A Claude stems from a profound admiration for Claude Debussy and his legacy, a composer who thanks to his intense aesthetic, formal and timbral research has been a fundamental pillar and turning point for the 20th century's musical production. The program aims to be a family reunion, an ancestral tree starting with Claude Debussy and branching out into all the subsequent generations: Olivier Messiaen continued Debussy's research, merging it with his personal interest in color and non-European cultures; the Japanese Toru Takemitsu who pays homage to Olivier Messiaen and his rich harmonies; the American George Crumb, whose work takes the piano towards unheard-of timbres and considers Claude Debussy his greatest teacher; the Romanian Diana Rotaru, who pays tribute to the two great masters with her Debumessquisse and finally Benedetto Boccuzzi attempting to condense this legacy in his short piano piece (quasi) Notturno. Benedetto Boccuzzi (New York 1990) is an eclectic musician: pianist, composer, improviser and teacher. His repertoire as a solo pianist and chamber musician ranges from Frescobaldi and Purcell to the most recent contemporary compositions via Schubert, Debussy and Shostakovich. He performs regularly in Italy and Europe and collaborates with the flutist Alessandra RombolĂ , Equilibrio Dinamico Dance Company (Bari) and La Chambre Magique Theatre Company, for which he composed and performed the stage music for Oscar Wilde's SalomĂ© (directed by Michele Suozzo - Teatro Palladium, Rome). He specialized in the performance of the contemporary repertoire working with the Zahir Ensemble in Seville and the Teatro Lirico Sperimentale in Spoleto, he also worked as a piano accompanist at the Escola Superior de MĂșsica in Porto.
