Giuseppe Di Bianco has emerged in recent years as one of the most compelling and interesting Italian choral composers of his generation. He holds degrees in Piano, Composition, Choral conducting and Music Didactics from the Salerno and Naples Conservatories, graduating summa cum laude with distinction in Foreign Languages and Modern Literatures, with a post Lauream Degree at Rome University. His training include piano studies with György Sándor, compositional studies under Enrico Buondonno, and advanced courses at Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena and Scuola di Musica of Fiesole (Florence) with Giacomo Manzoni, Salvatore Sciarrino, Luis de Pablo, and Peter Maxwell Davies.
Active as a pianist, teacher and composer, with a particular interest in choral composition, he has gained international recognition winning first prizes in many composition competitions, including 1st prize at the 13th International Trophy of Choral Composition Competition, 2016. His choral music has been performed in Italy and abroad (Vatican City, France, Germany, Denmark, Latvia, Netherlands, Portugal, Philippines, Russia, and the United States) and included in International Festivals such as MITO Settembre Musica and the St. Petersburg International Choral Festival.
He has been invited to serve as guest composer at the University of North Carolina and at the Fine Arts and Music University of Aichi, Japan. In 2013 Di Bianco was chosen for the “Invisible Cities Project,” an international composition project inspired by Italo Calvino’s book Le città invisibili. His choral compositions are published by Federcoritrentino and Feniarco Ed. in Italy and by Композитор Publishing House, St. Petersburg.
He currently lives and works in Maiori on the enchanting Coast of Amalfi.
