Aldo de Vero, Piano

Born and raised in Italy, Aldo de Vero studied piano at the S. Pietro a Majella Conservatory, at the Accademia Chigiana, and with renowned pianist Bruno Canino. He is a dedicated advocate of contemporary music and in particular of American Composers. He has performed many works by American composers in his solo recitals and with the Appalachian Ensemble including music by John Cage, George Crumb, Morton Feldman, Henry Cowell, Ernest Bloch, Samuel Barber and a rewarding first performance in Italy of “Three Quarter Tone Pieces” by Charles Ives for the 1994 G7 summit in Naples. His performances often include informative commentary on the composers, their pieces, and their places in musical history.

As director and conductor of the Coro Polifonico “S.Leonardo” di Procida, he has released a compact disc recording entitled “Fenesta che lucive” (PoloSud) of his own transcriptions of Neapolitan classic songs sung by the choir accompanied by non-traditional instruments.

Although focusing on his career as a pianist and chamber musician with worldwide performances, Aldo de Vero is also founding member of Key Largo (www.associazionekeylargo.it), an organization that produces musical events and chamber music workshops such as the engaging Ischia Chamber Music Festival (www.ischiachambermusic.org).
