Instrumentalists / Piano

Biography

Edoardo Turbil is considered one of the most brilliant Italian pianists of his generation. Praised by leading figures of the international music world, such as Paul Badura-Skoda or Solomon Mikowsky, who described him as an “excellent pianist, with sensitivity and a well-developed technique,” and “able to satisfy the highest artistic expectations,” Turbil has appeared—as recitalist, as soloist with orchestras, or in chamber ensembles—in the most important Italian and international concert halls and seasons, such as the Teatro Regio in Turin (with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the 1900s), the Festival of the Two Worlds in Spoleto, the Alte Oper Mozart Saal in Frankfurt, the “G. Verdi” Theater in Turin, the Sala Mozart of Accademia Filarmonica in Bologna, the Sala della Pergola and Municipal Theater in Florence, the Zunfthaus zur Waag in Zurich, the Albrizzi Palace in Venice, and also in San Jose, Santa Clara, Bern, Rome, etc. In 2011.

His vast repertoire, matured over many years of experience, ranges from the great classics to the works of more unusual composers such as Clementi, Janáček, Sinigaglia, Villa-Lobos, Debussy, Granados, Albéniz, de Falla, Stockhausen, Soler, and Say. Acclaimed for his light touch and his ability to paint suggestive musical narratives through a calibrated use of a vast palette of colors, Turbil is able to reinvent listeners’ expectations, exploring unusual yet deferential interpretative territories, by virtue of solid and reliable technical means.

Over the years, Turbil has received numerous awards and prizes, including the Gold Medal with High Distinction at the 5th Manhattan International Music Competition, the third Grand Prize and the prize for the best performance of a Baroque work (with Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonatas) at the Chicago International Music Competition 2021, the first prize at the 28th World Music Competition 2020 in the piano solo discipline, the first place at the American Protégé International Piano and String Competition, the nomination at the German Piano Award 2013, the Special Prize at the “Arcangelo Speranza” International Piano Competition in Taranto, the first prize at the International Bach Competition in Sestri Levante at the age of 10, etc.

Performance projects, activities, and masterclasses—in America and Europe—have provided Turbil with the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from renowned artists such as Andrea Lucchesini, Giovanni Nesi, Alexander Lonquich, Ronan O’Hara, Anton Nel, William Wolfram, Pietro De Maria, Joel Sachs, Xue Su, Federica Bortoluzzi, Daniel Hass, Pavel Gililov, Francesco Ivan Ciampa, Adrian Pinzaru, Federico Nicoletta, Aleck Carratta, etc. For many years, Turbil has played in duo with the Italian cellist Miriam Prandi, with whom he gave innumerable concerts in different parts of Europe and America.

In 2021, Turbil graduated from the DMA Doctor of Musical Arts CV Starr Piano Performance Program, in the studio of Juilliard piano chair Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky. Turbil wrote his Juilliard DMA dissertation on the music of the unjustly neglected Italian-Jewish composer Leone Sinigaglia (1868 – 1944): “Leone Sinigaglia: A rediscovery of Brahms’s Italian Apostle.” The dissertation won the 2021 Juilliard Richard F. French Doctoral Prize.

In the 2021/22 season, Turbil will publish three new album releases, with Da Vinci Records, KNS Classical, and Centaur Records, dedicated to the music of Sinigaglia, Brahms, Debussy, Clementi, Prokofiev, Bach-Busoni, and Villa-Lobos.
