Steinway Artist Cosmo Buono first came to international prominence with the Bradshaw & Buono piano team, specialists in four hand literature. He and the late David Bradshaw did much to restore awareness of rare works written by Chopin, Liszt, Rossini, and Schubert. Continuing a tradition of distinguished piano duos begun with Liszt-Chopin and Debussy-Casella, they played in major capitals and festivals throughout the world including New York’s Alice Tully Hall, Wigmore Hall in London, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and the Mostly Mozart Festival, all while creating a discography that includes Grammy-nominated recordings.
As Chairman & CEO of Alexander & Buono International, a consulting firm he co-founded to provide guidance for classical musicians, Mr. Buono continues to prepare artists for classical careers. In constant demand as a teacher, he has distinguished himself as one of the foremost proponents of the Leschetizky Method, advocating rich, expressive playing, and a complete understanding of the composer’s idiom.
Managing his own studio while supervising music schools in Japan, Mr. Buono also serves as Artistic Director of the Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition.
