Maurizio Pollini Career

Life and career

Pollini was born in Milan to Italian rationalist architect Gino Pollini, who has been accused of bringing Modernist architecture to Italy in the 1930s, and his sister Renata Melotti (sister of Italian sculptor Fausto Melotti). Pollini started playing piano with Carlo Lonati until the age of 13, then with Carlo Vidusso until he was 18. He received a diploma from the Milan Conservatory and has won both the International Ettore Pozzoli Piano Competition in Seregno (Italy) in 1959 and the VI International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1960. Pollini was the finalists of the competition, according to Arthur Rubinstein, who supervised the jury. "That boy can play the piano better than any of us." Pollini did not perform for a year in order to broaden his musical knowledge, leading to erroneous allegations that he had become a recluse. Chopin's Concerto No. 2 was recorded shortly after, and he soon after that, he performed Chopin's Concerto No. 4. 1 in E minor with the Philharmonia Orchestra under Polish conductor Paul Kletzki for EMI, and taped recordings of Chopin's etudes. When Pollini first performed in a series of concerts, he experienced what EMI producer Peter Andry has described as "an apparent crisis of hope." He studied with Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, from whom he is said to have learned "a precise technique and emotional discipline," though some have expressed worry that Michelangeli's influence led to Pollini's playing becoming "mannered and cold." Pollini's early 1960s limited his concertizing, opting to spend these years learning by himself and expanding his repertoire.

He has performed recitals and appeared with orchestras in Europe, the United States, and the Far East since the mid-1960s. He made his American debut in 1968 and his first visit to Japan in 1974.

He wrote the entire first book of The Well-Tempered Clavier in 1985, on the occasion of Johann Sebastian Bach's tricentenary. He appeared at complete piano concertos of Ludwig van Beethoven with the Vienna Philharmonic under Claudio Abbado in 1987, and the orchestra's Honorary Ring was on display. He played his first complete Beethoven Sonatas cycle in Berlin and Munich, as well as in New York City, Milan, Paris, London, and Vienna. He opened "Protesto Pollini," a series of concerts in which old and new works are compared. In 2000–01, an analogous series "Performance: Maurizio Pollini" and "Pollini Project," a series of five concerts with programs ranging from Bach to Stockhausen, took place at Carnegie Hall. Pollini has promoted the success of little-known or forgotten works throughout his career.

Pollini had postponed all his forthcoming appearances in the United States due to health issues.

Pollini took part in the Kurhaus Wiesbaden Chopin's Preludes in 2014, including the Salzburg Festival and his debut at the Rheingau Musik Festival. (28) and Book 1 of Debussy's Preludes are included in Debussy's Preludes.

Pollini is the father of pianist and conductor Daniele Pollini.

Pollini's first recordings for Deutsche Grammophon in 1971 included Stravinsky's Trois mouvements de Petrouchka and Prokofiev's Seventh Sonata, which are also regarded as a landmark of twentieth century piano discography. Chopin's Etudes, Opp. Also under Deutsche Grammophon, ten and 25 were also under Deutsche Grammophon. On the occasion of his 75th birthday, Deutsche Grammophon released a 13-CD commemorative edition to commemorate the pianist's 60th birthday, as well as a complete version on 58 discs of his recordings for the label. In 2014, Beethoven Piano Sonatas was completed and was released in an 8-CD box set.

Pollini has been chastised for her emotional conservatism, despite being famous for an extraordinary technique. Maurizio Pollini has also stated that throughout his career, his greatest fear has been to represent the composer as accurately as possible in his interviews. He is unconcerned with his own feelings.

Pollini, a left-wing political activist, was active in the 1960s and 1970s. He collaborated with Luigi Nono on Como una ola de fuerza y luz (1972), which was to celebrate Luciano Cruz's accidental death, a leader of the Chilean Revolutionary Front. In an attempt to attract a new audience, Claudio Abbado performed at La Scala in a cycle of concerts for students and employees, he believed that art should be for everyone. When he mentioned Vietnam, at least one of Pollini's recitals was interrupted by audience protests and came to a halt on police involvement. Pollini has stated that he now has reservations about the way left-wing activists functioned in Italy, though he continues to identify with the left.
