                                    ABOUT CARLO GRANTE


 

 

Carlo Grante is an Italian classical pianist. He graduated at the National Academy of St Cecilia in Rome, studied at the University of Miami and at the Juilliard School in New York, moved to London, where he studied intensively with Alice Kezeradze-Pogorelich.


He is known as a performer of mainstream classical composers such as Liszt, Mozart, Scarlatti, as well as highly demanding late romantic and 20th-century composers such as Leopold Godowsky, Ferruccio Busoni, George Flynn, Roman Vlad, Paulo Troncon, Michael Finnissy, Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji.  His discography consists of more than 50 albums.

 


Carlo GRANTE is one of today's most active and popular recording pianists and his concert repertoire, which has also contributed to the appreciation of lesser-known works, is one of the largest among contemporary pianists. Die Presse (Vienna) has called him "a fearless, flawless knight of the piano from Italy."

"Carlo Grante's recital systematically demonstrated technical ability, but it was a prowess that went beyond muscle and speed. Here was not just attractive color but color with a purpose. The voicing in Debussy's chords explained their
character and direction. The separation of timbres clarified textures. Difficult passages were made not to sound difficult at all."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
