Innocenzo Genna – The Leopard (Spotify)

“Initially ispired by the movie "Leopard", the artist created his homonymous piece. Original classical style with strictly organized pattern build up. Give some true meaning to your listening time by choosing this unique sound.”

-Nagamag.com

Artist shared few words about this song with us:

"This composition was inspired by a couple of notes I heard when watching the movie "the Leopard" of Luchino Visconti in February 2012. Because of this, I named the music with the temporary name "The Leopard" but, as often it happens, the temporary title became the final one. After some time, I watched the movie again, however I was not able to recognise the scene with the inspiring notes. It is not unusual to get inspiration from a few notes giving rise to a fully autonomous composition, with the result that the the final outcome appears completely different from the inspiring notes."

Innocenzo Genna – The Evolution of Things (Spotify)

“-The Evolution of Things-, a piano highlight in the world of neoclassicism. Absolutely harmonic and melodic minimalism. The sincere, kind-hearted tale of -Innocenzo Genna-.”

“-The Evolution of Things- фортепианная изюминка в мире неоклассицизма. Откровенный минимализм, гармоника и мелодичность. Искренняя, душевная история от -Innocenzo Genna-.”

Artist shared few words about this song with our magazine:

"This music was composed long time ago, in 2013. The inspiration started during a snowing night in Belgium, while returning from a very good jazz concert in Leuven (Bollani and others). I was inspired by some notes I heard during a performance and I kept them in my mind. During the night I started to compose and then it took some months to complete the entire piece. In the meanwhile, while trying to finalize the music, I was impressed by the news coming from Istanbul, namely because of the people protesting against the destruction of the Gezi Park, with the following brutal repression by the State security. The entire event let me think about how things evolve in life, and how everything is unpredictable at the end. "

Innocenzo Genna, called also Inno, has always lived music in multiple dimensions: as a musician, firstly performer and entertainer, and then composer, but also as a technology scholar. His interest in music is not only artistic and emotional, but also professional, because for years Inno has been working in the Internet and technology sector as a lawyer and policy expert, so as to be involved in the major political debates concerning music and technology: from P2P to online piracy, from online platforms to the liberalization of collecting societies, up to the recent European copyright reform.

Such an intense professional activity enriched Inno’s musical vocation, while adapting his classical practice with modern and pop piano, blues and jazz, so as arranging the various genres into a personal compositional style. The many trips in Italy and abroad have contributed to creating the context of images, memories and fantasies from which his compositions are born.

In 2007 Inno settled in Brussels where it found new creative inspiration through the contact with the dynamism and the international ésprit of both capital city and European institutions, the creative Belgian surrealism, and also because of the rainy and melancholy climate of the place. In 2016 he completed his first collection of piano compositions "Brussels Stories", while a second CD is scheduled to be released in 2020.

The piano compositions of Innocenzo Genna fall within the categories of minimalism and modern classic, with frequent combinations into blues and jazz. He is similarly conservative as a composer, for his music drawing heavily on harmonic and melodic practices found in 18th and 19th-century European compositions. His repertoire is freely accessible through his website and social networks such as Youtube and Soundcloud, while being available also on streaming platforms such as Spotify and Deezer.

Innocenzo Genna – The Persian tales (Spotify)

“A charming composition -The Persians Tales- from the neoclassical album -Post Quarantine Piano-, when immersed discloses surprising execution, composer Innocenzo Genna expressed his technique through harmony and fine texture.”

“Композиция -The Persians Tales- с очаровательного, неоклассического альбома -Post Quarantine Piano-, при погружении раскрывает удивительную форму исполнения в лице композитора Innocenzo Genna; выраженную технику композиции, её гармонию и фактуру.”

-Nagamag.com

Artist shared with us few words behind the source of inspiration here:

"...This music was created following a challenging trip in Iran during Easter of 2016. Just few days after return from Teheran I was sitting on the sofa and watching TV. It was night and I ended up in a documentary about the wars of Alexander the Great in Persia. The documentary described the travel of Alexander through places which I had visited few days earlier. It was night and I started to improvise a music matching the images on the TV screen and, in approximately one hour, the fundamental part of the melodies was created. The entire compositions was finalized during the following 3 weeks..."

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

Innocenzo Genna:
My solo-piano compositions of Innocenzo Genna fall within the categories of neoclassical, with frequent combinations into blues and jazz. I am similarly conservative as a composer, for my music drawing heavily on harmonic and melodic practices found in 18th and 19th-century European compositions


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Innocenzo Genna:
I always lived music in multiple dimensions: as a musician, firstly performer and entertainer, and then composer, but also as a technology scholar. My interest in music is not only artistic and emotional, but also professional, because for years I have been working in the Internet and technology sector as a lawyer and policy expert, so as to be involved in the major political debates concerning music and technology: from P2P to online piracy, from online platforms to the liberalization of collecting societies, up to the recent European copyright reform. Such an intense professional activity enriched my musical vocation, while adapting my classical practice with modern and pop piano, blues and jazz, so as arranging the various genres into a personal compositional style. The many trips in Italy and abroad have contributed to creating the context of images, memories and fantasies from which his compositions are born.


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

Innocenzo Genna:
When I was 4 years old my father forgot to pick me up from the nursery. While waiting for my father arrival, the nuns left me own the refectory where an old piano stand. I spent a couple of hours trying to play it, I was aware that it was not a toy, it was something to be treated with respect. From that point onwards, I was fascinated by pianos


Nagamag:
When did you start to compose music?

Innocenzo Genna:
The father of a friend of mine had a grand piano and lots of jazz and blues music sheets. he invited me to play them. For me it was a kind of revelation, because I finally found out the name and the notes of music I have been looking for (there was not Youtube an that time). Bacharach, Mancini, Lewis, ecc . It was a re relation from me. By reading such notes, I realized that there is something even greater than playing music: composing music. I was 16 years old.


Nagamag:
When did you start to publish your music?

Innocenzo Genna:
Very late, because normally I was playing in public as an entertainer and a club pianist, not as a composer. I always found my music to be too delicate and introspective to be played in events with a large audience. However, some people accidentally heard my compositions during private events, and they strongly urged me to publish it.


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Innocenzo Genna:
Keith Emeson "Inferno - Main Title Theme"


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

Innocenzo Genna:
Ryuichi Sakamoto "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence"

Innocenzo Genna – Dreams (keep me awake) (Spotify)

“Post Quarantine Piano from Innocenzo Genna can be easily compared to icy raindrops flowing unevenly down a fogged window and loudly falling on the windowsill. Music works wonders, and Innocenzo Genna is one of the wizards of the emerald city of freezing rains.”

“Post Quarantine Piano от Innocenzo Genna можно легко сравнить с ледяными каплями дождя, неравномерно стекающими по запотевшему окну и звонко падающими на подоконник. Музыка творит чудеса, а Innocenzo Genna один из волшебников изумрудного города ледяных дождей. ”
