Described by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram as an "aristocrat of the piano", Luigi Carroccia is recognized as one of the most promising Italian pianists of his generation and his interpretations, characterized by marked lyricism and great communicativeness, have aroused great interest among critics.
Luigi has won numerous prizes in national and international competitions, including the "Virtuoso Prize" at the "Vendome Piano Prize" which takes place during the Verbier Festival and the "Abbado Prize" organized by the Italian Ministry of Culture in memory of Claudio Abbado. He also distinguished himself at the “F. Busoni Competition" in Bolzano, the "Cliburn Competition" in Fort Worth and the “Fryderyk Chopin Competition" in Warsaw where he received the attention and appreciation of musicians such as K. Zimerman and M. Argerich.
His performing activity has seen him regularly engaged in Italy and abroad in festivals such as the Duszniki International Chopin Piano Festival, the Miami International Piano Festival, the Dresdner Musikfestspiele and on stages such as the Ishibashi Memorial Hall of the University of Tokyo, Flagey in Brussels, the Symphony Hall in Birmingham, the Sale Apollinee of the Theater La Fenice in Venice and the Salle Bourgie in Montreal.
Luigi began his musical studies under the guidance of his father and grandfather, both musicians. His artistic maturation then continued at the "C. Monteverdi" Conservatory in Bolzano, where he obtained his Diploma in Piano with full marks and honors and his Master's Degree with full marks and honorable mention. In 2016 he was admitted with Full Merit Scholarship and Junior Fellowship at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire where he attended a Post-graduate PSP in Piano performance.
From 2018 to 2022 Luigi has been Artist in Residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Waterloo under the guidance of Louis Lortie.
