Victor Sangiorgio Victor Sangiorgio SangiorgioPiano Twitter

Victor Sangiorgio was born in Italy but his family moved to Australia when he was four, and settled in Perth, Western Australia. He did his initial musical training there. Further studies were with Stephen Dornan, Roy Shepherd, Guido Agosti and Noretta Conci.

By the age of nineteen he had been a soloist with all the major Australian orchestras and had recorded and broadcast extensively on radio and television. He was a finalist in the 1978 ABC Instrumental and Vocal competition. He was a finalist in the 1988 Sydney International Piano Competition and won a special prize for the best performance of an Australian composition.

He was the featured soloist on the Australian Youth Orchestra's and West Australian Symphony Orchestra's tours of China, Hong Kong and Singapore.

He now resides in London and performs and records internationally. With Belinda McFarlane, violin, and Matthew Lee, cello, he is a member of the piano trio fiorini.

Victor Sangiorgio has given masterclasses in many cities and has also been artist in residence at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (2003) and Visiting Lecturer in Piano at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the Colchester Institute, and the Birmingham Conservatoire.

With the actor Andrew Sachs, he has toured with a two-man show called "Life after Fawlty", which included Richard Strauss's voice and piano setting of Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem "Enoch Arden".

In March 2008, with the General Manager of the Perth Concert Hall, he travelled to the Steinway factory in Hamburg to select a new Concert D Model Steinway piano for the Concert Hall.
