Italian composer Stefano Gervasoni studied composition with European masters such as Luigi Nono, Helmut Lachenmann, Brian Ferneyhough, and György Ligeti and his work reflects these influences, as well as his time spent at IRCAM. “Yet despite this range of international influences, something identifiably Italianate has persisted in his music,” claims The Guardian’s Andrew Clements, “whether in its moments of playful allusion or expansive lyricism, its disorienting changes of direction or its Sciarrino-like scurries and whispering asides.”
