Rina Furano (*1989) is a Viennese classical composer, pianist and author of 450+ musical works to date. The catalogue so far includes two symphonies, a dectet, quartets, trios, duos, sonatas, choirs, 180 lieder and dozens of works for piano solo and duet.
Latest achievements include a new piano pedalling technique and an expansion of the traditional sonata form (see Innovations).
Actively eschewing the limelight in favour of a monkish dedication to musical craftsmanship, Furano composes full time. In addition, she teaches 19th-century piano technique and the trade of classical composition to a strict selection of talented students. 2019 marks an unusual break from her reclusion as the composer stands to play a few choice public concerts (see Concerts) and to compose a new original opera (Nebelfeld or The Merry End of the World).
