Emanuele Arciuli

Emanuele Arciuli has established himself as one of the most original

and interesting performers on today’s classical music scene. His

repertoire ranges from Bach to contemporary music, with a strong

affinity for composers from the United States. Having gained the respect

of distinguished composers such as Helmut Lachenmann and George

Crumb, Emanuele Arciuli has had many new works written for him,

including piano concertos by Michael Nyman, Lorenzo Ferrero, Filippo

Del Corno, Michele dall’Ongaro, Carlo Boccadoro and Louis W. Ballard,

whose “Indiana Concerto” he premiered in 2008 with the Indianapolis

Symphony Orchestra. 


Emanuele Arciuli continuously develops new projects and is in

constant pursuit of new ideas and innovative programs. “’Round

Midnight Variations,” a group of 16 compositions that were written

expressively for Arciuli by composers such as Babbitt, Rzewski, Torke,

Daugherty, Bolcom and Harbison, has recently sparked the interest of

international critics and is considered by some to be one of the most

significant contemporary American piano collections. The variations,

which were released by Stradivarius on CD under the title “’Round

Midnight - Hommage to Thelonious Monk” in May 2011, have been

celebrated by the international press. His special interest in Native

American cultures has impacted Emanuele Arciuli’s career, and resulted

in him commissioning works from a number of Native American

composers. His most recent project is called “Indian Gallery” and

features new works inspired by Native American visual art by

composers such as John Luther Adams, Michael Daugherty and Huang

Ruo. His numerous recordings include “Gates to Everywhere,” with

music by Carla Bley, Fred Hersch, and Chick Corea, the complete piano

works of Berg and Webern, and the world premiere of Bruno Maderna’s

Concerto for Piano and Orchestra. His CD dedicated to George Crumb

(Bridge) was nominated for a Grammy Award, and his CD with works

by Adams and Rzewski (Stradivarius) received the Italian critics’ award

for Best Record in 2006.

Emanuele Arciuli regularly performs at major concert halls and

festivals, such as the Berliner Festwochen, Miller Theater New York,

Miami Piano Festival, La Scala Milano, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, La

Fenice Venice and the Brescia and Bergamo International Festival. He

has collaborated with internationally renowned orchestras such as the

Indianapolis Symphony, Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, Orquestra

Sinfônica Brasileira and the RAI National Symphony.

Also a writer and musicologist, Emanuele Arciuli published “Rifugio

intermedio,” a book about contemporary piano music in Italy and the
