In 2018, Gabriele Strata won first prize at the XXXV Premio Venezia, the prestigious Italian competition. In 2021, he was awarded by Teatro La Fenice the historical “Premio Una Vita nella Musica giovani” for his artistic achievements. 

Gabriele regularly performs on the world’s most renowned stages, including concerto appearances with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin at the Berliner Philharmonie, in London’s Barbican Centre and Cadogan Hall, in Cardiff’s St. David’s Hall with the Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra, and in Mumbai’s National Centre for Performing Arts with Chamber Orchestra of India, working with conductors such as Roberto Tibiriçá, Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli, Baldur Brönnimann, Andreas Wittmann, and Hans Richter. 

An avid chamber musician, he has played at Wigmore Hall and Milton Court Concert Hall in London, Lincoln Center in New York, and has premiered chamber music works by Academy Award-nominee Thomas Newman and Pulitzer Prize-finalist Kate Soper. 

Gabriele received his Master of Music degree from Yale University at the age of 19, as well as a Master of Musical Arts degree under the guidance of Professor Boris Berman. He then obtained Artist Diplomas degrees from the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia cum laude and special honours, and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama under the tutelage of Benedetto Lupo and Ronan O’Hora respectively.
