Pianist Paolo Vairo was born in Como, Italy. He has already acquired great recognition from audiences and music critics as a musician of uncommon brilliance and sensitivity.
He regularly tours in Europe, Russia, the United States, Canada and Asia.
He holds a Terminal Degree in Piano Performance from Conservatorio “G. Verdi” in Milan, Italy. In 2001 he moved to the USA where he obtained a Master's degree in Piano Performance at Temple University, Philadelphia.
Mr. Vairo has dedicated himself to the music of Robert Schumann and his efforts have led to a large-scale project, which has culminated into a series of solo and lecture recitals. Between 2006 and 2010 he had been performing and lecturing on Schumann’s works. Since 2008 he was invited yearly to perform recitals and lecture-recitals in Vancouver, Canada and he traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia at the invitation of the Music Encore Arts International to perform and present master classes at the Tzar’s Village Music Festival.
Since 2012, Mr. Vairo expanded his concert career in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. He also presented solo recitals, lecture-recitals, master classes and workshops at numerous institutions like the Hong Kong Baptist University, the HK PPEA and the University of the Arts in Taipei. Re-engagements have followed. His presence as a jury member at the International Hong Kong Open Piano Competition, where he was also invited to conduct a masterclass and perform during the Awarding Ceremony, led to a new invitation in mainland China.
He is also the Artistic and Programming Co-Director of the Villa Carlotta Concert Series in Lake Como, Italy.
