"…each page of our young contemporary is a masterpiece of sensitive diffraction, as intelligently written as deeply felt…" Pierre Gervasoni, Le Monde, 17.5.2019
Alex Nante’s work, ranging from solo to orchestral pieces, is characterised by a nocturnal and dreamlike atmosphere which strives to access a spiritual realm. The influence of Eastern and Western mystical poetry is particularly obvious in some of his vocal pieces. The young Argentinian studied with George Benjamin, Peter Eötvös, Stefano Gervasoni, Luis Mucillo, Santiago Santero, and Daniel D’Adamo, and holds diplomas from the Conservatoire de Paris, the National University of Arts of Argentina, Université Paris 8, and Conservatoire de Reims. Currently he is a PhD candidate at the King’s College London. In addition to his composing activities, he is a trained guitarist, pianist, and conductor.
