Saskia Giorgini

Pianist Saskia Giorgini earned equal renown as a soloist, chamber player, and vocal accompanist early in her career. She has released several albums on the PentaTone Classics label. Giorgini was born in Turin, Italy, on February 25, 1985. Giorgini took up the piano at age four. She entered the Incontri col Maestro Piano Academy in Imola, Italy, when she was 15; her teachers there included Franco Scala and Louis Lortie. Giorgini went on to the Conservatorio di Torino with Claudio Voghera, graduating with top grades and honors. Giorgini took further specialized studies at the Accademia di Music di Pinerolo with Enrico Pace, the Kunstuniversität in Graz, Austria, with Julius Drake (in song accompaniment), and finally at the Mozarteum in Salzburg with Pavel Gililov. A breakthrough for Giorgini came in 2016 when she won the International Mozart Competition in Salzburg and also took a special prize for interpretation of a commissioned work. The following year, she made her debut at the Musikverein in Vienna, playing an all-Mozart recital. Since then, Giorgini has found engagements with such orchestras as the Lodz Philharmonic in Poland, CBC Radio Orchestra in Canada, and China's Wuhan Philharmonic Orchestra. Recitals and radio broadcasts have taken her to such venues as the Philharmonia in St. Petersburg, the Vancouver Summer Festival, and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. In demand as a chamber musician and accompanist, she has performed with such figures as tenor Ian Bostridge, violinist Janine Jansen, and clarinetist Martin Fröst. Giorgini recorded an album of piano music by George Enescu for the Piano Classics label in 2019 and then backed Bostridge on a pair of recordings on PentaTone Classics, one of Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin, D. 795, in 2020, and one of songs by Ottorino Respighi in 2021. Later that year, she released her solo debut on PentaTone, featuring Liszt's Harmonies poétiques et réligieuses.
