Fabrizio Puglisi was born in Caltanissetta (Italy) in 1962.
He studied piano with Lia Lacagnina Migliore and Vincenzo Mannino, and composition with Eliodor Sollima.
He received his diploma cum laude in piano in 1982, at the Vincenzo Bellini’s Conservatory in Palermo. He has attended master classes of piano and analysis (among his teachers: Marco de Natale and Eliodoro Sollima). He is a member of the SIDAM (Italian Society for Music Analysis), since its foundation.
His works (published by Pizzicato / Udine, PizzicatoVerlag Helvetia – Adliswil / CH, Carrara / Bergamo, Armelin / Padova, Studiomusicalicata / Noto) were radio-broadcasted, performed and won awards in competitions and festivals of contemporary music. His catalogue can be found on www.cidim.it.
In 2001 some of his works (“Zanzibar“, suite for piano for 4 hands and “Il giovane Alembroth“, for solo piano) were included as mandatory pieces in the regulations of the competition “Piccole mani – P. Squartini” of Perugia. Specialized press has expressed gratifying opinions: G. Gioanola says on “Playing news:” […] Puglisi uses the enlarged tone with grace and good taste, the slight deviations in atonal and polytonal sense do not cause confusion or loss of the sense of musical direction. […] Among all the pieces, we mention the spiritoso orologio a pendolo” (December 2002 review of “The Young Alembroth”) and M. Gioiosa on “Musica e Scuola”: “Mr. Puglisi’s attention on piano pedagogy continues with these two collections of interesting pieces written with wisdom and taste” (July / August 1995 review of the “Quattro Pezzi umoristici e bizzarri” and of “4 Brevi pezzi” for piano 4 hands).
In December 2008, the publisher Pizzicato has released two CDs containing the recording of much of the published and unpublished works.
Recently, valuable and flattering opinions were expressed, on the “Twelve Studies” for piano by famous personalities from the Italian musical world and from international exponents of the piano world.
