Biography

Artur Pizarro (born Lisbon, 1968) is a Portuguese pianist of international acclaim. He performs internationally in solo recitals, in duos, with chamber music groups, and as a soloist with the world’s leading orchestras. He has an extensive discography available on Linn Records, as well as on Naxos, Hyperion, Collins Classics, and other labels. Pizarro is represented by Tom Croxon Management.[2][3] and is a Yamaha-supported artist.

Artur Pizarro began his piano studies in Lisbon with Campos Coelho, professor of piano at the Lisbon Conservatory of Music, at age three. At age five, he began studying with pianist Sequeira Costa, also in Lisbon.[5] In 1977, after Sequeira Costa accepted a position as Distinguished Professor of Piano at the University of Kansas,[6] Artur followed him to Lawrence, Kansas, in the United States. He continued working with Sequeira Costa until 1990, except for a brief interruption during which Artur also worked with other teachers, including Aldo Ciccolini at the Conservatoire de Paris.

Artur Pizarro gave his first public performance at the age of three, at the Lisbon Conservatory of Music. He made his television début on Portuguese television at the age of four. He refrained from public performance for the next nine years, while he concentrated on his music studies. The young Pizarro began performing publicly again at the age of 13 with a recital début at the São Luíz Theatre in Lisbon and made his concerto debut with the Gulbenkian Orchestra later in the same year.
