Sandro Russo’s playing has often been referred to as a throwback to the grand tradition of elegant pianism and beautiful sound. Composer Lowell Liebermann wrote of him, “Sandro Russo is a musician's musician and a pianist's pianist. There is no technical challenge too great for him, but it is his musicianship that ultimately makes the greatest impression. His interpretations reveal a unique and profound artist at work.”

Born in San Giovanni Gemini, Italy, Mr. Russo displayed exceptional musical talent from an early age. He later entered the V. Bellini Conservatory, from where he graduated summa cum laude. He also earned the Pianoforte Performing Diploma from the Royal College of Music in London with honors. Soon after Mr. Russo moved to the United States in 2000, he won the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition, and has ever since performed in such prestigious concert halls as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Weill and Zankel halls at Carnegie Hall, Kilbourn Hall (Eastman Theatre), Salle Cortot in Paris, Teatro Politeama in Palermo, the Konzerthaus Berlin and Stoller Hall in Manchester (UK).

Mr. Russo’s performances have aired on all the major radio stations in the US and abroad. His previous recordings include Scarlatti Recreated – Transcriptions and Hommages and Russian Gems – Piano Rarities. The more recently released Steinway & Sons albums Rachmaninov – Solo Piano Works and Images et Mirages: Hommage à Debussy were both chosen “Disc of the Month” by Italy’s The Classic Voice magazine and the latter was also featured in Gramophone’s “Sounds of America.” Mr. Russo's latest recording on the Steinway label, Chopin: Late Masterpieces, was released in 2019.
