Carlo Pucci

Born in Capannori (Lucca) in 1966, Pucci started to play organ and arrange music for his village’s choir at a young age. He developed musically with the Filarmonica “G. Puccini” of Colle di Compito, of which he later became the conductor. In 1990, he completed a degree in clarinet performance and, after nine years, one in composition under the guidance of Pietro Rigacci at the Istituto Musicale “L. Boccherini” in Lucca. He has written many compositions in various genres, from classical to symphonic and contemporary music, including: “Nevicata” and “Elegia”, two Lieder for Soprano, Clarinet and Piano; “Heaven Rhapsody”, for Alto Sax and Piano, a fusion of classical and jazz styles; “Quartetto No. 1 in E minor”, for string quartet; “Kammermusik No. 1”, for 14 players including strings, winds, piano and percussion; “Candelas”, chamber music piece for strings, flute, oboe, bass clarinet, piano, and narrator; and “La strada per l'Eden”, trio for clarinet, alto sax, and piano in contemporary style. Pucci composed also for wind band, including religious military and symphonic marches, as well as entertaining music such as “Magic Rag” (Scomegna Edizioni Musicali), and two important overtures: “Long wait” and “Free Lands Rhapsody” (Scomegna Edizioni Musicali). Pucci is professor of theory, clarinet, saxophone, and piano at various private schools of music and prestigious philharmonic societies. He is the conductor of the Filarmonica “G. Puccini” of Colle di Compito and of the “Corale S. Cecilia” of Marlia, both active in the province of Lucca. With the Corale S. Cecilia he has performed more than two hundred concerts presenting religious, operatic, and classical music, as well as his own compositions for four-part chorus. Currently, Pucci studies orchestra conducting with Gustav Kuhn at the ”Accademia Montegral.”
