Four-handed magic effect: Fornari and Nosè give emotions.
The Amadeus Piano Duo offered an intense and virtuous program with very profound moments of a sublime poetic level.
(L’Arena, 26 September 2020)
The Amadeus Piano Duo, formed by the Veronese pianists Valentina Fornari and Alberto Nosè, was born in 2014 from the will of the two interpreters to combine their important solo experiences and their musical maturity, to give life to a chamber music formation that has a brilliant concert career both in Italy and abroad.
The eclectic piano duo, in addition to deepening the vast classical repertoire, is also very attentive to the discovery of original pieces by composers less known to the general public; their concert programs range from Bach to jazz music and transcriptions, many of which are edited by themselves.
They are regularly invited to hold masterclasses and to take part as jurors in national and international piano competitions.
Also active in the field of teaching, they founded the Amadeus Academy for which they hold master classes for piano duo.
They are organizers of the international piano competition Amadeus Competition and founders of the independent record label Amadeus Sound Project for which they recorded their first album The Art of Amadeus Piano Duo.
In 2021 the Velut Luna label released their second album dedicated to the original transcription for two pianos of The Planets by G. Holst.
