Born in Bologna, Italy,  Stefano Rover began studying the piano at the age of four and made his public début with a short solo recital only a year later.  He was admitted to the” Luigi Cherubini” Conservatory of Music in Florence studying under Rosa Maria Scarlino, where he obtained his ‘summa cum laude’ (first honour) diploma.  He then furthered his study at the Accademia di Alto Perfezionamento in Perugia and obtained the diploma of  excellence under the renowned Lucia Passaglia (pupil of Cortot, Michelangeli and Agosti) who has greatly inspired his style and philosophy of playing.  He also won scholarships studying with Joaquin  Achucarro and Maurizio Pollini at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena.  Over the past decade, he has also received invaluable advice from Rudolf Buchbinder, Homero Franscesh, Lazar Berman and Valentina Berman.

Stefano was the winner of many national and international piano competitions. He has given recitals extensively in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, France, Slovenia, Lithuania, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Indonesia and the UAE.  And has collaborated with orchestras such as Kaunas Philharmonic Orchestra, Klaipèda Philharmonic Orchestra in Lithuania, the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Uzbekistan and the Hong Kong Symphonia, performing concertos by Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann and Rachmaninov.  Rover’s repertoire is extensive, spanning from Baroque to contemporary composers, with a major interest in Beethoven works and Romantic period composers.  His CD recordings include Beethoven’s 32 Variations in C minor and Diabelli Variations.
