Cristina Cavalli, Italian born, began studying music with Lidia Palo
Giorgi and graduated in Piano at the Conservatory “G. Nicolini” of
Piacenza and in Chamber Music at the Conservatory “B. Maderna”
of Cesena; alongside her academic path she attended courses and
masterclasses with notable musicians, among which most
important to her were the Italians Sergio Fiorentino, Pier Narciso
Masi and Marisa Somma. She continued her studies at the
Accademia Incontri col Maestro of Imola, where she obtained the
Master Diploma in Chamber Music. She appears frequently in
concerts both as soloist and as chamber music partner, in a
repertoire ranging from the 17th century to contemporary music.
Her interest in this latter has enabled her to enrich her musical
experience by taking part in important events; several works by
European and American composers have been dedicated to her,
and she is often asked to give the First Playing of new piano pieces
(Milan, Shanghai, London, Helsinki, Belgrade, Rome among
others). She has played for the Universities of Macerata, Piacenza
and Bologna and has recorded for the Italian national TV channels
RaiSat3, Canale10, and the Finnish Alfa TV; her performances
have been broadcasted by Radio Vaticana, Radio Belgrade and
many others.
As soloist and chamber musician she has appeared in important
venues in Europe and Asia, including Shanghai Symphony Hall,
Sala Verdi of Milan, Auditorium Parco della Musica of Rome, Wuxi
Grand Theatre and Shandong Grand Theatre (Jinan) in China, Zus
Concert Hall of Prague, Teatro Ateneo of Madrid, Teatro
Cavallerizza of Reggio Emilia, St. Martin in the Fields in London,
Sala Eutherpe and Auditorio Caja España of Léon and Teatro
Ruskaja of Rome, always drawing success and great feeling with
the audience. She performed in United Kingdom, Netherlands,
Finland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Serbia, Czech Republic,
Macedonia, China and Inner Mongolia; in May 2015 she made her
debut at Shanghai Symphony Hall with a very successful solo
recital, carrying on her first China Tour with concerts and
Ms Cavalli is an official member of ECMTA, European Chamber
Music Teachers’ Association (Helsinki), ILAMS, Ibero Latin

American Music Association (London) and she is also Honorary
Advisor of IIME, International Institute for Music Education (Hong
Kong). Parallel with traditional concert activities, she is constantly
collaborating with other artists to creative projects in which music is
combined and synthesized with different arts. In 2010 she
presented Mediterraneo, a musical journey along the coasts of the
Mediterranean Sea, starting from some Italian music suggestions
and ending with Flamenco. Between 2012 and 2014 she ran the
artistic direction of Chamber Music in Italy and Florestano in Roma.
In 2017 her last piano album Ritratti (Portraits) was among the
winners of Global Music Awards (Los Angeles).
In her vision, Ms. Cavalli privileges the development and diffusion
of classical music among people of all ages, country and condition;
because of this spirit of sharing, she is often involved in charity
initiatives, seeing music as a powerful way to improve and enrich
people and life, children’s life in particular.
Cristina currently lives in Madrid, where she is Piano and Chamber
Music professor at Musical Arts Madrid.
