(Rome 1960) Is the author of a vast composition production characterized by the continuous research of an unpredictable sound path which meets and melts stylistically multifaceted experiences, alwais balancing a direct and open communication and the linguistic heritage of the historical avant-gardes.
De Rossi Re’s music is open to various and differentiated influences and experiences, ranging from jazz, to popular music, to early music, and to experimentalism. The result is a sort of musical theatre with a deep sense of (postmodernistic) irony.
His ability to assimilate various musical techniques and to carefully evaluate the expressive potentials inherent in all musical styles, from popular music to avantgarde, resulted in a highly original musical language, capable of a difficult syntesis between experimentation and communication.
Among his compositions we remind the works for the musical theatre Biancaneve, ovvero il perfido candore (chamber opera, libretto by the composer), L’ombra dentro la pietra (opera ballet Roma Europa Festival, choreography by Paola Rampone), 1996; Cesare Lombroso o il corpo come principio morale (azione musicale, libretto by Adriano Vianello), voice, actor, mime, saxophone, French horn, trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano, percussion, and tape, 2000; Rappresentatione soli, coro e orchestra written on commission from Fondazione Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
