Salon Series offers intimate concerts with a new generation of classical musicians— this time with pianist Niccolò Ronchi. Niccolò Ronchi is a young Italian pianist who is highly appreciated by both critics and audiences for his incredible virtuosity, great expressiveness, and the communicative power of his interpretations. Despite his young age, he has gained recognition in many international contexts.

Niccolò started taking part in his first national and international piano competitions and execution prizes at an early age, immediately distinguishing himself on the national and international piano scene. His track record to date includes almost 70 placements at national and international competitions, 51 of which were first prizes.

In November 2006, Niccolò won the International Chopin Piano Competition, in Rome, distinguishing himself among 60 competitors from all around the world. This prize marked the start of a busy concert career, which brought him to some of the most prestigious theaters and concert halls in Italy, (Teatro la Fenice in Venice, Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, Sala Verdi in Milan), Germany, France, Spain, England, the US, Japan, China, Russia, and Australia.

His repertoire ranges from the Baroque to the late twentieth century, up to Ligeti. Niccolò expresses himself at his best in the repertoire of the Romantic period and of the Russian twentieth century. He also collaborates with contemporary composers, and he recently debuted at the Monfalcone Municipal Theatre, with the opera Palinodia Terza by Riccardo Fabris, a composer from Trieste.
