Teo Gheorghiu

Teo Gheorghiu is very popular in Switzerland and in recent years has also established an international reputation. Piano News magazine recently described him as a “fabulous, mature, intelligent pianist”. Gheorghiu made his debut in the Zurich Tonhalle at the age of 12, playing Schumann’s Piano Concerto. Since then, he has cultivated a versatile repertoire and has performed with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Orquestra Sinfonica de Bilbao, the Danish National Symphony, the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of Moscow and the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra. He regularly collaborates with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and the Musikkollegium Winterthur. His solo recitals have taken him to all the main Swiss cities and also to London (the Wigmore Hall), Hamburg (the Elbphilharmonie), Tokyo (Suntory Hall), Milan (Societa del Quartetto) and Santiago, as well as to the Beethoven Festival in Bonn, the Dvořák Festival in Prague, to the Louvre and to festivals in Bucharest, Gstaad, Verbier, Lucerne and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

In 2020, the CD label Claves began a long-term collaboration with Teo Gheorghiu. Their first CD was entitled Duende and featured works by Enrique Granados, Isaac Albéniz, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and Manuel de Falla. It was acclaimed enthusiastically by the public and press alike and was honoured with the Diapason d’Or. His latest album, Roots, was inspired by a cycle tour that he undertook from his home town in the Zurich Oberland to the country of his ancestors, Romania.

Teo Gheorghiu was born in 1992. He won first prize at the San Marino International Piano Competition in 2004 and first prize at the International Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Weimar the following year. In 2010, he was awarded the Beethoven Ring by the Beethoven Festival in Bonn.
