Not satisfied with playing the whole Opus 68 Marco Tezza also investigated in German archives to find out the pieces Schumann composed for his daughter Marie’s seven birthday, and other pieces, printed in 1924 and 1958, revisited by Clara after her husband’s death.
This integral version is quite original. Says Cesare Galla: "Facing such a huge musical material, the pianist has chosen linear evidences in sound but great flexibility in phrasing. In this way he gets two goals: he underlines the essential poetry, but doesn’t banalize idiom, thus always supporting shapely phrases, not rethorical but full of nuances, impetuous when necessary, but also capable of a really significant tenderness. In this way the wide range of the recital is supported by a focused communicative tension, which hits the center of the style of this kind of music: not banalizing its semplicity, but not going beyond its intimate meaning. In a word Tezza gives an adult interpretation, but able to remind us of childhood on keyboard."

It is a very 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 preparation (top marks, honours and mentions of honor in Italy and Diplome Superieur d'Execution at the Ecole Normale "A.Cortot" in Paris) he has received awards from the most prestigious piano competitions (Washington, Pretoria, Busoni, Viotti, etc ...). Tezza 's intense concert activities have lead him to play in the most famous concert halls and to collaborate with the finest musicians Ashkenazy, Ughi, Hogwood...

After having completed the study of the violin and orchestra conductor he began a new career leading very important ensembles in Europe, Asia, America, and often doubling his role as conductor and soloist.

Tezza, the conductor, presents a vast repertoire, from baroque to contemporary music passing through opera (Boheme, Vascello Fantasma, Maria de Buenos Aires etc ...) and giving a great deal of attention to the music of Piazzolla.

He is well-known to the public and critics as an artist with a strong personality who never stops looking through scores to find unique ways of interpreting them, for new expressive logics, new sonorities.

He has been invited to hold Master Classes at very important institutes (Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne; University of San Paolo, Brasile; Conservatory in Sofia; University of S.Esprit in Beirut; University of South Florida; UNEAC in La Habana; Jazeps Vitols Latvian Academy in Riga etc.).

He is the permanent artistic director of the Stravinskij Chamber Orchestra (SCO) and he conducts concert seasons and musical festivals in Europe and in South America.

He has recorded for AS disc, Balkanton, Klingsor and OnClassical.

He is a member of the Accademia Veneta of Arts and Science.

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.
