About

Composer, pianist, teacher assistant for dance, choir and orchestra, the author of non-fiction as the "Method for pianists of the dance." His musical language is decidedly cross-contaminated with various styles, from avant-garde music to jazz to electronic music. Author of soundtracks for documentaries RAI; author of chamber music, symphonic, sacred, instrumental and vocal, author of music dedicated to the world of childhood as the Zecchino d'oro. His new album titled "SpAXiano" is a piece of music for saxophone and piano, engraved by excellent musicians, which lies on the border between the language of jazz and the cultured of modern music. Each track on the album has inspired a painting by the painter Enzo D'Ignazio: the artistic synergy created between the music and the painting evokes the return of an impressionist world.

One of my songs that I composed and that I love so much is a soundtrack: the boys of a high school asked me to compose the music for a film created by them. I composed the orchestral music for the film and I find it very beautiful. The film is called "Anime sospese" and the overture is the music I composed that accompanies all the scenes.
