Italian pianist Jonathan Ferrucci has been playing music since he was five. He has played for and studied with many of the piano world’s masters. Angela Hewitt, in particular has been a strong advocate: “…she has been a continuing source of invaluable knowledge and encouragement, and a mentor in navigating the music world.”

Italian-Australian pianist Jonathan Ferrucci has given concerts as a soloist and chamber musician throughout Europe, Australia, the United States and Japan. In London he has performed in Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall, Milton Court Concert Hall and Drapers’ Hall.
As winner of the Jaques Samuel Intercollegiate Competition in 2016, his Wigmore recital was professionally recorded and he was invited to play at Fazioli Concert Hall in Italy. In 2018 he made his debut at Carnegie Weill Hall as part of the “Guildhall Artists in New York” project and was a winner at the International Bach Competition in Leipzig.
Jonathan studied at the Conservatory of Music in Florence with Giovanni Carmassi. In 2015 he moved to London to study with Joan Havill at the Guildhall, where he completed a Master’s degree and Artist Diploma, and now is an Artist Fellow. His studies have been generously supported by the Leverhulme Trust, Jessie Wakefield Award, Guildhall School Trust and the Tait Memorial Trust, whose prize he won at the Royal Overseas League competition in 2018.
Jonathan’s artistic development has been profoundly influenced by Aldo Ciccolini and Robert Levin, and by his ongoing studies with Angela Hewitt. He has participated in master classes with Murray Perahia, Richard Goode, Peter Frankl, Christian Zacharias, and Dimitri Bashkirov.
In 2015 Jonathan co-founded Made in Music, a non-profit organization, through which he organized two festivals bringing together young musicians from eight countries. He strongly believes that music is a universal language that can unite people from different cultures and backgrounds.
