Aldo Ciccolini

Real Name:
Aldo Ciccolini
Profile:
French pianist, born August 15, 1925 in Naples, Italy, died February 1, 2015 in Asnières-sur-Seine, France.

Ciccolini was most appreciated for his interpretations of Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy and Erik Satie. But also for his performances from less-known composers such as Déodat De Séverac, Jules Massenet, Charles-Valentin Alkan and Alexis de Castillon. He's also well known for his Franz Liszt performances.

Aldo Ciccolini made a lot of recordings for Pathé Marconi EMI, including the complete piano works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven and Erik Satie.

He was awarded the Diapason d'Or for his recording of Leoš Janáček's complete piano work for Abeille Music and Robert Schumann's piano work on Cascavelle.
