Composer and performer
Matteo Belli (Florence, b. 1987) is an Italian composer, conductor, and pianist.
In his music, he envisions dense harmonic fields arranged in transparent textures, with a dialectical oscillation between assertiveness and nebulosity. He delves into visual arts, literature, drama and contemporary issues as meaningful sources of inspiration.
