Donald Alfano, Pianist and Teacher



Welcome to my website!!  I have put together this website to describe my teaching and other professional musical activities.  In addition to teaching, I have presented lecture-recitals, solo and collaborative recitals in the US and abroad. I have also contributed articles to a variety of music journals many of which can be seen in the articles section.

Lastly, there are some photos which have important significance; a photo at the Pleyel Harpsichord which was created by the harpsichordist Wanda Landowska (1979-1959). I was happy to have become a friend of her secretary, Denise Restout (1915-2003). This photo was taken before the Landowska collection in Lakeville, CT was donated to the Library of Congress. There is also a photo with one of the great pianist's of the century, Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha (1923-2009) whose artistry has been a continuous source of inspiration throughout my musical life. This photo was taken after having a coaching with Mme. de Larrocha in Barcelona.

I hope you enjoy the website and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me!!!!!
