Biography
Fabio Maffei, a native Italian, was born in Yverdon (Switzerland).
At the age of 4 he began to play the piano and from 1976 to 1985 he studied at the Conservatory of Lausanne, in the class of Anne-Marie Tabachnik. During several years he took interpretation classes with the pianist Fausto Zadra, before continuing his studies with the pianist Esther Yellin at the Heinrich Neuhaus Foundation in Zurich.
From 1985 he studied composition privately with the Swiss composer René Gerber.
He also studied conducting under Chen Liang-Sheng in Geneva and Michel Tabachnik.
Fabio Maffei has won several prizes at piano competitions. He has performed in Switzerland and abroad, both as recitalist and with orchestra (e. g. the Romanian National Symphony Orchestra, the Roman orchestra Camerata Mozart).
His first work (Divertimento for seven wind instruments and piano) was first performed in 1988 in the Wiener Konzerthaus by the Vienna Virtuosi. In 1993 he won the special prize at the composing competition "Musique pour la Liturgie" of the "Procure Romande de Musique Sacrée" in Fribourg, and two years later the first prize for his work Le Petit Prince at the Competition for Young Composers of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne. In 2003, his Lacrimoso in remembrance of Nicholas Green was first performed by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande under the baton of Mario Venzago.
His compositions (works for orchestra and chamber music) have been performed in Switzerland, in Europe and in the USA. They have also been broadcast on radio and television, and have appeared on CD.
In 1996 Fabio Maffei was awarded a medal by the Arts-Sciences-Lettres Society of Paris.
