Genny Basso is a pianist born in Naples in 1984. He has been Aldo Ciccolini’s official assistant in his last international piano Masterclasses.
He got interested in music in his early childhood and after important learning experiences in Ireland and in England, he started studying under the direction of M. Luigi Averna, who belongs to Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli’ s School.
He graduated in Piano with full marks and honors at the Conservatorio “S. Pietro a Majella” of Naples. In 2013 he was admitted to the final year of the prestigious École Normale de Musique de Paris, attending France Clidat’s heir’s class, Paul Blacher.
He is regularly invited as a member of Jury for International contests.
He was President of Jury for the “Beethoven International Piano Competition Asia“ in February 2017 (Japan).
He regularly performs at international festivals and concert seasons – as recently at San Carlo Theatre – where, without forgetting his own origins, he often fuses classical music with his personal arrangements of Neapolitan songs.
