Francesco Piemontesi, piano
BBC Symphony Orchestra / Jiri Belohlave

New Naïve signing, Francesco Piemontesi, born in 1983, is one of today's most-watched pianists. His debut album on naïve features the Schumann Piano Concerto and the original version of the Dvorák Piano Concerto, a work seldom performed due to its sheer technical difficulty. Conducted by Jiri Belohlávek with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the album was recorded at BBC Maida Vale studios (Dvorák) and live in concert at the Barbican (Schumann) in December 2012 and continues the blossoming relationship between soloist, conductor and orchestra, begun in 2010, with Strauss's 'Burleske'.

Piemontesi was voted Best Newcomer at the 2012 BBC Music Magazine Awards. In presenting his student with the award, Alfred Brendel praised "a young pianist with real talent, a pianist of natural poise and grace, of wonderful technical equipment, and of the ability to remind us ̀what beautiful playing means: cantabile playing that is colourful, luminous and harmonious, without in the least lacking tension and atmosphere."

Piemontesi has been a prize-winner at numerous international competitions including the Queen Elisabeth in Brussels, and in 2009 was awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship as well as being named by the BBC as one of its New Generation Artists.
