Rodolfo Matulich (piano)
He got his diploma in pianoforte at the Music Academy of Alessandria, then he got a degree (PhD) in composition at the Regis University and at the Berklee College of Music of Boston (USA). He studied Film Scoring with Ennio Morricone at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena and orchestra conducting with Descev and Schumacher in Lugano. He has cut records for Emi and Warner Bros, has composed the soundtrack of the film " La Bella di Mosca", distributed by Medusa and based on a novel by Erofeev, and that of the film "Joy, scherzi di gioia" with C. Spaak and P: Leroy.
For RTI, the radiotelevision broadcasting of Italian Switzerland, he has composed the music for the radio serialized version of " La donna venuta dall'est" and " Natalia" as well as the documentaries " La croce del Giubileo ai Poli" and " Una testimonianza dal Polo nord" for ORP (Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi).
He has transcribed music by Mozart, Gounod, Bellini and Puccini for the Tokyo Quartet, the cadence of Bonifazio Asioli's" Concerto for flute and orchestra " for Andrea Griminelli, and he has also arranged pieces from Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana" for the Symphonic Band within the "Gianluigi Trovesi all'Opera" project.
He has supervised the arrangements for the film "Troppo Sole" by Giuseppe Bertolucci and for the 1996-97 advertising campaign for Barilla, together with Massimo Guantini, he arranged the famous piece "Love is Blue" for two pianos and orchestra, drawn from the CD "Sleepy Shores" published by Emi-Warner.
He has conducted symphonies by Tchaykovsky, Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms with the Symphonic Orchestras of Plovdiv, Shumen and Sofia and has contacts with the New York "Countdown Entertainment" society.
His most recent symphonic work is "Sinfonia della Croce" for orchestra dedicated to His Holiness John Paul II, which also contains a text written by Carol Wojtila himself: it is distributed by Warner Music (WEA) and it is often broadcast by the Vatican Radio and by Radio Maria.
In 2011 Rodolfo composed a new set of pieces for solo piano entitles "Crystal Dreams". The London première was a great success and the Cd is actually distributed worldwide by Crisler Music.
" I write the soundtrack of life as I see it, from my observatory suspended between earth and dreams….": this is how Rodolfo Matulich describes his approach to music and to the improvisation that unites classical music, opera and jazz and that characterizes his solo performances on the piano.
