Federico Andreoni is Director of Music and Organist at the Church of St. John the Evangelist in Montreal and representative of the parish to the Quartier des Spectacles. He is also a doctoral student in musicology/music theory at the University of Toronto, where he is studying under the supervision of Don McLean. He teaches courses at an undergraduate level at the University of Toronto.
Originally from Milan, Federico began his concert career as an organist at the age of seventeen. Since then he has performed in concert seasons and festivals throughout Europe, the United States, and Canada, and has recorded for Canadian, French, Italian, and Swiss radio broadcasts.
At the age of twenty-five, he performed the complete organ works of J. S. Bach; he will perform this programme again in 2013, 2014, and 2015, on the magnificent Wolff organ op. 27 at the Church of St. John the Evangelist in Montreal. In 2004 and 2011 he also performed the complete organ works of D. Buxtehude, and in 2005 those of J. Alain.
Federico earned diplomas in organ and piano from the International Music Academy in Milan, and the Premier Prix de Virtuosité and the Prix Spécial Otto Barblan in the organ class of Lionel Rogg at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Geneva.
More recently, he completed two Masters degrees at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University in Montreal: an M.Mus. in Organ Performance, in the class of William Porter, and an M.A. in Music Theory, under the supervision of Christoph Neidhoefer and Jonathan Wild. While at McGill, he was awarded prizes for, among others, Outstanding Achievement and High Distinction, as well as the Salsinger Tani Gold Medal in Organ Performance, the Olympia Garibaldi-Galavaris Prize for excellence in research on early music, and three Schulich Scholarships.
The University of Toronto awarded him a University of Toronto Fellowship and the Jeanne Anson-Cartwright Memorial Graduate Fellowship in Music History/Music Theory. He is the recipient of two prestigious research grants: the Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS – Master’s, and the Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS – Doctoral, which are awarded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of the Government of Canada.
As a researcher, he has presented at conferences and colloquia at the Eastman School of Music (University of Rochester, USA), California State University at Long Beach, and the Faculty of Music of the University of Toronto. Moreover, he is preparing a publication on the relationship between improvisation and large-scale formal designs in North German Baroque keyboard repertoire.
Federico is also active as a composer: his compositions have been performed in concert series, festivals, and conventions in France, Germany, Switzerland, and the United States.
