Filippo Gorini

“Brave, original playing”

At only 26 years of age, Filippo Gorini’s strong artistic personality has led him to receive the “Premio Abbiati” as best soloist of the year 2022, as well as the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award 2020 and First Prize at the Telekom-Beethoven Competition 2015. He has performed on prestigious stages such as the Berlin Konzerthaus, London Wigmore Hall, the Van Cliburn Foundation, and the Vancouver Recital Society.

Gorini’s albums featuring Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, Hammerklavier and op. 111 sonatas have garnered critical acclaim, including a Diapason d’Or Award and 5-star reviews on The Guardian, BBC Music Magazine, Le Monde, and more. His recent recording of Bach’s The Art of Fugue, was nominated one of the best albums of 2021 by Le Monde.

Gorini actively follows the world of contemporary composition, and has played works by composers such as Stockhausen, Kurtág, Lachenmann, Gervasoni, as well as premiering new works. His ongoing multidisciplinary project “The Art of Fugue Explored” has shown his vision and creativity to go further than just his performing abilities.

Presented in collaboration with the Vancouver Recital Society.
