “The Pianos Trio”.

Notable contemporary composers, like Carlo Boccadoro, Nicola Campogrande and Giya Kancheli, have written and dedicated important works to him, which he has created and often recorded as world premiere recordings.

Alessandro Stella studied with Raffaella d’Esposito, then continuing his studies with Franco Scala and Marco Di Bari.

He has also attended seminars and master classes with Bruno Canino, Maria João Pires, Maurizio Pollini, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Alexis Weissenberg and Christian Zacharias.

Alessandro Stella has been teaching piano at the Conservatorio “Gesualdo da Venosa” in Potenza since 2015.
