Born in 1982, Artur Cimirro started his musical studies alone with the guitar (1995). His first contact with piano was in 1996, and after 2001 he dedicated himself to this instrument.

The focus of his studies is the virtuoso repertoire from Liszt's paraphrases to Sorabji's Sonatas. His repertoire also consists of works from the barroque Dietrich Buxtehude to the living composers like Allan Crossman, Samuel Peruzollo Vieira, among others, which results in a list with more than 200 composers names including the great Masters Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, etc.

Throughout his studies Artur Cimirro developed an nterpretative technique which is called "Scientific Interpretation System" where the works are analyzed taking into consideration their historical factors involving composer and work, with a faithful reading of the score in the compositional context (contrapuntal/harmonic/analytic). Resulting in the book "Scientific Interpretation System or Musical Hermeneutics".
