Fanny Azzuro piano
At 34 years old, “Fanny Azzuro asserts her flamboyant and inquiring personality among the young generation of pianists.” (Pianiste)
Fanny Azzuro’s piano opens up her world and, with her keyboard, she follows all the paths which allow her to unlock her craving for repertoires, encounters and experiences. In 2020, she is focussing on Beethoven and Schumann, with a strong inclination for Russian music: in early 2021, she will release a new album dedicated to the complete Preludes of Rachmaninov.
Her last season featured concerts at prestigious venues in the music world, including Carnegie Hall, the International Piano Festival of La Roque d’Anthéron, La Folle Journée de Nantes, Nohant Chopin Festival, the Lille Piano Festival, Pianos Folies, Salle Cortot in Paris and the French Consulate in New York.
In 2017, Fanny Azzuro recorded with Paraty Harmonia Mundi her second solo album, 1905 Impressions, which was nominated at the International Classical Music Awards and received many accolades: Pianiste Maestro, 5 quavers from Pizzicato and 4 stars from Pianist Magazine. It was also selected by Concertclassic: “Fanny Azzuro’s recording is a little gem!” It is still regularly played on Radio Classique and France Musique.
An all-round inquiring musician, she has a passion for the repertoire for piano and orchestra, as well as for chamber music, which she shares with the Voce, Hermès, Girard and Van Kuijk quartets.
She has been fully engaged for the past 10 years with the SpiriTango Quartet, performing highly personal versions of tango nuevo. In terms of unexpected collaborations, she takes great pleasure in engaging with the percussionist Adélaïde Ferrière, in a marimba-piano duo, and plans to release an album in 2021.
After graduating from the Paris National Conservatoire, she studied at the Accademia Pianistica Internazionale in Imola with Boris Petrushansky and won many international competitions. Officially a Yamaha Artist, she is also supported by Spedidam, the Mécénat Musical Société Générale, Safran Foundation for Music and Adami.
