Filippo Gorini

The Art of the Fugue
This international project, involving three countries, is the first in a series of events that Festival Bach Montreal will produce overseas. Festival Bach Montreal has collaborated with Oval Media on a series of digital projects that will be captured in unique and inspiring places. Pianist Filippo Gorini will be the project’s debut artist.

Filippo Gorini is a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award winner for 2020, a Trust that ‘rewards musical excellence’ and supports young artists with their artistic endeavours. This has allowed him to launch the project “The Art of Fugue Explored”, an interdisciplinary and multifaceted look at J. S. Bach’s unfinished masterpiece. The project will be presented internationally in the occasion of a live-streamed concert from the Turin Mole Antonelliana for the Festival Bach Montreal on November 29th, 2020.

Since winning the First Prize and Audience Prize at the Telekom-Beethoven Competition in Bonn in 2015, Italian pianist Filippo Gorini has enjoyed a steadily rising career. His concert appearances have drawn unanimous acclaim on many prestigious stages such as the Wigmore Hall London, Tonhalle Zurich, Meany Hall Seattle, Vancouver Playhouse, Berlin Konzerthaus, Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, Munich Herkulessaal, Società del Quartetto di Milano, and the Samsung Concert Hall in Seoul.

In 2020/21, Filippo will make his debut at the Festival Bach Montréal, the Concertgebouw, and the Marlboro Music Festival by personal invitation of Mitsuko Uchida. Filippo will also return to the Vancouver Recital and the Wigmore Hall for his solo recital.
