Thomas Pandolfi

Thomas Pandolfi, piano

The young American pianist Thomas Pandolfi is an exciting virtuoso who, with each passing season, is becoming more and more sought after by audiences worldwide, and showered with superlatives by critics for his passionate artistry and amazing technique. His orchestral appearances often feature not only the beloved masterpiece concerti by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Liszt, but also the equally brilliant ones by Paderewski,
Rubinstein and Moszkowski. Additionally in the "Pops" genre, Thomas is considered a leading interpreter of the works of George Gershwin.

While the 2008-09 season marked Thomas' debut recitals in Canada, Germany and China, the 2009-10 season highlighted his debut in London, as well as return engagements throughout Eastern Europe, and concerts both as recitalist and soloist with orchestras across the United States. Pandolfi released his 6th CD album during the 2010-11 season, and returned to China in August of 2011 for his second tour of that country.

Additionally, he made his recital debut in Toronto during the 2011-12 season, as well as stepped in on 48 hour notice to perform the Rachmaninov Second Piano Concerto for The Alexandria Symphony's closing concert of that season. Last season, he performed a highly successful and acclaimed 15 state recital tour across the United States. 2013-14 will include another 15 state recital tour, as well as debuts with the Dubuque Symphony on their Gala Opening Night, The National Philharmonic at The Strathmore Music Center in Maryland, and the Wilson Symphony in North Carolina. He will reappear with Symphonicity on their Gala Opening concert at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach, as well as enjoy a return engagement with the St. Augustine Orchestra.

A graduate of The Juilliard School, Pandolfi earned both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees as a scholarship student.
