Biography

Maria Perrotta is an Italian concert pianist living in Paris. She has recorded for Decca, Cinik Records and ClassicaViva and has broadcast on Sky TV and on German and Italian radio. Her live recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations won the Critics' Award in major musical magazines and received rave reviews in major newspapers: "A perfect blend of the lush pianism of Alexis Weissenberg and the laser-like control of Glenn Gould." (Libero). "If she stays on this path, Maria Perrotta seems destined to become the Italian Rosalyn Tureck." (Corriere della Sera).

A prodigy, she made her debut with a symphony orchestra at the age of 11 performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 at the Rendano Theatre of Cosenza, her native city. Since then, she has given concerts across Italy and Europe. In 2013 she performed Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 with the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini conducted by Antoni Wit and Beethoven's last three piano sonatas to critical acclaim: "Where Pollini is fast and formalistic, Perrotta is analytical and expressive, but, like Pollini, always maintains a sense of formal unity." (Corriere della Sera).

A graduate of the Milan Conservatoire, of the École Normale de Musique in Paris and of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, Maria Perrotta has won top prizes in several international piano competitions including the Shura Cherkassky International Piano Competition in Milan and the J. S. Bach International Piano Competition of Saarbrücken (Germany), where she also gained critical acclaim: "The crystal-clear sound, the ever-audible structure and stimulating phrasal articulation made this an ideal interpretation." (Allgemeine Zeitung).
