Described as 'an amazingly talented pianist' by Musica, Emma Abbate performs with many of the leading singers and instrumentalists of her generation.

Emma has recently released the first of two volumes of Mozart's complete piano duets on original fortepianos with Julian Perkins for Resonus Classics, and two discs devoted to works by Stephen Dodgson for Toccata Classics: world-première recordings of his cello and piano music with Evva Mizerska, and his piano quintets with the Tippett Quartet.

Emma is also releasing a series of recordings devoted to 20th century Italian vocal chamber music, the latest of which is the world-première disc of Shakespeare Sonnets by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco with the BBC New Generation Artist Ashley Riches for Resonus Classics. Future plans include the world-première recording of songs by Ildebrando Pizzetti with the mezzo-soprano Hanna Hipp for Resonus Classics.

Based in London, Emma is a professor at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and a coach for the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
