Giulio Genovese

Music Composer

Profile

Giulio Genovese is an example of innovation in contemporary music. While his ambit lies within the european tradition he is at ease in absorbing the teachings of American film music. His works range from chamber music to the symphonic and vocal, and are a perfect setting for the influence that the music of American cinema - and of French d'auteur films even more so - have had in forming his own idiom which emerges as a new expressive language. This contributes to reviving the contemporary European musical tradition and to stimulate real interest in the listener while keeping alive the expression and significance of the message the music conveys. Genovese, therefore, does not strive towards the main objective of a composer to arouse new emotions in listening by means of experimental music but instead by using traditional language and orchestras.
