Giorgia Alessandra Brustia
(Teaching Languages : Italian, English)
Giorgia Alessandra Brustia graduated from the G. Verdi Conservatoire in Turin under the tutelage of Anna Maria Cigoli. After graduating, she completed her training with several prestigious teachers, such as Franco Scala, Gyorgy Sandor and Marian Mika, a specialist in Chopin performance practice.
She also obtained the Level 2 Diploma Accademico at the 'Scientia et Ars' International Polytechnic in Vibo Valentia under Sergio Perticaroli.

An artist responsive to the demands of a very wide range of piano literature and curious about all its facets, she has not neglected less popular genres such as for instance the melologue, in addition to the more conventional forms of the solo, chamber and orchestral repertoires.

After a long-standing collaboration with Franca Fabbri, a memorable Violetta in Visconti and Bejart's 'Traviata', she recorded a series of melodramen by Schumann, Liszt e R. Strauss for Phoenix Classics that were very well received by reviewers in specialist magazines. Again for Phoenix Classics, she recorded Bartok's 'Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion' and, with the same ensemble, Stravinsky's 'The Rite of Spring', in a personal reinterpretation about which the reviewers praised its innovation and nuanced timbre innovation.

Among her most important collaborations, those with flautists Glauco Cambursano and Peter Lukas Graf, violinist Maya Jokanovic, trumpet player Gabriele Cassone, harmonicist Gianluca Littera and fellow pianist Damyan Tudzharov, with whom she regularly performs as part of an established piano duo, are deserving of mention.

She formed the Trio di Pavia with Marcello Defant and Alberto Drufuca. Their recordings of Arensky's Trios was awarded an honourable mention at the Web Concert Hall competition in the US. Their performance of the Complete Mozart Trios for Musica Rara in Milan for the Mozart year celebrations was received with the same amount of praise.

Chair of piano at the Vibo Valentia Music Conservatoire, she is a very active tutor for a number of prestigious musical associations. At the 'Ferruccio Busoni' academy in Fondi, she runs a biannual postgraduate course in collaboration with Gabriele Baldocci. Together they are part of the 'Martha Argerich Presents Project'. Many of her students have excelled in national and international piano competitions, and she is often a jury member at national and international piano competitions.

At the present time she performs in Trio with Franco Mezzena and Andrea Noferini.
