Description: Gloria Campaner Tags: Gloria Campaner25 February 2016




Pianist Gloria Campaner (born in Venetia) is regarded by critics and public alike as one of the most interesting young pianists of the Italian new generation. Since her debut on stage at the age of twelve with the Venetian Symphony Orchestra, Gloria has been the first-prize recipient in more than twenty national and international piano competitions. Her rapidly advancing career as a soloist and chamber musician has led her to be a guest of some of the most prestigious festivals all over the world and the press have praised her ‘extremely deep musicality, remarkable fluidity, nuancing and sense of style which put her in the ranks of pianists with exceptional qualities’ (Walter Arlen, Los Angeles Times).


Gloria is a laureate of many competitions, and is also the 1st prize-winner and ‘Prokofiev Special Award’ recipient in the 2009 Ibla Grand Prize after which she made her US and Carnegie Hall débuts (2010).  In addition, Gloria has received scholarships from the Brahms Foundation (Baden-Baden, 2009) and has been awarded a Fellowship of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust (2014).


She earned her MMus with Bruno Mezzena (Music Academy, Pescara) and has performed in masterclasses with such distinguished musicians as Jerome Rose, Sergio Perticaroli, Pavel Gililov, Lilya Zilberstein, Dmitri Bashkirov, and Boris Petrushansky. Laterally, she focussed her studies on the Russian school under the guidance of Konstantin Bogino, while completing her studies at the Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe with Prof. Fany Solter.


Her debut CD of solo piano works by Schumann and Rachmaninov was released (EMI) in 2013, followed by an orchestral debut CD with Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 (2015).


In October 2009, Gloria was named 2010 - 2011 ‘European Ambassador for Culture’ as part of the cultural programme ‘Piano, Reflet de la Culture Europèenne’. 


As an official Steinway & Sons Artist Gloria has performed in the majority of the Steinway Halls around the world, including New York, London and Hamburg.
