July 8, 2023 7:30 pm

Ida Pelliccioli was born in Bergamo, Italy. She studied at the Nice Conservatoire de Région and at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris: Alfred Cortot in the class of Serguei Markarov, Unesco Artist for Peace. During her studies, Ida Pelliccioli was awarded several scholarships, amongst them, one from the Zygmunt Zaleski Foundation and one from Fondation Albert Roussel.

Ida Pelliccioli participated in a number of master-classes, among others with Jean-Claude Pennetier, Gerard Wyss and received a double diploma in interpretation and pedagogy, at the École Normale in Paris.

She received artistic guidance from Norma Fisher who teaches at the Royal College of Music in London, Stephen Gutman, and she is one of  the rare pianists to have received guidance from  the Cuban concert pianist Jorge Luis Prats.

Ida chose to avoid the international competition circuit and, before becoming a full-time pianist, received a double master diploma at the Sorbonne University – in Italian Literature and in Ancient Greek History, specializing for the latter in the practice of music during the Hellenistic period.

Ida has been performing throughout Europe and Canada.  During the 2021/22 Season, she made her debut in Serbia, Luxembourg, Ireland and Romania. She will also debut in Switzerland in 2023 and Malta in 2024.

In 2021 Ida also took up a teaching position at Paris Conservatoire du 8ème arrondissement.

She will play a programme which aims to create echoes between the music of Debussy and the music of two composers that influenced him. On one hand, Rameau, which Debussy described as the pinnacle of the French tradition. On the other hand, Albeniz, as an example of how Debussy found an important source of inspiration in reimagining the music of foreign lands.

The full programme will be:

Rameau      – Suite in A minor from the “Nouvelles Suites pour clavecin”

Debussy      – Hommage à Rameau (Images – Book 1, L.110)

Albeniz       – Suite Antigua n°3 (Minuetto and Gavotte)

– Evening in Granada – Estampes, L.100
