"They can all play the notes rapidly and most can even get into the music. Carroccia was something different. […] He has that elusive who-knows-what that separates one artist from the others, and the chatter at intermission confirmed that the audience also realized the excellence we experienced."  Gregory Sullivan Isaacs

Described by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram as an "aristocrat of the piano", Luigi Carroccia has won numerous prizes in National and International Competitions, including the "Virtuoso Prize" at the Vendome Piano Prize held during the Verbier Festival and the "Premio Abbado" organized by the Italian Ministry of Culture in memory of Claudio Abbado. 

He also distinguished himself at the "Cliburn Competition" in Fort Worth, the "Ferruccio Busoni Competition" in Bolzano and “Fryderyk Chopin International Competition” in Warsaw where he received enthusiastic praise from both critics and musicians such as K. Zimerman and M. Argerich. 



Luigi undertook his musical studies under the guidance of his father and grandfather, both musicians. His artistic maturation then continued at the “C. Monteverdi” of Bolzano in the class of G. A. Brustia where he obtained his Piano Degrees with full marks and honor. In 2016 he received a Junior Fellowship from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and from 2018 to 2022 he was Artist in Residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Waterloo under the guidance of Louis Lortie. 



His concert activity has seen him regularly engaged in Italy and abroad for festivals such as the Duszniki International Chopin Piano Festival, the Miami International Piano Festival, the Dresdner Musikfestspiele and in halls such as the Ishibashi Memorial Hall of the University of Tokyo, Flagey in Brussels, the Symphony Hall in Birmingham, the Sala Apollinee of the Teatro La Fenice in Venice and the Salle Bourgie in Montreal.
