Bio


The charismatic Berlin based Italoargentinian pianist gives the music of her country of birth a central place in her performing repertoire. Besides this, it is taken for granted that she master the traditional classical repertoire too.She signed with majors like "Berlin Classics" and "SONY Classical", what bears witness to her quality and long years of dedication to her work. But now, she is going to focus on expanding her label "TANGO MALAMBO", since she always produced her recordings on her own. Her Label is now seeking for new artists and opportunities.Her recordings offer an interesting selection of argentinian composers (Piazzolla, Ginastera, Guastavino) and tangos, combining classic virtuosity and a big pianistic sound with elements of improvisational freedom.As a pianist, she is equally interested in solo perfomances and chamber music, presenting her innovative repertoire using her actress background to communicate with the audience.Her musical interests also include Avant-garde and Jazz and all these styles are expressed through the prism of her temperament, which come alive both in her performances and own compositions. Not only a few ones can't avoid the comparison of naming her "The Female Fazil Say".
