FABIO MARTINO, Piano / “Magician at the Piano”
At the age of 5 he began playing his grandmother’s piano; she was a piano teacher in Sao Paulo. Seventeen years later – after intensive training at leading universities of music in Brazil and Germany Fabio Martino bought himself his rst Steinway grand piano. The money for this came, amongst other, from his rst major prize of 48,000 US$ at the BNDES International Piano Competition, the most important contest in Latin America.
In the meantime Fabio Martino has won more than 20 rst prizes in piano competitions. Martino doesn’t only draw in the audience with his virtuoso playing; he also thrills them with his South American charm. The piano shooting star is viewed as a cheeky but at the same time open challenger on the international pianist scene. He wears his hand-tied bow tie like a trademark.
His second album “PASSION”, a co-production with the German radio SWR in Baden-Baden, attracted worldwide attention and was awarded with top marks. As well as well- known works by Beethoven, Liszt and Schumann, which Fabio Martino interprets

in his own special emotional and inspirational manner, it also contains the world première recording of the light, full of temperament and pianistically demanding piece “Tico-Tico no fubá” arranged by Marc-André Hamelin. “This isn’t only virtuoso, it really rocks! Magni cent!” Guido Krawinkel in Klassik-Heute. In 2019 his third album “Latin Soul” is released. With powerful piano music full of joie de vivreand radiant sounds of the composers Villa-Lobos, Ginastera, Guastavino and Guarnieri, originating from Latin America, Fabio Martino also convinces here with his fabulous virtuosity.

As an international soloist Fabio Martino has played piano concertos by Prokofjew, Rachmaninov, Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann, Medtner, Bartók and many others. He was accompanied by famous orchestras like the Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira (OSB), State Orchestra of Sao Paulo (OSESP), Symphony Orchestra of the Bavarian Radio, Badischen Staatskapelle, Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra, Berliner Symphonic Orchestra, Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra, Czech Chamber Orchestra, to name just a few.
