Miguel Angel Acebo has been formed in two prestigious centres, such as the Imola International Piano Academy (Italy), where he studies with Leonid Margarius; and the Conservatoire Royal of Brussels, where he performs his Master studies under the direction of Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden, obtaining the “Prix du patrimoine” and the “Grande Distinction”, and managing to win extraordinarily “La plus grande distinction” in the piano final exam. He had advice from very important musicians and pedagogues such as Alicia de Larrocha, Paul Badura-Skoda, Bern Goetzke, Daniel Blumenthal, Michiko Tsuda or Eiji Oue.
He has gained the recognition of the jury in several national and international competitions such as the First Prize in the Excellentia International Piano Competition of Linkebeek (Belgium), the Second Prize in the Concorso Internazionale Andrea Baldi in Bologna (Italy), the Second Prize in the Concurso Ciudad de El Ejido (Almería), and the Second Prize in the Concurso Nacional de Piano Albacete.
He has performed as a soloist throughout Europe, in halls such as the Palau de la Música in Barcelona, the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Auditorio Manuel de Falla (Granada), Teatro López de Ayala (Badajoz), Associazione Mozart Italia, the “Imola Summer piano Academy & Festival” (Italy), and many others. Likewise, he has collaborated as soloist with several orchestras and ensembles, worth mentioning here the recording and broadcasting for Catalunya Musica of the Piano Concerto KV 271 by W. A. Mozart, with the National Orchestra of Andorra under the baton of Marzio Conti; or the collaboration with the Orquesta Ciudad de Almería with Michael Thomas as conductor, performing the Rachmaninov’s 2nd Concerto.
Nowadays, as a result of his interest on contemporary music, he carries out several projects with current Spanish composers, as well as different collaborations with chamber music ensembles. His constant quest to find an aesthetic reformulation of the recital idea, has led him to a fruitful collaboration with the plastic artist Roberto Urbano.
