Gabriele Rota received his diploma as a pianist at the Donizetti
Conservatoire in Bergamo with Tiziana Moneta as well as in Composition with Vittorio Fellegara. Following this, his studies continued in Biella and in Rome with Aldo Ciccolini who wrote of him: "His faculty of assimilating different styles is as miraculous as that of 'imprinting' in his fingers works of great difficulty. Gabriele Rota has all the qualities for an international career". Having achieved success in national and international competitions, he has performed in both Italy and abroad. Since 1986 Gabriele Rota has been forming as a piano duo with Tiziana Moneta - they are internationally renowned as one of the most interesting formations and are regular guests of the most prestigious European concert halls, also transmitted by national radio stations. Intense recording work of the Duo has resulted in CDs being produced on labels such as Sipario, Edipan, Tirreno and La Bottega Discantica which were extremely well received by both the public and critics.
Several of Gabriele Rota's works have been performed in Italy and abroad and have been published by Bèrben. The musical magazine Seicorde has recently chosen his Notturno and Divertissement for voice and guitar as "score of the month". Winner of State teaching competition, Gabriele Rota taught in Bari, Brescia and Vicenza, and at present teaches at the Verdi
Conservatoire in Milan.
