Described as “a true tour-de-force such as not often encountered.” (Classical Voice of North Carolina), Angelo Rondello’s career has brought him across the globe and throughout the United States. Known for powerfully expressive and energetic performances, his recording of Schumann’s Symphonic Etudes was hailed by American Record Guide as “wonderfully effective and makes Rondello one of the leading exponents of Schumann’s opus.”
Upcoming appearances include concerts in Norway, Italy, Hungary and Japan, as well as two concerts at Benaroya Hall in Seattle next season. Recent highlights include his Cincinnati recital debut and performances with the Lake Washington Symphony, Seattle Festival Orchestra, Bainbridge Symphony, Cascade Symphony, and Lake Union Civic Orchestras. In addition, Rondello appeared at the Pianoforte Foundation in Chicago, as well as in outreach concerts through the International Music Foundation. His critically acclaimed Chicago debut, held at the Chicago Cultural Center, was broadcast live on WFMT Chicago and the Internet.
Rondello is director of Seattle Music Exchange Project, which promotes the music and musicians of Seattle both locally and abroad, while encouraging the exchange of music between Seattle and other cities worldwide.
Rondello gave New York debut in the Trinity/St. Paul Concert Series, and has performed throughout the US and in Southeast Asia as a pianist and teacher. He was featured as a “Rising Artist of Asia” at the 2011 Federation of Asian Cultural Promoters Conference, and performed at Philamlife Auditorium in Manila in Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto. He has since performed and taught throughout the Philippines. He has appeared on CUNY TV, featuring a performance of the Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto no. 2, as well as WFMT FM, KING FM, KZAZ FM, and KUGS FM among others, as both a subject of interview and in studio recordings.
Equally adept as a teacher, Rondello runs a thriving studio in Seattle and is a sought after adjudicator and teacher of masterclasses at universities, music festivals, K-12 schools, and private music studios.
A native of Bellingham, WA, Rondello began studying music at age 5 and by his early teens was concertizing regularly. As a child, he studied at the Seattle Conservatory of Music, and in 2000 moved to New York City, where he completed his musical training, studying at the Manhattan School of Music, Mannes College of Music, and the Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College. His teachers included Mark Salman, Jeffrey Biegel, Nina Svetlanova, Zitta Zohar, and David Dubal.
