Giovanni Piacentini is a composer whose body of work is as diverse as his cultural background. Born in Mexico City to an Italian doctor, an opera lover, and a Mexican figurative painter, he was exposed to a wide array of artistic expressions that helped shape his musical vision.
After an immersive two years at the Manhattan School of Music and in the New York City composition circle, Giovanni earned his M.A. in Composition graduating with honors. He has released three solo albums which have received numerous glowing reviews and continue to get international radio play.
Since then, Giovanni has been very active as a composer receiving commissions and working with a variety of ensembles including the harp duo, “Duo Scorpio” in NYC, the Irish violin and viola duet “Collailm Duo”, the concert series “Music of Reality” in Boston, MA, acclaimed violinist Tim Fain, the “Mexiam” festival in San Francisco, CA, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, the Lyris Quartet in Los Angeles CA, and the UCLA wind ensemble.
He is currently writing a new chamber piece commissioned by acclaimed Romanian cellist Ovidiu Marinescu and a large scale guitar concerto for legendary Guitarist Eliot Fisk. His work “Alebrijes” for solo flute was featured in a dissertation thesis on emerging Latin American composers at the University of Utah. He was nominated for an Independent Music Award.
