“I am a violinist and a performance coach.
I train musicians to overcome stress so they can excel at concerts, auditions and competitions. I combine insights from both sports psychology, natural and nutritional therapies with the skills and ear of a professional musician.
I love challenges and experimenting and Splendor is the perfect place to research, inspire and get inspired by like-minded musicians and public.
In such intimate and vibrant space, I like to develop new ways to connect with my audience. I encourage them to feel as much a part of the concerts as the performers: only then can magic really happen.”

“…a festival highlight…Particularly affecting was a series of harmonics, quietly wrung from the violin by Tiziana Pintus, which held the collective breath of the Artspace audience and briefly transformed the space’s antiseptic vibe into an ennobled zone—reflective and smart, without any recourse to pious display.”
– Real Time Magazine, Sydney (Australia) · Jon Dale
