Andrea Viscardi is an Italian pianist and composer. He developed and refined his piano technique at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, the Royal Academy of Music in London, and the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milan. As a composer, Andrea wrote the music for the documentary Cue the Muse, which won the prestigious Canadian Leo Award and received a nomination for the Emmy Award in 2014.
We introduced him with the debut track “Deeper Lake”; now he has released the first EP called Phono which is out now via Klavier Ltd (new Japanese label founded by pianist Akira Kosemura). According to the press release, The five pieces of this EP are a journey into undiscovered lands, where everyone can find their true self and leave everyday concerns out of the equation. Andrea Viscardi’s sounds speak a universal language that is grasped instantly: the fireworks are in the refined and meditated way each note is arranged with the others, so that masterful art blends into the regularities of nature. The final result is that the soul of the listener flows with Andrea’s sounds, until their rhythm finds an inexorable consonance with the pace of the universe.
