Luciano Chessa’s Musical Inventions

Laura E. Ruberto (February 11, 2008)
Sardinia, San Francisco, the traditional, the avant-garde: everything finds a home in Luciano Chessa's music.

Luciano Chessa, a contemporary composer, pianist, and musicologist, has an offbeat approach to his compositions and performances, mixing the traditional and the avant-garde. Born in Sardinia, Chessa studied music in Bologna and later received a Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis. He now teaches at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
