Enrico Pieranunzi

The son of Renata Brillantini and Alvaro Pieranunzi, he completed classical piano studies at a very young age, graduating and becoming a teacher at the conservatory since 1973.

He was introduced to jazz because of his father’s passion for this musical genre, a jazz guitarist and follower of Django Reinhardt. The mixture, in his training, of classical piano and jazz, helps define his style and musical language, where the influences of Debussy’s music are evident.

Pieranunzi Began his jazz career in the mid-1970s.

Chet Baker, Art Farmer, Irio De Paula, Lee Konitz, Marc Johnson, Joey Baron, Paul Motian, Charlie Haden, Gabriele Mirabassi, Jim Hall, and participated in the most important Italian (Umbria Jazz, Ravenna, Milano Ciak) and international (Montréal, Copenhagen, Berlin, Madrid) festivals.
