Belgrade: Pianist Giuseppe Albanese in concert

Pianist Giuseppe Albanese brought his music to Belgrade and Podgorica thanks to the cooperation between the Belgrade Italian Cultural Institute, the “G. Tartini” Conservatory of Trieste and the Italian Embassy in Montenegro. Albanese, one of the most famous pianists of his generation, held two concerts there. The first was performed at the Belgrade Italian Cultural Institute and the second at the Hilton Hotel in Podgorica. Albanese, with a degree in philosophy, was appointed adjunct professor of “Methodology of Musical Communication” at the University of Messina aged just 25. He has won awards at the most prestigious national and international competitions and was invited to perform at recitals and concerts in important international venues such as the Metropolitan Museum, the Rockefeller University and the Steinway Hall in New York. Some of the more acclaimed festivals he has played in include the Winter Arts Square with Yuri Temirkanov in Saint Petersburg, the Castleton Festival founded by Lorin Maazel (USA), the Colmar Festival, En Blanco y Negro in Mexico City and the Sintra Festival (Portugal). In Italy, he has performed in all the most important concert seasons and at the best theatres. He currently teaches piano at the “Tartini” Conservatory in Trieste. 

Still within the scope of the joint project between the Tartini Conservatory, the Faculty of Music in Belgrade and the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, another concert with music by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Dimitri Romano, Milan Mihajlović, Svetlana Savić and Vasilije Mokranjac will be held in the lobby of the National Museum in Belgrade on Sunday, 30 June. The concert forms part of the Concerti dell’ amicizia cycle (friendship concerts) to celebrate the conclusion of the 2017-2019 stage of the k107 Erasmus project, and will be held in the four cities involved – Sarajevo, Minsk, Belgrade and Cetinje.
