Fernando Viani’s music is characterized by virtuosity, compelling clarity with a superb degree of expressiveness. He has performed at Bolivar Hall (London), Symphonic Hall CCK (Buenos Aires), Red Hall (Montreal) and festivals such as Sonus International (USA), Vielsaitig, (Füssen), Mendelssohn (Bonn).


His recording of the complete piano and organ works by Alberto Ginastera met with tremendous success. He has performed with Philharmonie Baden-Baden, Orquestra Sinfónica de Caxias do Sul, Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional (Argentina), Orquesta Sinfónica de UNcuyo and the Filarmónica de Mendoza and the Entre Rios Symphony Orchestra (Argentina) and he has shared the stage with many artists, among them Ingeborg Danz, Laurent Breuninger, Peter Eötvös, Guillermo Anzorena, Sontraud Speidel and Alicia Borges.

 Since 2012 he has held a teaching position for piano at the Bern Conservatory, regularly offers master classes in Europe, North and South America, and often serves as a juror at various piano competitions.

Fernando said: "When I am in front of such an intimidating and overwhelming power of nature, it is almost a necessity to create a space for us humans through the music and the piano, breaking the silence and at the same time being part of it.

 

It is exciting to ​​bring music from far away Argentina to another hidden place like Verbier, nurturing the rich musical tradition of Verbier.

 

Last but not least, as a musician and pedagogue it is a pleasant obligation, to show these young people who have come from different parts of the world, that the culture everyone brings is worthy of being shown and that each of the places we come from can be an idyllic place like this and we make it our own place for a short moment our own place."
