Pianist, bandoneon player and composer, Claudio Constantini maintains a multifaceted career that has spanned five continents.

Born in Lima into a family of musicians, his original style is shaped by his solid classical roots, allied with a relentless passion for some popular musical genres, among which Latin American music and improvisation are essential.

He has performed in some of the most important theatres in the world, such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Festpielhaus in Baden-Baden, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Los Angeles Opera, the Munich Opera, the Palau de les Arts in Barcelona and the Teatro Real in Madrid, among others. In 2021, Astor Piazzolla's centreario, he has undertaken two tours as a soloist, one as a duo with the international pianist Louiza Hamadi, which is taking him to play in such outstanding venues as the Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao, the Teatros del Canal in Madrid, the Espacio Turina in Seville or the Sala María Cristina in Málaga or the Teatro de la Zarzuela, and at festivals such as the Granada Music and Dance Festival (Festival Extensión); and another with ensembles such as the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra, the Youth Orchestra of Andalusia, the ADDA Symphony Orchestra of Alicante, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Malaga and the City of Granada Orchestra, the latter with the Argentinian guitarist Fernando Egozcue. In April of this year he premiered his Concierto para bandoneón (Homenaje a Piazzolla) with the OJA, and in November he will perform in an extraordinary concert in the symphonic hall of the Auditorio Nacional de Madrid as a member of the quintet Piazzolla x100 led by the pianist Federico Lechner, accompanied by the Andrés Segovia Chamber Orchestra and with such outstanding musicians as the acclaimed Argentine drummer Daniel "Pipi" Piazzolla, Astor's grandson, and the celebrated singer Sheila Blanco.

He has made a total of six recordings under his own name, all of which have been highly acclaimed and critically acclaimed on an international level. His production entitled America (IBS Classical, 2018) brought him a nomination for a LATIN GRAMMY in 2019, in the category Best Classical Album, and the album 20th Century Tango (IBS, 2020) was distinguished with the silver medal of the GLOBAL MUSIC AWARDS.

Constantini has been invited to give masterclasses at institutions and festivals in Europe and beyond. He has also been a member of the jury of numerous international piano competitions. He began his piano studies at the National Conservatory of Peru under the tutelage of his father, Gerardo Constantini. Subsequently, he received his superior degree in Finland, his master's degree in Holland, and the Diplome de Concert in Paris, all of them with the highest distinction of the jury.
