>Massimo Di Gesu


For a long time I have known and esteemed Maestro Massimo Di Gesu whom I consider an outstanding musician and a person of great cultural commitment.

Bruno Bettinelli


He is a composer working in a stylistic perspective of refined cultural reflection, focusing on the symbols hidden in the sound and in the musical syntax. ... His work impressed the audience, even the youngest members of it, who are seldom used to "strong" music (which in this case, due to its emotional dramatic contrasts, was of the strongest). I was particularly compelled by the middle movement, which surely succeeded in the artist’s stated aim: to fascinate.

Quirino Principe in a review of the world premiere of Di Gesu’s string quartet, Verdigo at La Scala Theatre


[Di Gesu's music] represents a breath of fresh air in the doldrums of the ‘contemporary music’ malaise.

Peter Bradley-Fulgoni (pianist) in ‘The Mystery of Modern Dissonance’ (arq [Architectural Research Quarterly] volume 16, No. 2, pp 190-192, 2012; Cambridge University Press). See here (full article) and here.


The piece [Lapillus] is very engaging, expressive and formally intriguing. I also appreciate the inspiringly idiomatic instrumental writing: in terms of performability and effectiveness, it seems a piece written by a guitarist.

“Lapillus” is an excellent achievement and an important contribution to the guitar repertoire.

Andrea Dieci


>Biography

Massimo Di Gesu attained the diplomas in Piano (1992) and Composition (1995) at the Milan Conservatory. He studied composition within the school of Maestro Bruno Bettinelli and piano with Jole Mantegazza and Anita Porrini, one of the favourite pupils of Cortot and Benedetti Michelangeli,  refining his skills under the guidance of Valerio Premuroso. Further academic experience in the field of composition took place at the Petrassi Academy, the University of Central England in Birmingham, and the University of Leeds.


Di Gesu's distinctive atonal idiom stems from an idea of musical discourse in which each element is perceived as necessary, inevitable and having a gravitational attraction to every other element.
