About me

Born in Florence (Italy) in 1981, Simone Stella studied piano at the Conservatory “L. Cherubini” of Florence with Rosanita Racugno, and perfected his piano studies with Marco Vavolo.

After studying organ in Florence with Mariella Mochi and Alessandro Albenga, harpsichord in Rome with Francesco Cera, and organ improvisation in Cremona with Fausto Caporali and Stefano Rattini, he has attended many courses and seminars held by internationally acclaimed artists, including Ton Koopman, Matteo Imbruno, Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini, Luca Scandali, Giancarlo Parodi, Stefano Innocenti, Klemens Schnorr, Ludger Lohmann, Michel Bouvard, Monika Henking, Guy Bovet.

He won the 2nd and 3rd “A. Esposito” Youth Organ Competition held in Lucca (2004-05) and then the 1st “Agati-Tronci” International Organ Competition held in Pistoia (2008).

Simone Stella plays, especially as a soloist, in Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark. His repertoire includes harpsichord and organ music from every historical era up to and including the present day. Particularly interesting is his live performance (2009-10) of the complete organ works by Dieterich Buxtehude in the historical Orsanmichele Church in Florence, where he was titular organist.

He is an active composer of instrumental music, both for solo instruments and chamber groups, in addition to working on free urtext editions of keyboard works by italian renaissance and baroque composers.

He has recorded for the labels ClassicaViva and OnClassical.
