Luca Lombardi, Italian composer, born December 24, 1945 in Rome. He studied piano and composition in Rome, Florence, Vienna, Cologne and Berlin, among others with Karlheinz Stockhausen, Bernd-Alois Zimmermann and Paul Dessau. He earned a PhD in German Language and Literature at Rome University. From 1973 to 1993 he taught composition at the Conservatories of Pesaro and Milan.He wrote more than 160 compositions, including four operas (Faust. Un travestimento, 1991; Dmitri oder der Künstler und die Macht, 2000; Prospero, 2006; Il Re nudo, 2009), music for orchestra (among which Terra, 2007), chamber music (among which Warum? Secondo quartetto per archi, 2006) and for solo instruments (among which Nel vento, con Ariel for flute, 2004).He is a member of the Academy of Arts, Berlin. He is co-author of a treatise on orchestration (Instrumentation in der Musik des XX. Jahrhunderts, Celle, Germany, 1985). A selection of his writings was published in the book Construction of Freedom and other Writings (in German and English), edited by Juergen Thym (Baden-Baden, 2006).Over the years he reached a more and more accomplished synthesis of his different musical experiences, with a particular reference to the music of the great tradition: from Beethoven to Stravinskij, Bartók and Shostakovich and, as for the opera, to Rossini, Verdi and Puccini - however never from a nostalgic and retrospective position, but from an absolutely contemporary one.At the end of 2008 he acquired the Israeli citizenship and lives since then both in Marino (Rome) and in Tel Aviv.
