Alessandro Lucchetti

Fantasy on Themes from Giacomo Puccini's "Tosca"

The versatile Alessandro Lucchetti is a composer, arranger and pianist whose works have been performed at major events and festivals and in concert halls throughout the world. One of the founders of the musical trend Neo-romantica, he has for years been a dedicated researcher into the fusion of musical genres and culture, including jazz, rock, oriental music and Afro-American themes. He has made countless arrangements of both classical and popular music, and in 2009 he wrote the Fantasy on Themes from "Tosca" for the Albek Duo. He also transcribed and arranged Manuel de Falla's Seguidilla Murciana for violin and piano.
