“Graceful, analytical, meticulous, Buratto is a name to watch.” — The Guardian
Since winning the 2015 Honens International Piano Competition, Italian pianist Luca Buratto has received warm praise. His debut recitals at Wigmore and Carnegie Hall heralded the pianist as “no ordinary virtuoso” (The Telegraph).
Described by International Piano Magazine as “masterly,” Buratto’s regarded interpretations of prolific British composer Thomas Adès reveal his versatility as “an artist who is both illuminating and unafraid.”
