One of the greatest pianists of recent decades; an angel who found himself on earth, only to return too soon to his heavenly home.

I am left with the memory of the purest of artists, a great poet of the keyboard.

Academy

The Dino Ciani Academy is an important part of the Dino Ciani Festival in Cortina and plays a fundamental role in the Association’s desire to commemorate the late Dino Ciani through developing young talent – the very talent which represents the future of classical music.

A rigorously selected group of young pianists, who come from all over the world, are given the opportunity to participate in daily Master Classes for piano repertoire, as well as Lieder and Chamber Music.

National and international virtuoso teachers are invited every year to give classes, while special guest artists from the Festival program itself are also invited to teach, creating an environment whereby all musicians – world renowned teachers, star artists, talented students – are encouraged to interact and collaborate in a friendly, yet professional exchange of musical ideas and dialogue.

Various concerts are organized throughout the Festival at different venues in and around Cortina where teachers and students perform together onstage.
