"Mauro Bertoli is an Italo-Canadian pianist, who lives in Ottawa where he moved from Italy in 2009. After receiving the first prize in several International and national Piano Competitions he has established himself on the international stage and has been praised by the press for his formidable technique and exceptional sensitivity.

Invited to debut for the recognized International Piano Festival of Brescia and Bergamo, in Italy (April 2016), he has also been awarded the prestigious Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli Prize for the youth. A new addition to the Prize that since 2000 has been awarded by the above mentioned Festival and the Foundation CAB to personalities such as Pollini, Argerich, Kissin, Uchida, Lang Lang, Temirkanov, Muti, Ughi, Rostropovich, Maisky just to cite a few, and that for the first time ever has been assigned to a young pianist with an emerging international career.

"....dazzled by (the) up-and-coming pianist ...with absolutely flawless technique and deep musicality...Here is a newcomer to watch out for."
- John Terauds, Toronto Star

“In the world of classical music, Italy has long been known for producing famous singers and conductors. For some reason, though, the list of renowned Italian pianists is considerably shorter — Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli and Maurizio Pollini are among those who come to mind. However, with the release of three CDs featuring a young artist by the name of Mauro Bertoli, that list should be immediately augmented!”
- Richard Haskell, The Whole Note
