Giuseppe Greco, born in 1990, is a pianist of remarkable prowess. With a degree earned at 15, he garnered top honors and distinctions under the tutelage of V. De Filpo. Recognized for his warm and full sound, Greco's technical brilliance, praised by Bruno Canino, transcends mere virtuosity, consistently enhancing the expressive depth and meaning of the music he interprets. A laureate of prestigious competitions, Greco continues to captivate audiences with his profound artistry and dedicated contributions to classical music.

The comprehensive recording of the complete sonatas was meticulously crafted by engineer Alessandro Simonetto, employing two pairs of Bruel & Kjaer microphones and Prism Sound pres/converters. This approach ensures a high-quality and faithful representation of the nuanced performances.
