Luca Buratto

Luca Buratto, 2015 Honens Prize Laureate, is a pianist of “fiery imagination and finesse” (Musical America). Upcoming orchestral engagements include the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and his La Scala debut with Orchestra Sinfonica Giuseppe Verdi. In summer 2016 Buratto performed for the Progetto Martha Argerich at the Lugano Festival (Switzerland), Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival (Canada), Busoni Festival (Italy) and was a resident artist at Marlboro Music Festival (USA). In 2017, he gives his Wigmore Hall recital debut and the Hyperion label will release his all-Schumann album. His Live at Honens 2015 recording is currently available on the Honens label.

Buratto’s affinity for the music of Robert Schumann is balanced by his curiosity for works of today’s composers such as Thomas Adès. He enjoys jigsaw puzzles, table tennis and has an interest in physics and American post-modern literature.
