Italian composer Alessandro Appignani began to play piano and cello as a small child, and was later drawn to composition, with a keen interest in the avant-garde of the 20th century. Alfred Schnittke is cited by Appignani as a composer who both inspired and influenced him. He studied piano with Marco Fumo, Hans Graf and Lazar Berman. His music is personal and as poetical as the titles might suggest.
Recorded in 2009 and 2010, first recordings of music by this young Italian composer.
