Luca Buratto, 2015 Honens Prize Laureate, is a pianist of “fiery imagination and finesse” (Musical America). In addition to his success at Canada’s Honens Piano Competition, the Italian pianist was awarded third prize at the International Robert Schumann Competition (Zwickau) and the special ‘Acerbi’ prize, awarded to a distinguished Finalist at Milan’s Shura Cherkassky Competition, both in 2012.
Buratto first caught the public’s attention at the Conservatory of Milan’s Sala Verdi where, for a Holocaust Remembrance Day event in 2003, he performed music of Renzo Massarani, his great grandfather. [Massarani (1898–1975), a student of Ottorino Respighi, was a promising young composer whose career was interrupted by the imposition of racial laws in 1938.] He has gone on to give the Milan premiere of the youthful Beethoven Piano Concerto in E-flat major WoO 4 with I Pomeriggi Musicali Orchestra, performances with Orchestra Sinfonica Giuseppe Verdi, La Verdi Symphonic Orchestra, Magdeburgische Philharmonie, and recitals throughout France, Italy and Switzerland. He has also been featured on national radio broadcasts on Radio Classica and Radio 3 RAI. He will be a resident artist at the 2016 Marlboro Music Festival (Vermont) and, in 2017, gives his Wigmore Hall recital debut (London).
