We used to think that “classical” music was the past, now grown old and obsolete. But this is false. Nowadays the number of classical musicians is huge and they write and play a music which is modern, original and innovative. This new music is a challenge for the public and for the “old school”, but it is certainly something to explore, to understand and appreciate. Arciuli gives us the key to this wonderful world: even the less passionate would be touched by this new melody.The pianist Emanuele Arciuli is one of the most original and interesting performers on today’s classical music scene and he regularly performs at major concert halls and festivals. He teaches Contemporary Music at Accademia di Pinerolo, is a professor at the Conservatory in Bari and a frequent guest professor at many American universities.
