Emanuela Piemonti

Emanuela Piemonti began studying the piano at the age of four and subsequently studied at the Milan Conservatoire with Anita Porrini and Alberto Mozzati, obtaining her Diploma in 1980 with maximum marks. Her instrumental soloist carreer has always been combined with the art of “playing together” with other musicians: she played with performers of international reputation including Hermann Baumann, Franco Maggio Ormezowski, John Mackeney, Enrico Dindo, Mario Hossen and Michèle Scharapan. Under the guide of Trio di Trieste, in 1982 she founded the Trio Matisse, with whom, in the following years, she won the international prizes Vittorio Gui of Florence, Atkinson of Milan and Città di Torino, being finalist of the Melbourne Chamber Music Competition. She began a career that would lead her for twenty-five years to play in the most famous Italian Societies and Halls (La Fenice in Venice, San Carlo in Naples, Carlo Felice in Genoa, Ponchielli in Cremona, Olimpico in Vicenza and in Rome, Bibiena in Mantua, Quirinale, Sala Verdi in Milan, Lingotto in Turin, Salone dei Cinquecento in Florence...) and tour Germany, Spain, France, Portugal, Israel, Australia and China. She has always considered it essential to accompany the Classics with new music, collaborating with many composers including Mauricio Kagel, Luis de Pablo, Salvatore Sciarrino, György Kurtág, Luca Francesconi, Ivan Fedele and Alessandro Solbiati to whom she is married. She has recorded for the labels Aura, Stradivarius and Amadeus. In 2013 she has won the prize "Choc de Classica" of the French Classica Magazine for the recording of the Triple Concerts by Ghedini and Casella. She is professor of Chamber Music at the Conservatorio “G.Verdi” of Milano and considers teaching as important and exciting as performing.
