Record-breaking pianist and composer Christian Calcatelli was born in Melbourne, Florida, USA and eventually relocated to Rome, Italy.
Triggered by curiosity, he slowly taught himself how to read music, plunk the first notes on the piano and play around with harmonies. When 13 years old, he entered the selections for Master Piano course at the prestigious "S. Cecilia" Conservatory of Rome. He reached second place over hundreds of participants and was admitted.
From then on, he began his formal study of piano, solfeggio and music theory which would last for the next six years.
Today, at 25, Christian is happily married. He has treasured all the teachings received through time and made them his own, developing a personal, intimate style of piano playing. "Simplicity" he says, "unleashes deep feelings and touches the heart like few other things. That''s why we feel what we feel when we listen to Mozart."
You''ll therefore find Christian''s music to be simple but not simplistic.
On September 15 to 17, 2004 Christian improvised according to his style for 60 hours and one minute non stop in Rome Italy while raising funds for humanitarian organization PLAN international. The event was broadcast over the web and was covered by the media. Please visit https://www.tradebit.com for more details and also for clips and sound recordings.
This debut CD is an introduction to Christian''s music; it was recorded two days before the taxing ''Calx Project'' and conveys a deep sense of calm and tranquility - a musical calm that preceded a 60 hour storm of notes.
Christian''s goal for the future is to work as a composer in the film scoring & new media world.
