Francesco Comito

“He is presently one of Italy’s most promising young pianists”– Lo Schermo di Lucca.
“He demonstrates an excellent technical quality, which always serves the music, never banal, but always daring”– Matteo Pappalardo of Gazzetta del Sud.
Francesco Comito’s brilliant musical talent manifested itself at a very early age and allowed him to start a busy performing career, playing concerts for several important musical associations as a soloist and in chamber ensembles. He progressed to winning several national and international competitions, and now his concerts are consistently receiving rave reviews and drawing enthusiastic audience reaction.
Season 2017-2018 is awarding him many wonderful performing opportunities including – to name just a few – a recent tour in Sao Paulo, Brazil, concert in St. Sepulcher Church in London, England, plus, back in Italy, appearances at Lucca Classica Music Festival and Musica in Pilotta in Parma.
He collaborates with Italian orchestras and is regularly invited to perform in prestigious venues, centres and festivals such as The Musikverein in Vienna, The Museum of Scriabin in Moscow, The Ravello Concert Society in Ravello and “Liszt and Friends” in Rome’s Chapel Borromini.
Francesco performed the world premiere of Andrea Massaria’s piano transcription of Giuseppe Tartini’s famous Violin Sonata in G minor ‘The Devil’s Trill’. This took place at the Teatro di Marcello in Rome during the Concerti del Tempietto Festival. Also in Rome, in April 2015, Francesco and his fellow-pianist sister Antonia performed a concert at the auditorium CASC Bank of Italy.
Other sought-after Italian engagements have brought him to Church of St. Agnes in Agone, in Piazza Navona, Rome. He has appeared in “Concerti del Tempietto” in Rome, in “Scenari” in Cosenza – Rende, in “Boccherini Open” Rassegna, and in “Percorsi Musicali d’Autunno” at the
concert hall of the Music Institute Boccherini in Lucca, and also “Filarmonica Laudamo” in Messina.
Francesco was born in 1990 in Messina, southern Italy, and began his musical studies at the age of three. At 11 he entered Conservatory in the class of professor Umberto Zamuner, and then continued his studies under Maestro Vincenzo Le Pera.
In September 2010, at 19, he graduated from the Conservatory Francesco Cilea in Reggio Calabria, with an honorable mention and later continued his musical training with Leonid Margarius.
Francesco is now mastering his skills under the guidance of Natalia Trull.
