With more than thirty recordings in his own discography, Emile Pandolfi ranks among America’s most popular piano artists.
Although the majority of his performance repertoire is lush, intricate arrangements of Broadway and pop standards, his influences are, in fact, more classical than pop. It is this subjective layering of classical style, which Pandolfi infuses into the broad palette of his performance selections, that continues to resonate with audiences everywhere.
Recording since 1991, the pianist‘s albums of familiar music have sold over three and a half million CDs nationally. This has earned Emile the distinction of being one of the top-selling pianists in the music industry, distributed online as well as in specialty, gift and book shops across the nation. Now with 30+ albums, most major online retailers also carry Emile’s music for download, and it is streamed thousands of times daily on Spotify, Pandora, and other streaming platforms.
Emile's parents were first-generation Italian-Americans, and communicating with passion was natural. While Emile was growing up, the Pandolfi home was known as “the place to gather.” Music was always a part of their home, and always associated with fun.
That attitude continues today in Emile’s concert performances as, although serious about his playing, Emile is never serious about himself. While the audience is treated to a brilliant musical performance, they are also entertained by Emile’s charming, light-hearted sense of humor and outgoing personality.
Whether you experience Emile Pandolfi on recording or in live performance, you will experience the intensity and skill of communication that can only come from a true artist, in every sense of the word.
