Alessandro Riccardi is an Artist Diploma student from Italy!

“I’ve being playing the piano for 20 years. I started because I was inspired by my mother who sings and I wanted to be able to play along her. Then I had the chance to attend a Krystian Zimerman recital in Florence and I decided to become a concert pianist!

“My fondest memory at Ball State so far is the recording of my first piano album “The Young Scriabin” which took place in Sursa Hall this fall. I had the opportunity to realize a very professional recording assisted by my teacher, Dr. Robert Palmer, and Dr. Christoph Thompson as sound engineer. The CD will be published in February-March 2020, and thanks to the many “humans of Ball State School of Music”, I am sure it will be a wonderful and professional product.” 📸 @dzellidesign
