Andrea Rucli

Andrea Rucli has won awards in numerous piano competitions and regularly performs as both soloist and chamber musician. He perfected his skills under Konstantin Bogino and later worked as his assistant. Rucli and Bogino also give concerts together as a piano duo. Other chamber music partners have included Patrick Gallois, Radu Chisu, the Tartini Quartet and Vladimir Mendelssohn. Rucli has appeared at chamber music festivals all over Europe and performed as soloist with the Dubrovnik Festival Orchestra and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Udine. He has earned much respect as a musician, especially as someone who has promoted the music of the composer Ella von Schultz Adaiewsky (1846–1916). In the spring of 2011, he performed that composer's works reconstructed by Vladimir Mendelssohn at the Italian President's Palace as part of the acclaimed Quirinale series in Rome. In fact, he was also invited back there. Rucli has also actively promoted Finland and Finnish culture in Italy, owing to which he was awarded membership of the Finnish Kalevala Society and received official recognition from the Finnish Embassy.
