Elegance, delicacy and power, virtuosity - these are the qualities which make Michele Campanella one of the most highly regarded pianists of the moment. Beneath the natural simplicity of his facial expressions is to be found a strong personality which is constantly engaged an attempt to achieve the highest possible artistic results. His love for "his" instrument is expressed in a constant search for the right timbre and the right colours.
Born in Naples, and trained at the famous school of Vincenzo Vitale, at only nineteen he won the "Alfredo Casella" prize. Immediately after this success he began a brilliant concert career which has taken him all around the world to perform in the most prestigious concert halls of the globe - in Vienna, London, St. Petersburg, Chicago, Prague, Berlin, Sydney, and
Melbourne. He has played with the most acclaimed symphonic orchestras - the London Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra - and under such important conductors as Abbado, Muti, Sawallish, Pretre, Inbal and Thieleman. Campanella has always been interested in new artistic experiences and in the exploration of all musical forms. He has also dedicated himself to chamber music, working with Salvatore Accardo, Rocco Filipini and Caludio Desderi.
Another feature of his personality has led him every now and then to a detailed exploration of the work of great Portraitcomposers through the presentation of seasons dedicated to the concert work and complete production of certain chief figures. He dedicated a season to Beethoven with the Regional Orchestra of Lazio within the framework of the "Concerts for Rome in 1996" and one each to Liszt and Brahms, the latter being a composer of whom he is one of the world's leading interpreters. The "Variations" are a part of his concert repertoire and last year he performed them very successfully at the "Brahms Festival" which was held at the "Auditorium di Santa Cecilia" in Rome. For many years, together with Stafania Cafaro, he has played the "Variations" in the principal concert halls of Italy and abroad, and for radio broadcasts. Recently he performed this work in a programme by Lucia Mosca produced by the RAI. He is presently preparing the organisation and performance of all of Mozart's concertos for pianoforte and orchestra with the "Orchestra Internazionale
Michele Campanella holds the prestigiousPortrait chair of pianoforte at the Accademia Chigiana of Siena, a post previously held by Alfredo Casella and Guido Agosti. He is also a member of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia. Campanella is engaged in intense recording activity and for this has received the "Gran Prix della Societe Liszt" of Budapest and the "Premio della Critica Italiana". His recent recordings include "L'Album pour les Enfants Adolescents" by Rossini from the collection of pieces for piano "Péchés de Vieillesse", and "Le Sonate" by Domenico Scarletti which was produced by "P&P - Classica" (click here for the Scarlatti cdc 006 CD).
