Gianni Turcio

Booking / Enquiry

Gianni (John) Turcio hails from Capri, a magical island lying just off the west coast of Italy and forming part of that splendid panorama which is the Bay Of Naples.

Gianni, whose father was also a musician, began studying the piano at the age of seven and was in his early teens when he commenced what has developed into a long and illustrious career.

As an accomplished pianist, composer, arranger and musical director Gianni is continually in demand by national and international artists and the list for whom he has provided his skills include James Morrison, John Farnham, John Paul Young, Doug Parkinson, Chelsea Brown, Lisa Edwards, Julie Anthony, Rhonda Burchmore, Jackie Love, Marina Prior, John Rowles, Tony Pantano, Rob Guest, Ron Lees, Silvie Paladino, Denis Walter, Normie Rowe, Phyllis Diller, Rolf Harris, Rachel Beck, Todd McKenna, Rhys Merion and Colleen Hewitt.

Gianni has performed with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in the production of several sound tracks for feature films and has also worked on the Seven, Nine &Ten commercial television networks.

To say that Gianni is kept busy is quite an understatement - he is founder and director of The Melbourne Italian Ensemble, founder and director of I Musici Of Melbournestring orchestra, musical director for an annual Carols By Candlelight concert held at a popular Melbourne club and a member of the twenty piece Daryl McKenzie Jazz Orchestra.
And of course on any given day you will find Gianni performing either solo, with a jazz combo or maybe leading a corporate big band at the Park Hyatt, the Hilton Hotel,Crown Casino, prestige function centres and at Melbourne's more fashionable restaurants and lounges.
