Pietro Soraci (Piano)

Born: October 29, ____ - Catania, Italy

The Italian pianist, Pietro Soraci, showed his extraordinary natural talent in playing the piano since he was 3 years old, gaining the interest of the national press and televisions. He performed first when he was 11, with the Orchestra of Bellini Opera Theater. He graduated - followed by Emilia Miozzi - with the highest score, cum laude, and honored with a special award of appreciation. After experiencing different approaches to the piano music and techniques through the contact with some of the major teachers like Elisabeth Leonskaja (Salzburg, Austria), Massimo Bertucci and Vincenzo Vitale (Sermoneta, Italy), Andrej Jasinski (Katovice Music Accademy), he was awarded of several prizes in national and international piano competitions and in particular he was recognized as the best Italian pianist by the International Piano Competition Frederic Chopin in Varsaw (Poland) in 1985.

Currently Pietro Soraci performs all over Europe and Italy by the main Music Institutions and Concert Seasons both as soloist and in ensembles. Moreover he is full Professor for the major degree in piano music by the Conservatorio di Milano “G. Verdi”. He has recently undertaken (by Da Vinci classics) the complete recording of J.S. Bach's keyboard works on critical edition with Barenreiter patronage. He currently lives in Milan, Italy.

Bach, one of the greatest monuments that history of music has left to posterity.
