The Amadeus Piano Duo, formed by pianists Valentina Fornari and Alberto Nosè, was born in 2014 from the will of the two interpreters to combine their important solo experiences and their musical maturity, to give life to a chamber music formation that has a brilliant concert career both in Italy and abroad. The eclectic piano duo, in addition to deepen the vast classical repertoire, is also very attentive to the discovery of original pieces by composers less known to the public; their concert programs range from Bach to jazz music and transcriptions, many of which are edited by themselves. They are regularly invited to hold masterclasses and to take part as jurors in national and international piano competitions. Also active in teaching, they founded the Accademia Amadeus for which they hold master classes for piano duo. They are organizers of the International Amadeus Piano Competition and founders of the independent record label Amadeus Sound Project for which they recorded their first album The Art of Amadeus Piano Duo. In 2021 the Velut Luna label released their second album dedicated to the original transcription for two pianos of The Planets by G. Holst.
Valentina Fornari graduated in piano at Trento Conservatory, as well as in music teaching and chamber music with full marks and honors. She then specialized in Music Therapy at the University of Bristol. Awarded in over 60 national and international competitions, she has a brilliant concert career with a predilection for chamber music that has led her to perform in the most important Italian and foreign cities. He collaborated with the soprano Stefania Bonfadelli and the violinist Vadim Brodsky and performs regularly with the first parts of the Orchestra of the Arena Foundation in Verona and the Orchestra of the Carlo Felice Theater Foundation in Genoa. Very active as a teacher, her piano school has led her students to win more than 250 prizes in national and international competitions, receiving awards for music teaching.
Alberto Nosè got his first international recognition at the age of eleven, winning the First Prize at the Jugend für Mozart Music Competition in Salzburg, thanks to which he made his first tour in Italy, Austria and France.
