Listen to Goodbye performed by Marta Sejkorová and the City of Prague Philharmonic conducted by Polo Piatti
Polo Piatti is an award-winning British-Argentine composer and concert pianist, and one of the very few high-profile international musicians concentrating exclusively on the creation, performance, and promotion of melodic, universally appealing classical music. He is considered a leading neo-romantic composer for the concert hall. Piatti believes very strongly that harmonious music is able to generate deep positive emotions, and in doing so, contribute greatly to a much better world today.
Widely considered a pioneer performer of non-jazz piano improvisations, he completed several tours since his youth as a soloist and with orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, North, and South America. His compositions continue being performed and loved all over the world for their evocative and passionate character.
His latest commissions include his multi-faith oratorio ‘Libera Nos’ (to be world-premiered by the London Mozart Players and the Hastings Sinfonia in the UK, in November 2021), his ‘Christmas Concerto’ for Guitar & Orchestra, and his ‘Old World Concerto’ for Cello & Orchestra, premiered in May 2022.
Very recently Piatti has been privately commissioned by his most fervent benefactor again, this time to write his very first Violin Concerto, to be premiered in 2024.
Piatti is a member of the Royal Society Of Musicians Of Great Britain, the Ivor's Academy, the British Music Writers Council, and a Patron of the British Music Society, among many other prestigious organizations. Currently, Piatti's works are currently published by Goodmusic Publishing and Impromptu Music Publishing. MORE >
