Giuseppe Andaloro is considered by international critics to be one of the finest pianists of his generation and he has been guest of renowned festivals (Salzburger Festspiele, Ruhr Klavier, Spoleto Due Mondi, Bucarest Enescu, Ravello, Duszniki-Zdròj, Festival Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli di Brescia e Bergamo) in the most important concert halls and theaters in the world. He regularly plays with major orchestras (London Philharmonic Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra Tokyo, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonische Camerata Berlin, London Mozart Players) great conductors (such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Gianandrea Noseda, Andrew Parrott) and internationally acclaimed artists (including Sarah Chang, Giovanni Sollima, Sergj Krylov, John Malkovich).
He has won First Prize in some of the major international competitions (International Competition of London, Porto, Sendai, Hong Kong, Ferruccio Busoni in Bolzano) and in 2005 he was praised for artistic merit also by the Italian Ministry for Heritage and Cultural Activities.
Andaloro gives master classes in Italy and abroad (Tokyo Showa University, Fresno California State University, International Keyboard Academy of Thailand, Kuala Lumpur Chopin Society) and is a member of the jury for prestigious international competitions.
He has many records on his credit: his last Sony Album Cruel Beauty (November 2013) is a world premiére of Italian Late Renaissance and Early Baroque music, for the very first time recorded on a modern piano.
His repertoire ranges from Italian Renaissance to modern and contemporary music.
