The Italian pianist Teresa Trevisan, born in the Venetian fortress of Palmanova, graduated “cum laude” and a special ministerial mention from the Music Conservatory “Giuseppe Tartini” in Trieste. Her teachers were Luciano Gante in Trieste and Aquiles Delle Vigne at the Ecole Normale de Musique “Alfred Cortot” in Paris, where she also became his assistant.

Both professors had a deep influence on her artistic and pedagogical development. However, her first piano teacher Maria Puxeddu contributed at  a  large extent to immerse her in the piano pedagogy since youth.


Teresa Trevisan was awarded various recognitions at national and international

competitions and her concert performances took her to many venues in Italy and abroad, in Europe and USA.

Always interested in Chamber Music, she attended the International Menhuin Academy of Gstaad and the International Academy of the Trio di Trieste in Duino.

Much of her artistic career was devoted to the piano duo ensemble, first with his brother Filippo and currently with Flavio Zaccaria, aiming at discovering a repertoire less known such as Reger (Web Concert Hall honorary mention in 2006) and Busoni for the 150° anniversary of his birth in 2016.
After recording the opera omnia by Rachmaninoff and some CDs dedicated to Reger, the Italian label Limen Music has recently released a DVD including the opera omnia for two pianos by Ferruccio Busoni.

Following the project “In search of roots”, another DVD has just been recorded  for the same label with works by Max Reger.


Teresa Trevisan is currently full time piano professor at the Trieste Music Conservatory “Giuseppe Tartini”, as a winner of the last National State Competition.

Her experience as a pedagogue has led within the years many students to important recognitions and awards in national and international renowned competitions.

She frequently serves as a judge at numerous international competitions and regularly teaches piano and piano-duo masterclasses in many important European Universities and Academies (Albania, Austria, Belgium, Coatia, Finland, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Lithuania, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey).


Teresa Trevisan was the artistic director of the International Piano Competition “Filippo Trevisan” and the International Music Competition “Città di Palmanova”. He is currently co-artistic director of the Radovlijca International Piano Competition.
