About

À Claude stems from a profound admiration for Claude Debussy and his legacy, a composer who thanks to his intense aesthetic, formal and timbral research has been a fundamental pillar and turning point for the 20th century's musical production. The programme aims to be a family reunion, an ancestral tree starting with Claude Debussy and branching out into all the subsequent generations: Olivier Messiaen continued Debussy's research, merging it with his personal interest in colour and non-European cultures; the Japanese Toru Takemitsu who pays homage to Olivier Messiaen and his rich harmonies; the American George Crumb, whose work takes the piano towards unheard-of timbres and considers Claude Debussy his greatest teacher; the Romanian Diana Rotaru, who pays tribute to the two great masters with her Debumessquisse and finally Benedetto Boccuzzi attempting to condense this legacy in his short piano piece (quasi) Notturno.

Benedetto Boccuzzi (New York 1990) is an eclectic musician: pianist, composer, improviser and teacher. His repertoire as a solo pianist and chamber musician ranges from Frescobaldi and Purcell to the most recent contemporary compositions via Schubert, Debussy and Shostakovich. He performs regularly in Italy and Europe and collaborates with the flautist Alessandra Rombolà, Equilibrio Dinamico Dance Company (Bari) and La Chambre Magique Theatre Company, for which he composed and performed the stage music for Oscar Wilde's Salomé (directed by Michele Suozzo - Teatro Palladium, Rome). He specialized in the performance of the contemporary repertoire working with the Zahir Ensemble in Seville and the Teatro Lirico Sperimentale in Spoleto, he also worked as a piano accompanist at the Escola Superior de Música in Porto. In 2016 he completed his academic studies in piano with honours under the mentorship of the Prof. Roberto Bollea at the Conservatoire "N. Rota" in Monopoli. He studied with Prof. Óscar Martín Castro at the Conservatory "M. Castillo" in Seville, and specialized with Prof. Carlo Guaitoli at the Festival della Piana del Cavaliere. He studied harpsichord with the Prof. Marco Bisceglie and composition with the professors Marco della Sciucca and Federico Gardella. He regularly conducts educational activities, workshops and lectures on the contemporary repertoire, extended techniques and improvisation. His compositions have been performed in Italy, Germany, Spain and Romania.
