For over twenty years she has been acknowledged for the curiosity and versatility of her performances and the virtuosity and passion reflected on her extended repertoire. Well-known is the rarity of her recordings. She took part in several original projects that saw her collaborating with Ircam – Centre Pompidou in Paris and with the Foundation of Contemporary Art «Spinola-Banna», where she was Artist in Residence with the composer Georges Aperghis. Mariangela Vacatello imposed herself very young in the international scene: she was 17 when she won the second prize at the Liszt Competition in Utrecht. She then distinguished herself at the Busoni in Bolzano and Van Cliburn in Bruxelles. She won the Premio Venezia, the Solti Foundation Award, the Critics Award «Nino Carloni», and many others. Her musical activity has no borders. The spectrum of her collaboration with Orchestras and Directors is considerable. Born in Castellammare di Stabia, she studied at Accademia Pianistica di Imola, at Milan Conservatory and the Royal Academy of Music. She currently lives in Perugia and to her pianistic career alongside an intense educational activity.

Vacatello domina gli umori con sfrontatezza, fantasiosa immedesimazione danzante e vividezza interpretativa, investendo la consueta ricchezza di movenze e colori pianistici anche su pagine che altrimenti potrebbero suonare di genere. E invece qui figurano piccoli capolavori.
