Fabio Bertagnolli is a New York City based composer of concert music and music for film and multimedia. Born in a little town in Northern Italy, he completed his musical education earning an Italian Conservatory Diploma in classical piano. In 2010 Fabio moved to NYC and, after some time spent learning English and occasionally playing trombone in different groups, the vibrant atmosphere of the city inspired him to compose music. So he started studying composition at the Juilliard School of Music with Raymond Lustig and Jonathan Dawe. Despite Fabio having just started composing, he showed an innate talent that encouraged him to keep on studying composition. He recently graduated with a Master in Music Composition and Film Scoring from NYU, studying with brilliant composers including Ira Newborn and Mark Suozzo. His score for the short animation “Goodnight Boon” has been awarded with “Honorable Mention” at the 2017 NYU Film Scoring Competition. Fabio’s music ranges over different styles and genres, and it is infused with a great sensitivity connected to his native Italian culture.
