Welcome on board to @D Major Tv to Elena Piccione! Elena began playing the piano at the age of seven under the guidance Prof. Stefania Tigossi. She identified and encouraged Elena’s talent and, in that same year, she began performing both solo repertoire and chamber music, making her concert début as enfant prodige at Teatro Aycardi in Finalborgo. A child prodigy, at the age of twelve Elena gave her first solo recital at the Piaggio Aero Industries, live broadcasted for thousands people. One year later she entered the Conservatorio di Musica “N. Paganini” in Genoa to commence a performance degree. Elena’s progress was accelerated and at the age of eighteen she graduated with a Master’s Degree in Pianoforte with top marks, together with her high school diploma, with specialization in Science. After her graduation at the conservatory, she chose to take a few years sabbatical to study history, literature, philosophy, linguistics, psychology, and fundamentally reworked her piano technique with Prof. Giovanni Alvino, with whom she has performed the Complete Works for Piano Four-Hands by W. A. Mozart. Later she met and studied with the legendary pianist Andrei Gavrilov. She has performed in many important venues and festivals in Italy and Europe. They include Lucca Chamber Music Festival, Journée Mondiale de la Philosophie at UNESCO 2005, Lions International, Mozart Festival in Rovereto, Camogli Festival, Alassio Festival, A.Gi.Mus., Stresa International Music Festival “Dino Ciani”, “Dino Ciani” Concerts in Milan, in collaboration with the Venice Biennale. She has performed at the Full Moon Concerts at the WMDC in Rotterdam and at the Universitat Mozarteum in Salzburg, in addition to Asia and America. Her extensive repertoire, ranging from baroque to contemporary music, includes the complete mazurkas, waltzes, nocturnes and ballades by Chopin, the complete trios and piano sonatas by Mozart, great works as well as rarities by Russian composers.
