Graziana Presicce is an Italian pianist. She recently completed a scholarship-funded PhD in Music Performance at the University of Hull (2020), researching music listening and visual imagery experiences. In 2012, she graduated with a First Class BA Music Degree and was awarded the Sir Thomas Beecham Music Scholarship and Special Prize in Music. The friendly atmosphere and the privilege to study piano under the guidance of Irina Glushenkova encouraged her to pursue her studies in Hull further, completing a Master’s degree with Distinction (2014).
As a performer, Graziana actively engages in recitals both as a soloist as well as accompanist. Past engagements include concertos with NICE and the former Hull University Orchestra, and performances as part of the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2017, Graziana performed what is believed to be the recorded premiere of works by Ethel Leginska, alongside baritone Lee Tsang. The project was also featured on BBC Radio 3’s Music Matters. In 2018 and 2019, she joined as deputy pianist for Silent Uproar’s UK tours of the award-winning theatre production A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad). As a pianist, her interests embrace a variety of musical styles and always looks forward to new, creative experiences.
