William Tatge

William Tatge, pianist and composer, was born of American parents in Umbria, Italy in 1978 and lived in Florence from 1988 to 2008. He has recently moved to New York City. He began studying piano and violin at the age of six and enrolled in the Music School of Fiesole. From 1990 to 2000 he studied piano with Gabriella Barsotti at the L. Cherubini Conservatory of Florence, placing great emphasis on the 20th century repertoire. He received his degree in 2000 summa cum laude. He began exploring improvisation and jazz during his years at the conservatory: from ’96 to ’99 he studied privately with Stefano Bollani and participated in seminars at the Siena Jazz workshops. In these same years his passion for contemporary music led him to undertake the study of composition with Rosario Mirigliano and Romano Pezzati at the same conservatory. From 2000 to 2004 he studied orchestration with Tiziano Manca and orchestral conducting with Piero Bellugi. He also attended workshops with Ivan Fedele and Helmut Lachenmann. In 2006 he received his second conservatory diploma in composition, again summa cum laude. He continued to work on jazz piano with Enrico Pieranunzi, Franco D’Andrea and Paolo Birro. He also participated as a soloist and with a trio in Stefano Battaglia’s seminars in Siena.
