"The powerful bass of Gianluca Buratto" (Washington Post)

Gianluca Buratto studied at the Milan Conservatory (Conservatorio di musica "Giuseppe Verdi") under the guidance of Margaret Hayward. In 2006, he won First Prize in the junior section of the “Ferruccio Tagliavini” competition and was invited to sing Verdi’s Requiem at the Festspielehaus in Bregenz and Mozart’s Requiem at the Graf-Zeppelin-Haus in Friedrichshafen. He also won the Rotary Prize for Vocal Chamber Music in 2008 in Milan. He made his operatic debut in 2009 in the world premiere of Solbiati’s Il carro e i canti at the Teatro Verdi in Trieste, and since then, has been in demand accross Europe, performing in venues such as Operhaus Zürich, Palau de les Arts, Valencia and La Fenice, Venice.

Buratto will be joined on stage at Wigmore Hall by South African pianist James Baillieu. Baillieu is no stranger to Rosenblatt Recitals, having accompanied Ben Johnson's recital last season. Described by The Daily Telegraph as "in a class of his own", Baillieu is a regular accompanist for many song competitions, winning prizes at the Wigmore Hall Song Competition, Das Lied Song Competition, Kathleen Ferrier and Richard Tauber Competitions, as well as giving regular solo and chamber recitals throughout Europe and further afield.

Coming up...
