Claudio Passilongo DENMARK
Claudio Passilongo is an Italian composer and pianist living in Denmark. Music has always been part of his life, since he began to compose and play various instruments as autodidact at the age of 9. After graduating with full marks at the Conservatory of Music in Naples, he attended the Accademia Chigiana composition class by Salvatore Sciarrino, and the Orchestration masterclass by Andrea Portera, from Scuola di Fiesole. His interests are not confined in music alone, so he got a Master Degree in Foreign Literatures. Then music professionalism came by, and Claudio’s works began to be performed worldwide, both as pure music and as soundtracks for movies, short-movies, cartoons and theatrical plays.
Among his music for short movies and film we can mention: the film Assolo(Ischia Global film fest, 2014, Explorer Entertainment, Ita/Usa), the short movies Solidamore (on LA3, Pistoia Film Fest 2011), Vincere due volte (Fondazione Quattro stelle2014), La discesa (Mitreo Film Fest 2012)”, Sposi (Calitri sponz fest, 2014). His soundtrack for a cartoon has reached the final stage of the International Lavagnino price (Oscar-prize winner Luis Bacalov and David Donatello-prize Francesco Piersanti among the judges), E’ cche famiglia, and Tra I vicoli di Napoli both directed by Renato di Meo, performed in many Neapolitan theatres (Sannazaro, 2010, Bolìvar, 2011) and in Sesto Campano, (Isernia, 2010).
