The site of GIOVANNI GROSSKOPF, composer and pianist

Giovanni Grosskopf has been performing in concerts as a pianist since 1985, and he loves to perform Bach (also with monographic programs on this author, following an approach which he illustrated in the paper "Bach at the piano: a lucky error", Rassegna Musicale Curci, January 1996), 18th century music, monographic programs dealing with rarely performed music (some Mozart's concertos in the original chamber music version, Schumann's op.133, and a program about Grieg's relationship with the Norwegian folk music, including his op.66 and op. 72, in collaboration with the Norwegian Embassy in Italy), the 20th century music, and contemporary music (also premiering some works), both as a soloist and with other musicians.

Among the composers he plays most frequently, there are Bach, Debussy, Schubert, Beethoven, Schumann, Grieg and many contemporary authors. He is also particularly fond of all the repertoire of the beginning of the 20th century.

He plays in a duo formed with the clarinetist Alessandro Travaglini. Their repertoire is oriented towards three directions: the 19th century, the first part of the 20th century, and the collaborations with the contemporary composers.
