The Valencian pianist Xavier Torres is one of the most recognized and prominent performers of his generation. Acclaimed by both critics and the public, he has been awarded in different national and international competitions and festivals: Iturbi International Piano Competition, Amparo Fandos, Maestro Serrano, Verneuil International Piano Festival, Ciutat de Carlet, Manuel del Águila etc. Trained under the guidance of Trini Lull, Jorge Moltó and Brenno Ambrosini, he has performed in some of the most important Spanish concert halls, as well as in different parts of France, Germany, Poland and the United States. We should underline his five performances in the Festival del Mediterrani of Valencia, chaired by the prestigious conductor Zubin Mehta. He has recorded works by Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt and Debussy for Radio Nacional de España, and has premiered Javier Costa’s piano solo work, Donde habite el olvido, in the Palau de les Arts of Valencia. Special attention also deserves his interpretation of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, which has been described by critics as unquestionable and masterful.
