Pianist and composer, Giuseppe Di Leo approached the world of music since he was a child. At the tender age of 4 he felt attracted to the keys of a piano and from that moment on he dedicated his entire life to music. Under the guidance of his father Enzo, his first mentor, he obtained, at the age of 19, with top marks, the piano diploma at the “Umberto Giordano” Conservatory in Foggia, after having participated in various piano competitions, winning on multiple occasions. He holds concerts in various Italian musical societies. His repertoire ranges from Baroque to contemporary music. He perfected himself under the guidance of the illustrious pianist Bruno Mezzena, following the High Piano Specialization course at the Pescarese Music Academy.

​As he grew up, he developed the idea of further deepening his musical studies, taking the path of composition. He began to write as a self-taught person, first trying his hand at transcriptions and arrangements for piano solo and 4 hands, including a transcription of the famous Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by F. Liszt, of Rossini-Liszt’s tarantella, and of A. Kachaturian’s Dance of the Sabers. and of the Concerto for piano and orchestra n.2 by S. Rachmaninov. Subsequently he acquired the awareness of being able to write original music. From that moment a new phase of study and continuous research began which today accompanies him in every new idea or experiment. Already a student of Stefano Cucci, close collaborator of Ennio Morricone, he graduated with honors in Composition at the “L. Refice” Conservatory of Music in Frosinone, under the guidance of Enrico Marocchini, worthy heir of the school of Goffredo Petrassi, one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century. His production as a composer is varied and includes numerous piano pieces, including the Sonata n.1 and the Fantasia “Infausto Messaggero”, chamber pieces, such as the “Notturno Oblivion” for alto sax and piano and symphonic pieces, such as the symphonic dance “Fête du village”, “…sketches…” variations for small orchestra on an original theme and “Onde”, a symphonic poem in one movement. One of his compositions for flute and piano entitled “Funny Bird” won a scholarship at the “L. Refice” Conservatory in Frosinone and was performed and awarded at the “Severino Gazzelloni” International Festival. Particular attention is also paid to the sacred polyphonic genre, which includes works such as the Missa Brevis in G and the Ave Maria. His oratorio “Via Crucis”, on the passion and resurrection of Christ, for soloists, choir and symphony orchestra, is one of a kind. Some of these compositions were performed in the version for organ and choir on the occasion of the eleventh edition of “World Organ Day”, the World Organ Day to commemorate Johann Sebastian Bach, coinciding with the World Day for the Growth of Culture. Many of his compositions are published through the most current commercial channels (Amazon Publishing, ArrangeMe, MusicaNeo). In 2019 he published his first recording work “Dalle images to sound”, a collection of pieces for solo piano. The following year “Risvegli” was released, a collection of orchestral compositions in cinematic style. Expert in the soundtrack of cinematographic works, documentaries and commercials, he created the soundtrack, “Abandoned Mines”, chosen for the VALSIMI project aimed at the valorisation of abandoned mining sites, approved in 2014 by the Abruzzo Region. Also in 2014 he was chosen to provide sound for the documentary ”L’ Antico Acquedotto delle Uccole” promoted by the Gole di San Venanzio Nature Reserve in Abruzzo, Italy. In 2020 he participated in the FMC – Film Music Contest, one of the most prestigious music composition competitions for images in the world, being the only Italian composer among the finalists for the music of “Kerama Blue”, an award-winning Japanese short film. He recently started a fruitful collaboration with Ballandi, a company specializing in cultural entertainment and documentary television productions. Some of his compositions were chosen to provide soundtracks for national television productions and are distributed by Rai Com. In 2022, in collaboration with Soundtrax, he worked on the creation of music for the Rai 3 television program “Fifth dimension – The future is already here” . Also in 2022 he collaborates with the director Sebastiano Bianco and with the Ballandi company on the creation of an important project which sees dancers, artists and musicians from all over the world as co-protagonists, who dialogued and danced in the splendid setting of the Gallerie d’museums Italy of Intesa Sanpaolo of Vicenza, Naples and Turin. Three videos dedicated to “talent”, “performance” and “courage and memory” that Roberto Bolle created with Paolo Fresu, Alessandro Quarta and Davide Dileo. In 2023 he wrote music for the program “History of our cities” broadcast on Rai Storia, for the second edition of the program “Fifth dimension – The future is already here”, for the documentary “The art of fashion” broadcast on Sky Art.
