Enrico Elisi has established himself as one of the most passionate Italian pianists on the concert scene today and has been hailed for his mastery of elegance, refinement, and fantasy (La Nueva España). He regularly performs to acclaim throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia and his interpretations reveal “remarkable sensitivity, imagination, and polish,” (Baltimore Sun). He has appeared in historical settings such as La Fenice Theatre, Venice; Palazzo Vecchio, Florence; Bibiena Theatre, Mantua; and Pavarotti Opera House, Modena. Recent engagements include the Banff Centre for the Arts, Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, New York Public Library, New York’s Morgan Library, Washington’s National Gallery of Art and the Italian Embassy, as well as the Centro Cultural de España in Lima, Peru. He performed with several orchestras in the US, Italy, Portugal, and as a chamber musician, at the Taos and Ravinia Festivals. Elisi’s recitals have been broadcast on radio and TV programs in the US and Europe. Among his awards are top prizes in the Premio Venezia (Italy) and the Oporto International Competition (Portugal). A champion of new music, Elisi has commissioned works from many composers and premiered Paul Chihara’s Two Images, at Weill Hall (subsequently recorded for Albany Records).
