Orazio Sciortino wins the Composer Award – Composer of the year at the International Classical Music Awards !

Pianist, conductor and composer, the Sicilian musician Orazio Sciortino combines a thorough knowledge of tradition with an open spirit, which is reflected in musical writing free of constraints, open to the suggestions of modernity, yet always strongly personal and recognisable: his catalogue, in short, reflects the ideal figure of a 21st century composer, whose talent transcends the ideological constraints of the past.
