"A precious album. Pure gold" - ROCKERILLA MAGAZINE
Alessandra Celletti, pianist, came to prominence within the Italian musical scene in 1994 with her self-produced album “Les sons et les parfums” (“The sounds and the scents”), featuring pages by Debussy, Ravel and Satie.Since then, her musical and artistic path has brought her to work on a number of projects, some of which marked sudden departures from classical music.
Closer to an expressive restraint than to virtuosity, Alessandra studied at the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome and, after graduating, went on to specialize in French music between the XIX and the XX centuries. In 1997 her second publication, “Viaggio a Praga” (“Trip to Prague”), brought her to the capital of the Czech Republic to approach first-hand the piano music of Leos Janacek and its interpretation.
Back in Italy, she started a collaboration with the Kha record label, for which she recorded monographies dedicated to the music of Gurdjieff/De Hartmann, Erik Satie, Scott Joplin and Philip Glass.
It was, however, only in 2006 that Alessandra Celletti finally published an album with her own compositions: “Chi mi darà le ali” (“Who will give me wings”) saw her in the roles of author, interpreter and producer.She was noticed by Joachim Roedelius, one of the foremost contemporary music composers, who invited her to play at the Lunz Festival in Austria in August 2007.
One year after her debut as author, Kha Records is proud to announce the publication, in November 2007, of “The Golden Fly”, sixteen inspired and intense compositions for piano. It is an original new flight on music’s own wings, free and nimble, that never tires of going higher to explore the most intimate colours of the soul and of the emotions. It is an album, on occasion, profoundly indebted to Alessandra Celletti’s favourite repertoire, with an affectionate homage to Erik Satie, to whom the track “Talking to Satie” is dedicated.
