Maurizio Pollini was born in Milan in 1942. He gained international recognition relatively early when he won the First Prize in the 1960 Warsaw Chopin Competition at age 18. His repertoire ranges from Bach to contemporary composers (including première performances of Manzoni, Nono and Sciarrino) and includes the complete Beethoven Sonatas, which he has performed in Berlin, Munich, Milan, New York, London, Vienna and Paris.

Pollini released his first recording in 1971: Stravinsky’s Three Movements from “Petrushka” and Prokofiev’s Seventh Sonata. He has gone on to record numerous works from the classical, romantic and contemporary repertoire. His recordings of the complete works for piano by Schoenberg, and of works by Berg, Webern, Manzoni, Nono, Boulez and Stockhausen are a testament to his great passion for  music of the 20th century.
