“I do believe that classical music still has many things to say. Nowadays classical music is old-fashioned, it is often connected with something boring to listen to. However classical music, as all kinds of music in general, shows and expresses feelings: it can be either sad and gloomy or happy and playful. My music reflects my soul and my way to face the world. Music isn’t owned by anyone. The musician has to share it with everyone, cause I compose something that is included in a precise culture and society and in a particular historical period of time. I do really need to share my music with everyone.” Stefano Semprini
