Bio

Born in 1994, Rosalía starts her piano studies at age 5 with María José Cerviño and Alexander Gold. Afterwards she studies with Alan Weiss at the Utrecht Conservatory (Bachelor Degree) and with Claudio Martínez Mehner at the Hochschule für Musik Basel (Master Performance and Solistin Diplom). Her interest for historical keyboards starts in The Netherlands, where she takes harpsichord lessons from Siebe Henstra, and continues at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where she studies fortepiano with Edoardo Torbianelli and harpsichord with Jörg Andreas Bötticher. Among her main musical influences are also Kennedy Moretti, Amandine Beyer, Clive Brown, Sergio Azzolini, Rita Wagner and Ferenc Rados.

 

After winning the Young Pianist Foundation Competition in Amsterdam, she has made her debut in halls like Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Tivoli Vredenburg Utrecht, Palau de la Música Catalana, Cairo Opera House, Konzerthaus Dortmund and Herkulessaal in Munich, among other venues in Europe, the Middle East and the USA. She has performed as a soloist with orchestras such as Noord Nederlands Orkest, Real Filharmonía de Galicia, Sinfónica de Galicia, Nederlands Jonge Orkest, Cairo Symphony Orchestra, Duisburger Philarmoniker, Folkwang Kammerorchester Essen and Basel Symphony Orchestra, among others.

She collaborates regularly with numerous chamber music groups. Her duo with violinist Antonio Viñuales has won awards at the BOG Duo Competition and the Orpheus Chamber Music Competition. She has been invited to festivals such as Delft Chamber Music Festival, Storioni Festival, Shiermonnikoog Chamber Music Festival, Clásicos de Verano, Beflügelt Festival, Musikdorf Ernen, Swiss Chamber Music Festival, Heidelberger Frühling re:start, Wissembourg Chamber Music Festival, etc.

Rosalía has a broad experience in the field of Historically Informed Performance. She has been invited to early music series such as Festival Radovljica, Schlosskonzerte Kirchberg an der Jagst, Utrecht Early Music Festival Fringe, Espazos Sonoros, Musica Antica da Camera and Jagthuis Fortepiano Weekend, among others. She is also connected with the centers for historical pianos Fondation Royaumont and La Nouvelle Athénes. Besides, she has been invited to give lectures about 19th century performance practices at different European universities. In 2021 she got her Masters on Musical Research at the Valencia International University with her thesis "The rubato on Schubert's piano music".

 

Her passion for the history of musical aesthetics has led her to experiment with a wide range of instruments: from Baroque to electronic keyboards. She performs frequently in contemporary music festivals and has premiered works by composers such as A. Frank, E. Schoenberger and G. F. Haas. She has been involved in crossovers with other musical styles –such as her project “Celtic Beethoven” with the renowned folk musician Carlos Núñez– and interdisciplinary projects like “Clorindae” –a music and dance performance about women's fight in society–.

In 2015 the newspaper El Correo Gallego awarded her with the title Galician of the Year for “her striking career and her outstanding artistic maturity”. She has been supported by institutions like Diputación de la Coruña, Juventudes Musicales de España, Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund and DOMS Stiftung. Thanks to Thüringen State’s Qualification Scholarship for Women, in 2020-21 she was a Guest Professor for Piano and Chamber Music with a focus on Historically Informed Performance at the Hochschule für Musik FRANZ LISZT Weimar. Since 2021 she works as an Assistant for the Chamber Music Professor Anton Kernjak at the Hochschule für Musik Basel.
