ELENA PICCIONE

Elena is a classical pianist, recording artist, educator and linguist. She is actively engaged in a number of activities ranging from recordings and performance
to research and development, education and artistic direction.

Elena began playing the piano at the age of seven under the guidance of Prof. Stefania Tigossi and that same year she began performing both solo repertoire
and chamber music. At the age of 12, she gave her first piano recital at Piaggio Aerospace (formerly Piaggio Aero Industries).
This was later to define her interest into taking classical music into a large variety of professional sectors.

She graduated with a Master's Degree in Piano at the age of 18 while attending Liceo Scientifico. In between her two degrees in piano at Conservatorio di Musica “Niccolò Paganini” of Genoa and in Foreign Languages and Literatures from Bologna University, she decided to completely rework her piano technique with Prof. Giovanni Alvino, with whom she also played the complete 4 hands piano works by Mozart. She spent these years teaching, broadening her repertoire, as well as enhancing her skills and understanding of the philosophy of music.

Her extensive repertoire, covering music written over the last 300 years, includes the complete mazurkas, waltzes, nocturnes and ballades by Chopin, the complete trios, piano sonatas and 4 hands piano works by Mozart, the complete suites by Händel, the complete piano works by Mussorgsky and Satie,
The Well-Tempered Clavier by J. S. Bach and little known pieces by South American, Russian and Ukrainian composers.

As an independent artist with a wide-ranging repertoire, Elena is committed to creating a recorded portfolio, for she believes the recording studio is a place
where she can fully express and document her musical ideas, free from the limitations of live performance.

Moreover, she is the founder of the AMI - ASSOCIAZIONE MOZART ITALIA in Finale Ligure, of which she was also president and artistic director,
and is a member of the ISME - INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR MUSIC EDUCATIONSEMPRE - SOCIETY FOR EDUCATION, MUSIC AND PSYCHOLOGY RESEARCH and ESCOM - EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR THE COGNITIVE SCIENCE OF MUSIC.

Her vision is to shape public opinion in regard to how art and culture in general and classical music in particular can contribute to a better world.
She is the Executive Director of ART IN CONVERSATION and President of CENTRUM - EDUCATION THROUGH MUSIC.
