Gabriele Carcano, recipient of a 2010 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship Award, is a pianist equally at home in recital, as a soloist with orchestras and in chamber music. Gabriele began studying the piano at the age of seven and graduated from the Conservatory Giuseppe Verdi in Turin at the age of seventeen with the highest grades and honours. Praised by the Süddeutsche Zeitung as a “sculptor of sound” and “aesthete” after his Munich debut at the Herkulessaal, Gabriele is the winner of numerous awards, including the Casella Prize at the Competition Premio Venezia, where he made his debut at Teatro La Fenice. He has been supported by the CRT Foundation, De Sono Foundation and was also awarded a grant from the Fondation des Banques Populaires Françaises – Natexis in 2008. Gabriele has appeared in recitals worldwide. In summer 2016 Carcano released his first CD with early works by Johannes Brahms for the label Oehms Classics. For the recording he received great critical acclaim and the supersonic award by Pizzicato. Since autumn 2015 he teaches at the Accademia di Musica in Pinerolo.
