“Avery Gagliano is extremely talented; she can transmit the joy of music, a rare gift indeed.” —Sir András Schiff

Celebrated as “a distinctive young talent” (International Piano), acclaimed pianist and recent Curtis graduate Avery Gagliano (’24) has joined the Curtis Artist Management roster for general management and worldwide representation. Recognized for interpretations with great emotional depth and a “distinctly narrative approach” (Miami International Piano Festival), Ms. Gagliano first rose to international acclaim as the winner of the first prize and best concerto prize at the 2020 National Chopin Piano Competition, and she has performed in prominent venues including Carnegie Hall, Warsaw Philharmonic Hall, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, Salle Cortot, Luxembourg Philharmonie, Ehrbar Saal in Vienna, and La Grange au Lac in Évian.

Ms. Gagliano’s upcoming engagements include performances with the Buffalo Philharmonic and Orchestra i Pomeriggi Musicali in Milan, as well as recitals in Miami, Key West, Washington, Vancouver, Berlin, and Warsaw. A finalist of the prestigious 2025 American Pianists Awards, she will also be featured as a soloist with the Indianapolis Symphony and the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra.

Ms. Gagliano’s debut album, Reflections (Steinway & Sons, 2021), features repertoire at the heart of her music-making, including works by Chopin, Haydn, Schumann, and Adès. Her interpretations of works by Chopin have been hailed as “revelatory” (New York Classical Review), while recent programs have featured her passion for Schubert’s late piano sonatas and highlighted lesser-known works. Her performances have been broadcast across the United States on leading radio programs such as Chicago’s WFMT, Philadelphia’s WRTI, NPR’s From The Top, and the celebrated American Public Media show Performance Today, where she is a 2024 Young Artist in Residence.

In recent seasons, Ms. Gagliano has appeared with orchestras such as the Louisville Orchestra, Maryland Symphony, and Rochester Symphony, as well as in recitals throughout Europe. She has performed at leading festivals, including the Verbier, Gilmore, Aspen, Bravo! Vail, Sanibel, and Miami International Piano festivals, and is an alumna of the Gstaad Piano Academy, Lieven Piano Foundation, and the Lang Lang International Music Foundation’s Young Scholars Program. A sought-after collaborator and dedicated chamber musician, she regularly shares the stage with ensembles such as the Balourdet Quartet and New York’s Jupiter Symphony Chamber Players.
