Enrico was born in Clusone (Italy) in 1991. Fascinated by the saxophone, Enrico starts playing at the early age of eight years old. His first interest was classical music, which eventually led him to study with saxophone player and educator Paolo Camponuovo and study at “Luca Marenzio” Conservatory of Brescia in 2007, where he graduates in Classical Performance in 2011.
Growing up Enrico was exposed to many music genres that he now combines in his original works and arrangements. While his teenage years were devoted to improving his knowledge of classical music, he also developed a keen interest for rock, fusion, funk, progressive and heavy metal. Bands and artists like Weather Report, Brecker Brothers, Dream Theater, Frank Zappa, and many others left an everlasting mark in Enrico’s musical tastes and artistic sensibilities.
In 2008 he was featured as Alto Saxophone soloist in the European Union Youth Orchestra in two concerts in Darmstadt (Germany) and Bursa (Turkey).
In 2011, during his last year of Conservatory, Enrico auditioned and was accepted to Berklee College Of Music. He starts attending Berklee in January 2012 and graduates in Jazz Composition in May 2014. In Boston he had the chance to study composition and arranging with Bob Pilkington (Dave Holland, Brecker Brothers, Jazz Composers Alliance), Ayn Inserto (George Garzone, Steve Lacy, Joe Lovano), Greg Hopkins (Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Rich) and Mitch Haupers (Stan Getz, Kenny Barron, Mick Goodrick).
