Neoclassical music defined as the modern classical music. As the well known Classical music refers from the 18th to 19th century, the corresponded music compositions of the 20th century have been categorized as Neoclassical. The used instruments and the music style is not necessarily affected by the ages but Neoclassical music is mostly referenced and credited to the era that the song has been written as well as the era of its composers/artists. The most famous instruments which may be listened to a Neoclassical track are Piano, Violin, Double Bass, Cello, Harp, Flutes while the list doesn’t end here and the combination of multiple instruments, the amount of each one and even solo performances of a single instrument may vary. Tempo and rhythm also is not limited to this music genre but the dramatic majority of Neoclassical music compositions have no lyrics/vocals.

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Lorenzo Tempesti:
Modern classical music Piano crossover


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Lorenzo Tempesti:
I define myself as a composer, specialized in piano and soundtrack music. At the beginning I was mostly writing music for videos, documentaries, commercials in my region. Meanwhile, I used to play in various music bands, among which Silvia Michelotti and Cushini di fanfole. My personal soloist career started with the CD "While the others sleep" in 2016. I've continued distributing a wide production music library through my websites www.bestproductionmusic.com and www.suonimusicaidee.it, on which it is possible to request and obtain licenses for using my tracks in videos, apps and other projects. My music production has increased in the last two years: in 2019 I've released three Digital 45s (Valzer della dogaressa, Leonardo and The flat sea) and one single (6 minutes - 44). At the end of the year I've started also a parallel electronic music project called "Storm(s)". In January 2020 the new modern classical single "Last Bourbon" and the EP "Still Alive" as Storm (s) were released. The "Suite for Malta" EP, dedicated to the Mediterranean island, was released in April 2020.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Lorenzo Tempesti:
Not sure of which is the most important among these three: - the immersion in music listening I've lived in my parents' house - my first music keyboard, when I was 8 - the nights I spent composing in my room, when I was a teenager


Nagamag:
What is the impact of the new music distribution system for an artist like you?

Lorenzo Tempesti:
Since piano music is still a "niche", for me this is a great opportunity. From selling 300-400 records now I can count 30/40,000 monthly listeners, spread all around the world instead only in my region and country. And many opportunities came also from the contact with other artists, with which I exchange ideas and start collaborations.


Nagamag:
What is your role as an artist in this Covid-2019 emergency?

Lorenzo Tempesti:
I am participating in many charity and cultural initiatives related to the virus emergency: in particular I took part in the realization of the song "Il cuore resta aperto" written by Giulia Daici and played "from home" together with 12 other artists of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, to fund our local hospital. I am also playing in FB live streamings together with other pianists for the live series "Pianisti in quarantena".


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Lorenzo Tempesti:
Eric Clapton "I shot the Sheriff"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Lorenzo Tempesti:
Bruno Sanfilippo Piano Textures 5 III

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Rikard Mathisson:
Neoclassic, Contemporary Piano, Ambient Piano


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Rikard Mathisson:
I took piano lessons from when I was seven years old, and continued doing this until I graduated from high school. In the teenage I had the usual "play in a band" dream, and it never really grew on me, but unfortunately it made me put the piano aside and focus on the keyboard for many years. I even played in a fairly successful country band for a few years but finally laid of the keyboard carreer as a broke musician. However, my mid-life crisis woke me up and at the age of 40 I suddenly realized I needed to become the pianist I've always been. So out of the blue I started write piano music, to my own surprise, and there you go!


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Rikard Mathisson:
As a small kid, we had an old black upright piano with candlesticks and chipped keys at home. I started playing on that broken piano around the age of four and the connection was strong and real. My mother bougt a cheap polish built from particleboard which was my main instruments for twenty years. A little more than ten years ago from today I got hold of a beautiful grand old upright Zimmermann piano from 1906, which have taken the place in my heart where the piano of my childhood once belonged.


Nagamag:
What is most important with music for you?

Rikard Mathisson:
I believe strongly in connectling to peoples emotions, which makes the music have a value of it's own. I've once said that touching one heart would be sufficient for me, but now when I have reached out to ten thousands of hearts, I've realized that there are no such limitations. I want my music to reach out to people, that is the most important to me.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Rikard Mathisson:
Queen "Bohemian Rhapsody"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Rikard Mathisson:
William Ogmundsen "Blithe and Bonny"
