Album Notes
"Classical music never looked so hot."

St. John (USVI) - Sun Times, Dec 2004

"Charismatic and communicative [Gargiulo] confirmed all the praises written about him in Italy and abroad with his acclaimed performances."

La Fiamma (Australia), Apr 2005

Julian Lawrence Gargiulo is a dynamic classical pianist who renders the compositions of renowned masters with extraordinary passion and precision, and fills the concert hall with his personal brand of charm, humor and charisma. He has performed in the United States, Italy, France, Germany, Russia and Australia, meeting always both public and critical acclaim.

After his Washington debut at the U.S. State Department, reviewers said "...Mr. Gargiulo's powerful energy enveloped his audience." (State Magazine)

In Germany "...all the elements for an international career are present: talent, musicality, technique and charisma." (Garmisch-Partenkirchner Tagblatt)

In Italy "...a romantic pianist with a particular sensibility for Schumann...his Beethoven was rich in textural subtleties...an exquisite Gershwin..." (L'Arena di Verona)

By invitation, Mr. Gargiulo has performed three seasons at Weill Hall at Carnegie Recital Hall, one of which was recorded by RAI-International Television. In addition to an intense schedule of solo engagements, Mr. Gargiulo frequently performs with instrumentalists and singers. Recent collaborations with diverse talents include performances with soprano Olga Makarina of the Metropolitan Opera, choreographer Neta Pulvermacher, composer-conductor Octavio Vazquez and trumpet player Josef Burgstaller (former member of the Canadian Brass).

Born and educated in Italy, his studies began at the Verona State Conservatory, and continued at the Academy in Rome. After a one-year internship at the Moscow State Conservatory, he came to the United States, where he received his Bachelor's Degree from Rowan University, his Master's Degree at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, and in 2001 completed his Doctor of Musical Arts Degree at the University of Maryland. His principal teachers were Randone, Ciccolini, Mezhlumov, Zuponcic, Slutsky, and Rodriguez. Mr. Gargiulo currently resides in New York City and serves on the piano faculty at the Westerhoff School of Music and is Director of the Sacred Heart Concert Series of Mt. Vernon, a program he founded that brings classical music into non-traditional realms.

Recent and upcoming highlights this season include release of his third CD 'ONLY' with works of Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt, Rachmaninoff and Scriabin, a one-hour special interview with RTN television in New York, return tours of Italy, western United States and the Caribbean, and a performance at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall in December.

When pianos breathe...
You'd think I learned from his 'Romantic' album to have high expectations of this artist. I don't mean to offend anyone, but I really used to detest Satie (too self-absorbed and 'whiney' for me), and was generally bored by Pathetique for all its overexposure. What a topsy-turn of events, then, that I have come to love this album more than any I have -- even my adored EMI of Richter doing Schubert and Dvorjak. It's almost a betrayal to find I can love a man I despised, for now Satie has breathed his human insecurities and sympathies in a rhythm that is exactly the natural exhale and involuntary intake of surprise, dismay, grief, and desire -- of crying or making love. It conveys what is expired and inspired in every sense. (Sigh). The Pathetique has shaken its fusty old cloak and come out dressed to dazzle (be careful of a slight shock when the album wraps on replay from the lullaby of Gymnopedie back to the first chord of Pathetique!). The Tarantella is a wonderful romp. The Scriabin prelude no 14 scatters flashes of lightning in a summer storm, precarious and perfectly exciting. But the jewels in this treasure trove are the Schubert impromptu no 2 which swings and sweeps with motion like a comet slung round the gravity of a planet... and a rare, extraordinarily soft and supple Scriabin prelude no 15 of the most expressive clarity and sensitivity. This CD has traveled through many skies and landscapes with me now, turning each ride into a journey. It stays with me always.
