The Piatti Phenomenon
A Neo-Romantic Composer
It’s no exaggeration to say that Polo Piatti has broken boundaries with his unique approach to classical music. Whether you’ve been to one of his many live concerts or you’ve heard some of his fabulous recordings, you’ll see why they’re renowned for their contagious melodies and highly emotional content. Piatti's music is really different: much too melodic to be catalogued as "contemporary" and at the same time much too complicated to be considered "crossover". Piatti is not apologetic to create earworms, composing music that is lyrical, universally appealing or being called sentimental. On the contrary, he is proud to write music that is widely popular instead of being elitist. For him, this is what his neo-romantic music is all about.
