Luca Buratto, 2015 Honens Prize Laureate, is a pianist of "fiery imagination and finesse" (Musical America). Upcoming orchestral engagements include the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and his La Scala debut with Orchestra Sinfonica Giuseppe Verdi. In summer 2016, Luca performed for the Progetto Martha Argerich at the Lugano Festival in Switzerland, Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, Busoni Festival Italy and was a resident artist at Marlboro Music Festival USA. In 2017, he gives his Wigmore Hall recital debut and the Hyperion label will release his all-Schumann album. His Live at Honens 2015 recording is currently available on the Honens label.
Luca Buratto’s affinity for the music of Robert Schumann is balanced by his curiosity for works of today’s composers such as Thomas Adès.

‘Violinist Tee Khoon Tang and friends transcend the ordinary’
‘performances like these leave listeners craving for more’
‘rarely does one find a performance that radiated such warmth and true feeling’

'Adrian Brendel is everything but a showman: his tone is clear and precise, leaning towards classical refinement, always exposing an acute understanding the composer's intentions...
One learnt more about Beethoven's artistic development in two hours than one might have from entire seminars devoted to this subject.'

'She (Hsin-Yun Huang) presented Bartok's Viola Concerto ... in a seamlessly expressive dramatic arch, characterised by an emphatically rhetorical brilliance and a warm tone,
which flashed forth, virtually violin-like, now and then;'
