Notes and Editorial Reviews

Night Prayers, David Ianni’s op. 79, is also the name of his current album, which presents a selection of his own compositions. In addition to his career as a pianist, which began in Luxembourg as a sixteen-year-old, his greatest passion has always been to compose. He has already written over 100 works. At age 15, David Ianni achieved the “Premier Prix avec grande distinction” upon completion of his piano studies with Daniel Fels at the Conservatoire d’Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg. Following this, he studied with such teachers as Anatol Ugorski and Dirk Joeres until completing his studies at the Maastricht Conservatory in 2005. He concertized in many European countries as well as in India and Japan. The Luxembourg pianist’s Read more compositions express harmony and contemplation. This includes both sensitive and mystical pieces as well as the musical realization of prayers: Night Prayers. As a devout Christian, Ianni pursues the idea of transcendence in his compositions, and wishes to thus touch the emotions of listeners. Read less
