Ida Pelliccioli was born in Bergamo, Italy. She studied at the Nice Conservatoire de Région and at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris - Alfred Cortot in the class of Serguei Markarov, Unesco Artist for Peace. During her studies, Ida Pelliccioli was awarded several scholarships, amongst them, one from the Zygmunt Zaleski Foundation and one from Fondation Albert Roussel.

Ida Pelliccioli participated in number of master-classes, among others with Jean-Claude Pennetier, Gerard Wyss and received a double diploma in interpretation and pedagogy, at the École Normale in Paris.

She received artistic guidance from Norma Fisher who teaches at the Royal College of Music in London, Stephen Gutman, and she is one of  the rare pianists to have received guidance from the Cuban concert pianist Jorge Luis Prats.

Ida chose to avoid the international competition circuit and, before becoming a full-time pianist, received a double master diploma at the Sorbonne University - in Italian Literature and in Ancient Greek History, specializing for the latter in the practice of music during the Hellenistic period.

Ida has been performing throughout Europe. She will make her debut in Norway, Cyprus, Portugal, Spain and the US in 2019.

In February 2018, she gave a solo recital in Milan under the patronage of Yamaha Italy.

Ida Pelliccioli has been invited in several festivals, among others, “Un piano sous les arbres” at Lunel-Viel, and “Fêtes Musicales de Pionsat”, where she was invited by the pianist Racha Arodaky. Ida shows a great interest in contemporary music and she will be premiering works from the following composers in 2019 – Raffaele Bellafronte and Jean-Luc Gillet.
