The Italian pianist David Malusà has given recitals as a soloist and chamber musician across Europe, China and the USA. He is gathering acclaim as an accomplished interpreter of a wide range of styles, most notably late Classical and Romantic.
Having obtained a Diploma in Pianoforte in Vicenza, he continued his studies at The Royal College of Music in London, with Niel Immelman and Vanessa Latarche. David won the sixteenth Jaques Samuel Intercollegiate Piano Competition, and as a result of that, he made his debut recital at the Fazioli Concert Hall in Sacile as well as at the Wigmore Hall in London. A CD was released under S.W. Mitchell Capital records of his live Wigmore Hall recital.
Much in demand as a soloist with orchestra, David has performed extensively throughout the UK and internationally, most notably Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 1 with Orchestra Sinfonica Regional de Murcia (Victor Villegas Auditorium, Murcia), conducted by Beatriz Fernandez; and Chopin Andante Spianato et Grande Polonaise Brilliante Op. 22 with Orpheus Sinfonia, conducted by Thomas Carroll (St John’s Smith Square, London). He has recorded the complete solo piano repertoire by the British composer Robert Mansell and a CD has been released in 2022 for Quartz Records. David is often invited to give lecture recitals, and to be a jury member for a number of UK music competitions. He is currently a visiting teacher at Wellington College, Berkshire.
