Pianist Filippo Gorini is praised for his 'rare intellect, temperament... and vivid imagination'. In 2015, he won both the first and the audience price of the Telekom Beethoven Competition. After hearing his interpretation of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, Alfred Brendel took the young pianist under his wing. Recently he released his debut album with the Diabelli Variations. The album already won a Diapason d'Or.
