Martino Tirimo

Martino Tirimo at the Athens Festival, from the performance of Beethoven’s Concerto No.4 with the Vienna Philharmonic and Peter Schneider at the Herodes Atticus Odeon during the Olympic Games in 2004.


“Tirimo’s playing belongs to a past generation of ‘greats’.

Listening to him, I conjure up aural images of Solomon, Arrau, Kempff, Serkin, Schnabel and Rubinstein. Throughout the evening, one was consistently aware that this supreme musician placed himself entirely at the service of the composer and the printed score. The audience response to this communicator of the highest calibre was rapturous.”

Bill Newman, Music and Vision


“Tirimo is an inspiring poet of the piano.”

“His playing is among the most haunting and fascinating of all and the acme of musical refinement.”

“A pianist of vision.”

The Daily Telegraph


“A formidable virtuoso and one with unmistakable magnetism.”
