Arianna Granieri is a pianist and performer with multiple artistic interests, including the contemporary repertoire and the musical research; over time she has acquired and consolidated particular aspects of emotional communication and involvement of the listener as an integral part of the performance.
After graduating cum laude and honourable mention in Piano under the guidance of Professor Cinzia Damiani at the “Conservatorio di Musica Santa Cecilia” in Rome and completing her Master's Degree in Philosophy at “Università di Roma Tor Vergata” with a thesis on the Japanese aesthetics, she has attended several masterclasses such as the Darmstadt Summer Courses, IDEA in Milan and New Music Week in Rome.

She has been invited to perform, both as a soloist and in various chamber and orchestral ensembles, at numerous important festivals, musical foundations and concert halls often performing Italian and world premieres, such as Orpheus Institut in Gent, OGR in Turin, ERT in Modena, Auditorium Parco della Musica, Fondazione Isabella Scelsi, Japanese Istitute of Culture, EMUfest and ArteScienza in Rome.
As a member of the Avidi Lumi ensemble, she works with the homonym collective in artistic and research projects; she is also cofounder of the experimental free improvisation group The Empty Bowl.
She is currently involved in various artistic projects with well-known Italian interpreters of contemporary repertoire. Very interested in the relationship between music and the other forms of art, she also works in theatrical and cinematic contexts.
