Music has always played for me a double meaning: on the one hand, since I am a composer, he was and is a great tool for self-knowledge and autosciplina and the other was and is a valuable opportunity to communicate with the people that I surround.
Do you agree that music is all about fantasy?
"Music" can mean many things, even conflicting. Everyone is different and therefore has a diversified approach to the world and what belongs to the world, including music. Fantasy can only be one of the tools available to the composer: I personally think that the imagination is very important but it alone is not enough ... you need a good technical preparation, self-discipline, patience and a strong motivation combined with a love unconditional in respect of their musical work.
If you were not a professional musician, would you have been?
Maybe I would be a film director. I love cinema as much as I love music.
The classical music audience is getting old, are you worried about your future?
Rarely I think about my future. I am personally more attracted by the present and fascinated by the great masterpieces of the past.
Do you think we musicians can do something to attract young generation into the classical music concerts? How will you proceed?
I think musicians should only continue to be honest with yourself really going to explore their feelings. You can not please everyone and, in my experience, I see that many young people are attracted by contemporary music (or classical) that really something genuine to communicate.
Tell us about your creative process. Do you have your favourite piece (written by you) How did you start working on it?
The creative process of a piece can be different each time. Personally I am a very instinctive musician ... as a child I always had a very instinctive and immediate approach to making music ... both in composition and improvisation. I rarely had a crisis of creativity, and I almost never had the fear of the blank page. For me it is really very natural make music and, if anything, I have to hold off the ideas and select them carefully.
We, Moving Classics TV, love the combination of classical music with different disciplines: music and painting, music and cinematography, music and digital art, music and poetry. What do you think about these combinations?
I see with great interest this type of combination of music and other art forms, and frankly, I would have more opportunity to work in this way.
Can you give some advice for young people who want to discover classical music for themselves?
Everyone can have very different approaches to the music and then find it difficult to give advice. The only really important thing I think is to educate their listening skills, for example experimenting with different ways of listening and then have faith in a deeper and sophisticated approach to all types of music.
Do you have expectations what regards your listeners, your audience?
The only expectation that I can have with regard to the listeners of my music is to listen to it with a non-superficial approach and are willing to listen to it several times.
What projects are coming up? Do you experiment in your projects?
What I really want is to have the opportunity to record all my choral music flawlessly. I would also like to write more music for voices and even a small work of musical theater for children.
