Maestro Natalia Preziosi lives in Milan (Italy)
Natalia Preziosi, born in Russia, began studying the piano at the age of seven in Hungary. She began writing music at the age of twelve, creating her first composition called "Polka-joke" for the piano.
She graduated from the Belarusian State University of Arts and Culture in the city of Minsk in orchestral conducting. She studied composition and orchestral conducting under the guidance of the famous composer, organist and conductor of Moscow, national honourable artist of the Russian Federation Oleg Jancenko.
Natalia has worked as a conductor performing numerous concerts and tours in Russia, Belarus, the Ukraine and Poland. But she debuted to the general public with her own music at the age of twenty-five in the "national" theaters of Brest and Minsk with the drama "All about Monica" directed by A.Dolnikov and with the funny opera based on the famous comedy by Oscar Wilde "The importance of being Earnest" directed by E. Milovanov.
Since 1993 she lives in Italy with her family. And it is where she studied the aesthetics of composition at the Turin conservatory with the first Italian musicologist Enzo Restagno. Natalia had the fortunate opportunity to merge the great Russian musical culture with the centuries-old Italian musical tradition together with deepening her musical knowledge of lyrical and symphonic works. From this study of both Russian and Italian works she managed to give rise to a new compositional style that mixes the best of the two cultures and thanks to which she managed to compose innovative symphonic works, for chamber and ballet, such as:
