RICHARD VALITUTTO is a piano soloist, chamber musician, vocal accompanist, composer, and improviser. With a focus on contemporary keyboard performance, including repertoire for organ and harpsichord, Richard is particularly committed to exploring and performing the extended palette of piano techniques and the prepared piano.

Richard is a founding member of both the chamber orchestra/creative collective wild Up and the new music quartet, gnarwhallaby, called “as impressively gnarly as its name” (LA Times) in their Disney Hall debut and “startlingly versatile” (NY Times) in their Carnegie Hall debut. He regularly performs modern and contemporary art song with various singers and concert series and is one half of a composed-improvisation duo with saxophonist, musicologist, and composer Dave Wilson.
He has collaborated and performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Martha Graham Dance Company, PBS Great Performances, Monday Evening Concerts, LA Dance Project, Opera Omaha, Piano Spheres, wasteLAnd, Brooklyn Art Song Society, Dilijan Chamber Music, MicroFest, People Inside Electronics, and Jacaranda Music series. Additional projects include productions by Beth Morrison Projects and LA Opera, The Industry, The Hammer Museum, LACMA, and the Green Umbrella series.

He is featured on critically acclaimed recordings of solo, chamber, and ensemble music—both composed and improvised—for Kairos, Bridge, New World, hat[now]ART, Populist, pfMENTUM, Bôłt, and The Industry Records labels.
