Born into a family of musicians, Sara De Ascaniis began playing the piano by ear at the age of two, improvising by herself. She started her training at the age of seven when she entered the Arrigo Pedrollo Music Conservatory in Vicenza. Three years later she gave her first recital, which was followed by her debut with orchestra with Mozart’s K414 piano concerto. Since then she has performed regularly as a soloist and with orchestra both in Italy and abroad.

After completing her diploma summa cum laude at the conservatory, she obtained a bachelor’s degree from the Mozarteum University in Salzburg under the direction of Claudius Tanski. There she continued to complete the master’s degree with distinction in the class of Imre Rohmann, former student of Ferenc Rados and György Kurtàg. In addition, she received important musical impulses from renowned piano educators such as Karl-Heinz Kämmerling, Pavel Gililov, Leonid Margarius, Benedetto Lupo, Lilya Zilberstein, Boris Betrushansky and above all Konstantin Bogino, where she studied at the Cesare Pollini Conservatory in Padua (postgraduate).

She has often performed with various lineups from duo to quintet and has worked with artists such as Wolfgang Redik, Rainer Schmidt, Igor Ozim, Enrico Bronzi and Alois Brandhofer. Since she was 9, she has won numerous piano competitions, including the J.S. Bach Prize from Sestri Levante, the Recanati Prize, R. the Schumann Prize from the Rospigliosi Competition in Lamporecchio, the Matteo Molinari Prize from Vicenza, “Young Talents” from Venice, the Silvio Omizzolo Prize from Padua, Vito Frazzi Prize from Florence, the Mozart Prize at the Mozarteum Salzburg and the international piano competition in Baden-Baden.
She is passionate about giving piano lessons herself and, after completing her master’s degree in instrumental education at the Mozarteum Salzburg, she began her work at various music schools in Berlin. In December 2017 she became professor of piano at the State Conservatory of Cesare Pollini in Padua, Italy and in 2018/2019 she was a lecturer at the State Conservatory of Luca Marenzio in Brescia.
Her interpretations of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 and Schumann’s Piano Concerto were successfully broadcast on Italian radio. In 2020 appears her first Album “Fantasies” with works by Schumann, Chopin and Scriabin.
