I try to mix piano and composition in order to give pupils a 360 view on music.
I strongly believe that if a student gets involved into writing and analysing music he will play it with much more passion and awareness.
Hi, my name is Silvio Bartoli and I was born in Monfalcone in 1989, Italy. I started studying piano from an early age initially in Popular and Jazz music with Francesco Contadini and Giorgio Pacorig. Soon after I switched to Classical studies with Maestro Mariarosa Pozzi which gave me the solid foundation required to obtain my Bachelor’s degree from the Conservatory of Trieste with Maestro Claudio Crismani. In 2012 I began to study classical composition with Maestro Stefano Bellon, composer and teacher who trained me; I enrolled the last year bachelor dregree in 2018 with Maestro Fabio Nieder, graduating 110/110 cum Laude.
In 2015 I wrote for the cultural association "Woland" a piece for piano solo within the "Prometheus Project", a project based on synaesthetic research (connection between sound and color) of the Russian composer Aleksandar Skrijabin. In 2016 I collaborated in the soundtrack composition of Max Reinhardt's 1911 silent film "Eine Venetianische Nacht", composition for large wind ensemble in neoclassical style, whose projection and live performance took place at "Le Giornate del Cinema Muto" of the same year, one of the most important international festivals dedicated to silent films (held annually in Pordenone), receiving great acclaim from the critics. Also in 2016 I won a composition competition in Trieste with a scholarship/internship at the University of Toronto with a premiere. My compositions are performed in Italy, Canada and the Netherlands.
I had participated in masterclasses with Maestro Salvatore Sciarrino, Maestro Alessandro Solbiati, Maestro Peter-Jan Wagemans, Maestro Hans Koolmees, Maestro Robin de Raaf, Maestro Rene Uijlenhoet, Maestro Chaya Czernowin, Maestro Stefano Gervasoni. Applying to three different schools, "Trinity Laban" (London), Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp and the "Codarts University of the Arts" (Rotterdam), and having been accepted by all three, I decided to attend the second year of the BMUS in Rotterdam, within the European project "Erasmus Plus" (frst and only non-percussion student of the Tartini Conservatory to have been admitted to the Rotterdam Arts University until now); I studied composition with Maestro Hans Koolmees and electronic composition with Maestro Rene Uijlenhoet.
The experience abroad has given me the opportunity to forge important relationships with young concert performers, writing piece specifically for them. In 2018 I won a competition organized by Maestro Emmanuele Baldini, artistic director of the Chamber Orchestra of Valdivia (Chile) and concertmaster of the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra (Brazil); the competition consisted of composing a movement (the fourth) of the "Suite Verdi", a composition based on the nineteenth-century symphony form on Verdi themes and arias. I won the frst prize both given both from the popular jury as well as from the orchestra, with a performance of the piece “Entropy”, dedicated to the OCV.
In 2018 I won the "Premio Nazionale delle Arti - categoria C, composizione per orchestra", a competition organized by the Italian Ministry of University and Research, with the piece "Glitches", a tribute to Claude Debussy and Gioacchino Rossini. The jury was formed by Alessandro Sbordoni, Gilberto Bosco, Rosario Mirigliano, Marco Pedrazzini and Fausto Sebastiani. The composition was performed by the ONCI at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.
On the same year I got accepted by the Juilliard School (New York) and The Royal College of Music (London) choosing to attend the Londoner institution and the year after, on September 2019, my chamber opera “Mal di Terra” was premiered in Macerata, Italy at Lauro Rossi Theatre.
Beside composing contemporary classical music, I also write for images, commercials, films and advertising and teaching.
