Born in Italy, Saskia Giorgini is considered one of the most interesting pianists of her generation. Winner of the International Mozart Competition in Salzburg in 2016, where she also got the special prize for the best interpretation of the specially commissioned new work, she has been featured in major festivals like Concerti del Quirinale (live broadcast on BBC Radio 3), MiTo Settembre Musica festival, Teatro La Fenice, Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto, Holland International Music Sessions, Società dei Concerti di Milano, Amici della Musica di Padova, Amici della Musica di Palermo and many others. Saskia has also performed with major orchestras around the world.
It has always been my intention to grow an international perspective to The Cumnock Tryst and this recital is a vital step along that path. It is especially heartening that this solo piano recital by one of the music world’s most exciting young figures will take place in New Cumnock. Saskia Giorgini’s recital will be one of this year’s Festival highlights.
