Cristina Casale

CRISTINA CASALE had her first contact with the piano at the age of four, under the supervision of her mother.

Spanish music has always been present in her career. In her early years she received several prizes in Spain and Italy for her Spanish music interpretations and has toured in major cities across Europe, United States and South America.

She has studied with Moscow Conservatory professors Ilze Graubin and Irina Zaritzkaja, French Pianist Emmanuel Ferrer and 20th Century Spanish Piano Legend Alicia de Larrocha.

During ten years she reduced drastically her concerts to live maternity and dedicate time to her children. On 2014 she returned to stage and made her debut at Carnegie Hall, in New York, within a U.S.A concert tour sponsored by Freixenet.

In 2016 she met the composer Abraham Espinosa and became fascinated with a Music History Discovery: the first piano Concert Etudes with Flamenco influences. These pieces, full of beauty and virtuosism, have seduced all kind of public including the specialized critic, which labels these Etudes as the Spanish Music from 21st century, continuing Falla's and Granados' heritage.
