Emanuele Arciuli

Emanuele Arciuli has established himself as one of the most original and interesting performers on today's classical music scene. His repertoire ranges from Bach to contemporary music, with a strong affinity for composers from the United States. Having gained the respect of distinguished composers such as Helmut Lachenmann and George Crumb, Emanuele Arciuli has had many new works written for him, including piano concertos by Michael Nyman, Lorenzo Ferrero, Filippo Del Corno, Michele dall'Ongaro, Carlo Boccadoro and Louis W. Ballard. His numerous recordings include Gates to Everywhere, with music by Carla Bley, Fred Hersch, and Chick Corea, the complete piano works of Berg and Webern, and the world premiere of Bruno Maderna's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra. His CD dedicated to George Crumb (Bridge) was nominated for a Grammy Award, and his CD with works by Adams and Rzewski (Stradivarius) received the Italian critics' award for Best Record in 2006. Emanuele Arciuli regularly performs at major concert halls and festivals, such as the Berliner Festwochen, Miller Theater New York, Miami Piano Festival, La Scala Milano, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, La Fenice Venice, and the Brescia and Bergamo International Festival. He has collaborated with internationally renowned orchestras such as the Indianapolis Symphony, Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira and the RAI National Symphony. In November 2012 he made his debut with Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. And in February 2013 he has just played with Brussels Philharmonic conducted by Wayne Marshall.  In December 2015 he will play at Concertgebouw in Amsterdam the world premiere of “Concertino per pianoforte” by Giacinto Scelsi.

Conductors with whom he has worked include Yoel Levi, James MacMillan, Kazushi Ono, Zoltan Pesko, Arturo Tamayo, and Mario Venzago. In May 2011, Emanuele Arciuli was awarded with the most important Italian critic's prize, the Premio Franco Abbiati. In winnig this prize, Emanuele Arciuli follows in the footsteps of Maurizio Pollini, Radu Lupu, and Zubin Mehta.


In the hands of the ardent Emanuele Arciuli everything has been conceived not as your conveniently neutral pitch-generator and theory tester but for the piano as its glorious self.

Richard Buell - The Boston Globe, 20 June 2000.


As for your performance of my piece (China Gates), it's really a marvel. You captured exactly the mood and emotion of the music. You certainly understand the piece perfectly and did me a great honor by performing it with such sensitivity. I am obviously now a "fan".

John Adams, Los Angeles, April 2000.
