David Ianni David Ianni David Ianni is a critically acclaimed pianist and the composer of more than 100 works, including many compositions for the piano and sacred choral music. He has also composed chamber music, an oratorio, music for piano and orchestra and a children’s opera. His music has been performed throughout Europe, India and Japan. David was born in Luxembourg in 1979. He was accepted in the piano class of Daniel Feis in the Conservatoire d’Esch-sur-Alzette at the age of nine. At fifteen, he completed his piano diploma in Luxembourg with a “Premier Prix avec grande distinction”. He continued his studies in London at the Purcell School and later worked with Tatiana Sarkissova, teacher at the Royal Academy of Music. He also studied with Dimitri Bashkirov, Anatol Ugorski, Dirk Joeres and Radu Lupu. In 2005, he completed his studies with Tonie Ehlen at the Maastricht Conservatory. After winning a number of prizes in national and international competitions, the sixteen-year-old musician began a career as a concert pianist, performing solo recitals and concerts with orchestras. His debut CD – with works by Beethoven, Rachmaninov and Scriabin – was released in 1997. In 1999, the recording “Theodor Kirchner: Piano Music” followed. In the late nineties, David withdrew from the public in order to find his spiritual and musical identity. He increasingly dedicated himself to composing his own music. In the following fruitful years, David developed his very unique and personal style which reflects his pursuit of truth, beauty and silence in music, motifs that are inseparably linked to the mysteries of his Catholic faith. “Night Prayers – Mystical Piano Dreams”, David’s first album with his piano compositions was published on OehmsClassics in 2011. That same year he composed and recorded the piano accompaniments for the album “Chant – Amor et Passio” by the Cistercian Monks of Stift Heiligenkreuz, which reached platinum status in Austria. In 2012 the monks commissioned David to compose and play the chant accompaniments for their album “Chant – Stabat Mater”. His solo album “Prayers of Silence” was released in 2014 on OehmsClassics.
