Stefania Passamonte

“Passamonte is quickly making a name for herself as a pianist to watch on the international classical music scene. With here majestic interpretation of Beethoven, and now Chopin, here audiences are left wanting more and wondering where will this talented performer take them next as her bright musical future continues to unfold on recordings and in concert halls worldwide.”
A successful recording artist and member of the Recording Academy in the USA, Stefania is a London based pianist from Italy. Regularly performing at major venues and with orchestras worldwide, her playing has been praised for its “powerfully emotive lines and an impresario air...a living, breathing performance that is nothing less than stunning.” 

“An unusually gifted young musician..”, Stefania has given solo recitals in the major international concert halls, many of which were televised broadcasts, including “St Martin in The Fields” in London, National Philharmonic of Ukraine in Kiev, “Sala Puccini” in Milan, Palau da Musica in Valencia, Sibelius Hall in Finland, Varna Opera Theatre in Bulgaria, Casa da Musica in Porto. Solo Concertos include the Lathi Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Ville Matjaeff, and the Varna Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Stefano Seghedoni.

“She has a virtuoso flair and a great imagination but most relevant of all is perhaps that she possesses a rare gift of communication”.
Selected to perform on the stage of the most famous International Piano Competitions as the Chopin Competition of Warsaw, the “Vladimir Horowitz” of Kiev, the “Maria Canals” of Barcelona and the “Jose' Iturbi” of Valencia in Spain, the Porto Competition in Portugal and Beethoven Klavierwettewerbe of Wien, Stefania won several awards and acknowledgements, among which the prestigious “Premio Ghirlandina” given by Modena to an artist “distinguished in the international panorama for special merits and success”.

"Stefania Passamonte performs...at such a high level of technical expertise, musicianship, and emotion that they deserve to stand next some of the most storied recordings made of these historic works.”
Her recordings with major works by Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms and the complete “Transcendental Studies” by Liszt released by Master Chord Records won great acclaim from press and audiences alike. Her albums are broadcasted by major Classical radios worldwide, including BBC Radio 3 in UK, while many solo recitals and concertos with the orchestra have been televised broadcasts, including RAI 3 and Sky TV in Italy, TVG in Spain, 1plus1 TV in Ukraine among the others.

“Italian born pianist Stefania Passamonte returns with another world-class album full of emotional and technically brilliant interpretations of some of the most beautiful and engaging works by Romantic composer Frédćric Chopin.”
