Nuccio Trotta - Pianist

"Music is a right, but only for those who deserve it

"It is not a profession to be a pianist and musician. It is a philosophy, a conception of life that cannot be based on good intentions or natural talent. First and foremost there must be a spirit of sacrifice."

Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli
Hi Dear Listener,

I'm an Italian concert pianist. I've studied with great teachers such as Aldo Ciccolini, and won in the past piano prizes.

I don't waste your time to speak about my curriculum. I hope that my music speak for me. On February 2007 I've decided to stop the concerts with a few remuneration for a respect of myself. You know that there are a lot of musician that play often for free and these situations are very sad. So now I work only for myself to record and upload pieces hoping to find an agency/promoter that seriously interested in me, wants engage me for concerts.This is for my surviving.

If you have any questions please write to me and for concerts contact me at Youtube, Skype or myspace.

Sincerely yours,

"Per me la musica rappresenta un viaggio al centro di me stesso che terminerà solo il mio ultimo giorno. La musica ci spoglia delle nostre meschinità facendoci apparire dinanzi a Lei nudi e puri. È un nostro dovere primario smettere vanità e qualsivoglia forma di pavoneggiamento quando ci accostiamo a Lei. Così solo speriamo di poter esserLe degni.

Perché non si debba strumentalizzare la musica ma noi diventare soltanto suo oggetto e messaggeri."

I movement: Allegro molto e con brio -
