Claudio Constantini is an internationally renowned and multifaceted performer, composer and arranger. He was born in Lima, Peru into a family of musicians and initiated his studies with his father, pianist Gerardo Constantini, in the National Conservatory of Music in Lima. 

He graduated as pianist/performer with honours from all further institutions of his education: the Lahti Conservatory in Finland (professors Lauri Väinmaa and Raija Kerppo), the Rotterdam Conservatorium master degree studies (mtro.Aquiles Delle Vigne), and received the diplome de concert from the Schola Cantorum in Paris (mtro.Aquiles Delle Vigne). His bandoneón studies were autodidactical at first and later perfected in the Rotterdam conservatorium with professor Víctor Villena. As a composer, he received training from maestro Gustavo Beytelmann, also in the Rotterdam conservatorium.

Claudio has been a top prize winner at various international competitions with highlights such as first prize in the Astor Piazzolla competition in Milan and first prize in the Litmann International competition in New York, as well as receiving the HSP Huygens prize for excellence in artistic studies from the Dutch government.
