Alessandro Stella

After having studied with Raffaella d'Esposito at the Saint Cecilia Conservatoire in Rome, where he graduated with honours, Alessandro Stella continued at the Academy for Advanced Studies in Cremona where, under the tutelage of Franco Scala (piano) and Mario Di Bari (music theory and composition), he again graduated with distinction. He then attended seminars and master classes with pianists of the caliber of Bruno Canino, Maria Joao Pires, Maurizio Pollini, Jean-Ives Thibaudet, Alexis Weissenberg and Christian Zacharias.
Exhibiting a perfect mastery of technique and style with a touch that's always clean and controlled, Alessandro Stella is capable of delivering a repertoire that ranges fully from the classics to the contemporary. To his activities as a solo artist he adds his intense involvement with chamber music and regularly plays together with Mauro Conti, Giorgia Milanesi, Raffaella Milanesi, Marco Rogliano and Giorgia Tomassi.
His concert appearances have brought him to many Italian and European cities and on numerous occasions these performances have been broadcast by important radio networks such as RAI, RSI and Vatican Radio. Alessandro Stella is also a regular guest artist at the Martha Argerich Project in Lugano, Switzerland.
Since 2005, he has collaborated assiduously with the Isabella Scelsi Foundation by holding many concerts and, among other things, by his dedicated passion for promoting the “rediscovery” by music lovers of Giacinto Scelsi's first artistic period.
Since 1998, he has been the music consultant to the Saint Louis de France Cultural Centre as well as the artistic director of the “Five Pearls of the Baroque Festival” in Rome which biennially hosts both acclaimed soloists and European ensembles.
All of his 2008 and 2010 recitals at the Martha Argerich Project in Lugano have been included in the yearly compilation series of CDs that EMI Classics dedicates to the project and his performances there received a warm welcome by international music critics.
Together with Giorgia Tomassi in 2009, he released a monographic CD on the KHA label dedicated to Maurice Ravel's music for two pianos.
Alessandro Stella's first solo CD, which is entirely dedicated to compositions by Edvard Grieg, was released by Ayre Classics in 2011.
