“Our first project combines works by Beethoven and Liszt, two composers who have influenced me a great deal musically. They embody what has fascinated and captivated me about the piano from the beginning: the ability to transpose an entire orchestra onto the keyboard and trace the complexity of a score in fine detail, as well as the idea of the instrument as a powerhouse of musical evolution.” – Sophie Pacini

Born in Munich in 1991, Sophie Pacini began her studies at the age of ten as a pupil of Karl-Heinz Kämmerling at the Salzburg Mozarteum, where she was accepted two years later by the newly founded Institute for Highly Gifted Students. From 2007 she continued her studies in master classes given by Pavel Gililov, completing her diploma in 2011 with honours. In 2010 she became acquainted with Martha Argerich, who invited her the following year to give a recital as part of the Martha Argerich Project in Lugano, and who has since become an important figure in the young pianist’s career.

“Sophie Pacini is a protégée of Martha Argerich and it shows… There’s a similar air of in-the-moment rhapsodising
and no fear of giving the performance a boot up the backside.”
- Gramophone
