The 2016/17 season will remain a milestone in Ms. Rana’s career with the release of Bach’s Goldberg Variations on Warner Classics. The disc debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. Classical Charts and was praised by reviewers worldwide: in addition to being called “a supremely intelligent reading” by the Sunday Times, it garnered her the Gramophone Awards “Young Artist of the Year”. She toured with the Goldbergs with concerts in Paris’ Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, London’s Wigmore Hall, Berlin’s Konzerthaus, Aix en Provence Festival de Pâques, Tokyo’s Toppan Hall, San Francisco Performances, Porto’s Casa da Musica, Birmingham’s Town Hall, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, among other major venues.

In Summer 2017, Ms. Rana made notable debuts at the BBC Proms with Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC Symphony, in New York at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival with Louis Langrée, and at the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Vasily Petrenko.

An exclusive Warner Classics recording artist, Ms. Rana’s first album, released in Fall 2015, featured Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Antonio Pappano and Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. The disc received unanimous international acclaim; in addition to being named Gramophone’s “Editor’s Choice” and BBC Magazine’s “Recording of the Month”, it garnered Ms. Rana BBC Magazine’s 2017 “Newcomer Award”.

Beatrice Rana came to public attention in 2011 after winning First Prize and all special jury prizes at the Montreal International Competition. Her very promising career was brought to an even higher level in 2013 when she won the Silver Medal and the Audience Award at the 14th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.  In September 2015, she was named a BBC New Generation Artist, and in April 2016 she was awarded a fellowship from the Borletti-Buitoni Trust.

Born in Italy into a family of musicians, Ms. Rana began her piano studies at the age of four and made her orchestral debut at the age of nine, performing Bach Concerto in F Minor. She obtained her Piano Degree under the guidance of Benedetto Lupo, her lifetime mentor, at the Nino Rota Conservatory in Monopoli, where she also studied composition with Marco della Sciucca. She later studied with Arie Vardi at the Hochschule fur Musik in Hannover. She currently lives in Rome.

“A young pianist to watch.”
“Beatrice Rana possesses an old soul that belies her twenty years, and more than a touch of genius.”
Gramophone Magazine
“An artist one will want to keep an ear on.”
“There’s something of Martha Argerich about the way she combines chunky articulation and sparkling clarity with whimsical touches.”
The Times (London)
“There has been a lot of star-is-born noise around Beatrice Rana, and it might be justified. Teamed with Antonio Pappano and his Accademia di Santa Cecilia orchestra, she is a compelling storyteller: her playing has all the sustained force and perfectly weighted brilliance you could want, but has a glint in its eye, too.”
“[She has] a calm stillness that betokens perfectly relaxed technique and allows her to bring out the innate intelligence of her musical personality.”
“In a word? Beatrice Rana is fierce! And not only as a pianist but as a fully developed artist of a stature that belies her tender years… I can’t think of another recent concerto release that, beginning to end, affords greater pleasure.”
“She brought unerring grace to Mozart’s seemingly effortless, melodic inspiration and floated Mozartean figurations with lyric ease. In the slow movement [of the Jeunehomme concerto], which reveals depth of feeling through harmonic experimentation, Rana didn’t make the mistake of overdramatizing. And she demonstrated that the impetuous return to high spirits in the last movement really does belong to the young.”
“Beatrice Rana’s playing shows perfect control, clarity of sound and simple lyricism.”
FonoForum
“A round, full-bodied sound despite distinctly unpretentious playing.”
Bachtrack

“Beatrice Rana is an artist one can now expect great things from.”
Classica (Paris)
“Another new Goldbergs set, from another young pianist? Yes, and a really remarkable one it is too. Beatrice Rana’s interpretation of the familiar work is fresh, fun and reflective in turn. A life-affirming disc.” (Editor’s Choice)”
“What an explorer Beatrice Rana turns out to be. What a journey she takes the audience on. Never has a Santa Cecilia audience put itself in the hands of a recitalist so completely. We held our breaths as she brought this music alive as never before. Then there are the pianissimi. These are steely too. Don’t ask me how she does this. How can a pianist manage to be assertive and hushed in the same stroke? Beatrice Rana does. Imbuing the music with contradictory sounds is her art.”
“Nézet-Séguin’s invitation to the young Italian pianist, Beatrice Rana, to return to Montréal where she had won first prize in the 2011 Montreal International Musical Competition was inspired. Rana, who won second prize in the 2013 Van Cliburn Competition, is a pianist of powerful personality and musical lucidity. There is in her playing a free-flowing virtuosity that is allied to a richly nuanced sonority and an uncanny sense of atmosphere that make her interpretations both intriguing and memorable. Her playing, especially in the [Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 2]’s three monstrous cadenzas, was by turns haunting and urgent, powerful yet reasoned, the phrasing as convincing as the interpretation’s musical impulsion was irrepressible. Though she captured the work’s mordant sarcasm and percussive quality, it was never at the cost of tonal coherency…. It was indeed a performance of galvanizing energy and brilliance by all concerned.”
