Piano / Composition

Paolo Gorini's musicianship pursues the goal of inspiring the listener through the sound, his activity is based on the performing and the disclosure of the contemporary music production.

Sharing is a key word in Paolo's mindset, rather than a soloist career he has chosen a collaborative path: he performed alongside established contemporary music ensembles such as Sentieri Selvaggi (IT) and Nieuw Ensemble (NL), but he also crossed the boundaries of the classical music environment performing with pop pianists Hauschka (Milano Piano city 2015) and Ludovico Einaudi (Le Piano Africain – Verucchio Festival 2014).


Thanks to his commitment to the music of today and his concerns to the future of the musical expression, he founded the Ensemble Resilience: a visionary project that aim to renovate and to enhance the link between contemporary music and sound's technologies.


The chamber music is an essential part of Paolo's work, after moving to Amsterdam in November 2015 he started a collaboration with the Italian clarinet player Marco Danesi, their friendship and mutual esteem have led to the birth of the Duo Ebano. The winning of Storioni Toonzaal Prijs 2017 allowed them to gain the media attention with a radio performance from the Spiegelzaal of Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) and the participation to the radio program OPIUM.


He likes perform in unconventional venues where he can get close to the audience.

Especially with the Duo Ebano, he has played several times at Papageno Huis (Laren), Wijkontmoetingscentrum (Buitenveldert – Amsterdam) and other small cultural centers or churches that open their spaces for lunch concerts.


During his free time Paolo loves cooking and its exciting process of creation. This is the root of his compositional approach as well, the soul of his music is an alchemy of bare elements, shaping the emotions through the sounds. 


He lives in The Netherlands where he recently got the Master degree in classical piano with New music specialization at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
