Her debut in 1994 with the album "Les sons et les parfums", dedicated to compositions by Debussy, Ravel and Satie. In 1997 "Journey to Prague and in 1998 Alessandra released four albums dedicated to the music of Gurdjieff / De Hartmann, Erik Satie, Scott Joplin, and Philip Glass. Her interpretation of "The Premier Gnossienne" was chosen by the director Guy Ritchie for the soundtrack of the film "Revolver." In 2006 Alessandra finally devotes an entire album to her own compositions: in "Who will give me wings" she is author, performer and producer. And yet, a year later, she published "The Golden Fly", sixteen original compositions for piano, followed, later in 2008 by "Way Out", for the prestigious british label LTM, 16 tracks where the sound of piano blends with naturalness and balance with the rhythmic power of the drums.
Collaborations have always contributed to the evolution of Alessandra's artistic research; with the ethno-rock group Agricantus, with the swedish conceptual artist Paulina Wallenberg Olsson and with the saxophonist Nicholas Alesini and the english composer Mark Tranmer, with whom she recently recorded the album "The Red Pages" that is going to be released sept. 2010. The free movement of sounds has also made possible the meeting between Alessandra Celletti and one of the leading exponents of contemporary experimental electronic music, Hans Joachim Roedelius. The mutual musical interest came out stronger and materialized in "Sustanza di cose sperata" ("Sustanza of things hoped for") an album recorded entirely in the studio in the winter of 2009, published simultaneously with "Alessandra Celletti plays Baldassare Galuppi" an album dedicated to six sonatas by Baldassare Galuppi, a venetian author of the eighteenth century from whose vast production Alessandra has selected six sonatas originally written for harpsichord.
In the concerts Alessandra Celletti's aim is to create a sound path and develop the potential of interaction between different musical languages (classical, avant-garde, pop, improvisation). Curiosity and the drive for researching new expressions lead her to the experiment new paths, even for the eldest repertoire, as for the project "Alessandra Celletti plays Baldassarre Galupp"i. Alessandra Celletti's music is a kaleidoscope in which the various nuances of her art of composition find space, an imaginary visual and audio world, that with tenacity and tireless, swirling enthusiasm, Alessandra Celletti chooses to represent. sources: http://www.alessandracelletti.com/ FB page http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=82860469285&ref=ts#/pages/ALESSANDRA-CELLETTI/41015068996?v=info&viewas=1076869314 www.myspace.com/alessandracelletti Read more on Last.fm.
