Alessandro Martire: Italian Cultural Institute – December 2

| Culture, Hidden London, Music, Special Events, Uncategorized | 30/10/2013


Alessandro Martire is an Italian pianist and composer born in Como, 1992. He has been fascinated by music and keyboard instruments since childhood. Alessandro commenced music studies at the Centro Musicale, and has since studied at Music Academy Genoa. In 2012, he gained a placement in Music Composition at Berklee College in Boston.

Alessandro draws upon Minimalist influences such as Ludovico Einaudi and the ‘Classical Crossover’ works of David Lanz. He realigns the Classical tradition through a contemporary lens producing evocative harmonies and catchy melodies. Alessandro’s approach, though larger-than-life, is accessible and open to interpretation. Signor Martire recognises a vital communication with the listener; sharing his feelings, thoughts and dreams as if an old friend. His is an Impressionistic and contemplative style whether a solo artist or in ensemble.

Alessandro’s compositions ‘Un Ricordo dal Cuore’ and ‘Along the River Thames’ are published in Musicaurea, and distributed across conservatories and academies world-wide. “When students use my compositions to learn, I feel an indescribable emotion…” he enthuses. Alessandro’s piece ‘Dolce Pensiero’ (‘Sweet Thought’) won the Tenth Edition of the National Competition of Piano Composition in Savona, and was included in the repertoire of international concert pianist Eugenio de Luca.
