Aquiles Delle Vigne

Aquiles Delle Vigne is an Argentine pianist, born in Buenos Aires. Despite his own claims,[1] there is no evidence of him having studied under the guidance of Claudio Arrau. He won the Grand Prix "Alberto Williams", which lead him to an international career. In Europe, Delle Vigne completed his studies with Eduardo del Pueyo and Georges Cziffra.

Claudio Arrau said about him: "I consider AQUILES DELLE VIGNE as one of the most brilliant and remarkable pianists of his generation. [...] He can be considered as one of the most important teachers today."[2] (New York)

Géorges Cziffra said about him: "Aquiles Delle Vigne possesses all the artistic and pedagogical qualities, allowing him to build sucessfully [sic?] a career as a pianist and teacher. Dazzling performance in concert of Ravel's concerto for the left hand. Great Artist."  (Senlis, 31st May 1985)

Aquiles Delle Vigne has performed piano solo recitals and with the major orchestras in the most prestigious hall all around the world. Some of his collaborations includes the baton of Lord Yehudi Menuhin, Alberto Lysy, Georges Octors, Leopold Hager, Lee Dong-ho, etc.

Invited as a jury member for international piano competitions in Pretoria, Casagrande, Sydney, Cincinnati, Texas, Paris, etc., his career as a pianist is edged by a restless love for teaching. He gives master classes at the International Sommerakademie Universität Mozarteum in Salzburg, Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory, Korsakov Saint Petersburg Conservatory, National University in Taipei, Central and China Conservatories of Beijing, Toho University in Tokyo, Universities in Seoul, Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, Hochschules in München, Karlsruhe and Hamburg, Juilliard School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, Hartt School of Music, etc.

Aquiles Delle Vigne has recorded for EMI His Master's Voice, Naxos, BMG-RCA Victor, BASF Harmonia Mundi, Pavane and EMS. His complete recording of Franz Liszt's 12 Etudes d'execution transcendante has been reviewed as "probably the best interpretation of these etudes since Arrau"[3] His most recent recording features Ludwig van Beethoven's complete Piano Sonatas.
