Extraordinary virtuosity, superb technique.
His highly original and unique ‘crossover’ style is cultivated from a very young age through the study of classical music and Neapolitan technique. His background has given a remarkable boost to his passion and ability to span styles: classical, jazz, fusion and pop merge in his hands.
His distinctiveness lies in the extreme simplicity and naturalness of moving from baroque to soundtrack and from tango to Neapolitan song, just as in his performances Debussy could be found in ‘Torna a Surriento’ and Scarlatti emerges in the Jazz piece.

Melody is the essence of his compositions while virtuosity predominates in his re-elaborations. Listening to his music with our eyes closed naturally leads us to imagine scenes or images in motion and is therefore by its very nature perfect as a commentary for film works or major documentaries.
