SUSANNA STEFANI CAETANI
Born in Florence, Susanna Stefani Caetani studied the piano from childhood with Antonio Beltrami, Clemente Terni and, for harmony, Carlo Prosperi. She later studied with Tatyana Nikolaieva at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and with Maria Curcio in London. She gave her first concert at the age of twelve, followed by a concert tour of Italy. In 1986 she performed a Mozart concerto in London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and in Dublin’s National Concert Hall, and from 1987 to 1995 played in almost every concert season of Siena’s Accademia Chigiana. Her career brought a concert tour of Russia in 1989 and her repertoire has included Mosolov’s Piano Concerto No. 1, which she has performed widely. Her recording of Pizzetti’s Piano Concerto Canti della Stagione Alta is a world first and she has performed the work with different orchestras throughout Europe. A regular performer with different chamber ensembles, she played in 2005 with the Quartetto di Roma for the Italian President, a concert which was broadcast all over Europe. She has been married to the conductor Oleg Caetani since 1999.
