Notes and Editorial Reviews

Eric Maestri, born in 1980, has a trajectory toward composition that is equal parts expected and unexpected. The former includes formal education in Brescia and Turin, then Strasbourg, with additional training in Paris. The latter includes a detour into philosophy in Turin and span of six years, in his 20s when he was not active at all in composition. One already gets the sense from these basic facts that he is a composer critical of every move and a man with much more to offer than a mere experience in sound. His experience in realms far beyond music have left an indelible mark on the sensations that he decides to turn into music.
