Andrea Balzani was born in 1981 and began studying music at a very young age with the flautist Claudio Caponi. He later moved to the guitar, then keyboard and piano, studying under the maestros Mariano D’Amelio, Walter Fischetti and Carlo Dominici. He has been part of several pop/rock groups and worked on soundtracks for documentaries, advertisements and theatre productions. Over the years he developed an interest in experimental composition, taking numerous lessons and masterclasses on the subject. A versatile pianist, keyboard player and composer, his repertoire is largely geared to the search for new or unusual resonances, and the rediscovery and valorisation of little-known composers. His recordings include several releases both as a solo artist and in collaboration with others. He is currently studying composition with Alessandro Cusatelli, and is a founding member of of the Hildegard association.
