Combining exceptional lyricism and insight with consummate technique, Alessio Bax is without a doubt “among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public” (Gramophone). He catapulted to prominence with First Prize wins at both the Leeds and Hamamatsu International Piano Competitions, and is now a familiar face on four continents, not only as a recitalist and chamber musician, but as a concerto soloist who has appeared with more than 100 orchestras, including the London and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, Dallas and Cincinnati Symphonies, NHK Symphony in Japan, St. Petersburg Philharmonic with Yuri Temirkanov, and the City of Birmingham Symphony with Sir Simon Rattle.

This season, Bax makes his Boston Symphony Orchestra debut playing

Mozart’s C-minor concerto (K.491) under Sir Andrew Davis. He and the conductor reprise the same work for his Melbourne Symphony debut, on a spring tour of Australia and New Zealand that also sees the pianist lead Mozart’s B-flat major concerto (K.595) from the keyboard in his first performances with the Sydney Symphony, make his Auckland Philharmonia debut playing Grieg, and give a series of solo recitals. Other upcoming engagements include a Japanese tour featuring dates with the Tokyo Symphony, concerts in Israel, and numerous U.S. concerto collaborations. He rounds out the season with a full summer of festivals, highlighted by his debut at France’s International Chamber Music Festival of Salon-de-Provence and his return to Tuscany’s Incontri in Terra di Siena festival, where he serves as Artistic Director.
