Carlo Zecchi (1903 - 1984)

Carlo Zecchi received his first piano lessons from his mother who was herself a pianist. He then had lessons from Francesco Bajardi, a professor at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome. Zecchi also studied composition with Alessandro Bustini, Licinio Refice and Giacomo Setaccioli.

W. S. Cramp, an American from Philadelphia who lived in Rome, assisted Zecchi financially, enabling him to travel to Berlin where he studied with Ferruccio Busoni for a short period. After the death of Busoni, Zecchi decided to go to Paris, but his debut in that city was given at the same time as that of Vladimir Horowitz by whom he was overshadowed. It was an introduction to Artur Schnabel that led to Zecchi’s return to Berlin to study with the most important teacher of his career. With Schnabel Zecchi studied Schubert, many of the Beethoven piano sonatas, and many of the major works of Schumann including Kreisleriana Op. 16, Davidsbündlertänze Op. 6, Fantasiestücke Op. 12, Kinderszenen Op. 15 and the Humoreske Op. 20.
