It is a difficult task to give an accurate idea of the rich and multifaceted musical personality of Marco Tezza in just a few lines. An excellent academic training (top marks, honours and mentions of honor in Italy and "Diplome Superieur d' Execution" at the Ecole Normale Alfred Cortot in Paris) and important awards from the most prestigious piano competitions, including Washington, Pretoria, Busoni, Viotti are just the background.

Tezza's intense activity lead him to play in famous concert halls and with some of the finest musicians (Ashkenazy, Ughi, Hogwood...) around the world. After studying violin and conducting, he also began a career leading important ensembles in Europe, Asia, America, and often doubling his role as conductor and soloist. Tezza, the conductor explored a vast repertoire from the Baroque to the contemporary music, passing through the opera (Boheme, Vascello Fantasma) and giving particular attention to the Piazzolla's music (Maria de Buenos Aires).

As an artist with a strong personality, Tezza never stops looking through the score finding unique ways and new sonorities applied to the performing gesture.

He has been invited to hold masterclasses at important institutes such as University of S. Esprit in Beirut (Lebanon), the "Victorian College of the Arts" in Melbourne (Australia), and in USA at the University of South Florida, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, Southern Oregon University, UNEAC La Habana in Cuba, USP University (Brazil), the Jazeps Vitols Latvian Academy in Riga, Conservatory and NBU of Sofia (Bulgaria).

Tezza is the permanent artistic director of the Stravinskij Chamber Orchestra. He has recorded for AS disc, Balkanton, Klingsor and OnClassical.

Tezza is often invited to be part of juries of international competitions. He is a member of the Accademia Veneta of Arts and Science and Permanent Professor of Piano at the Conservatory "Arrigo Pedrollo" in Vicenza.

I could rarely listen to a Schumann's piece played in such a profond and authentic way by a so young pianist.
- Tatiana Nikolaieva

Tezza posesses an extraordinary technical preparation which enables him to achieve the perfect sound which is a feat so rarely found in young italian pianists. For one so young he also posesses a dramatic vision of music giving it the sensation of a cosmic tragedy in the fight between good and evil.
- Piero Rattalino, Piano Time

I consider Marco Tezza one of the most brilliant young Italian pianists of our times. His talent is manifested in his capacity to make a music so profound illustrating a rich life and a search for perfection so intense.
