About Humberto Olivieri


Humberto Olivieri is born in Caracas Venezuela. His first musical influences were Puccini (played to him when he was just a baby in a cradle)and subsequently, Lionel Ritchie and George Benson (who, at the age of 5 he began singing to while his dad would play the recordings and comp on the piano). He then studies piano privately with Professor Bruna Monestiroli, a student of Alfredo Casella. During 7 years of dedicated study, he also explores rock music, playing drums in a garage band, and film music which he devours and analyzes passionately. He then discovers jazz, abandons his classical music private studies and moves to New York where he is accepted at the City College of New York. After graduating in BFA Piano Performance, he revisits the world of film scoring and classical music, by engaging himself in freelance stints with independent film makers for whom he composes original music, and by cooperating with classical singers as an accompanist. In addition, he has worked as the Music Librarian of the Ensemble 212, led by conductor Yoon Yae Lee, and is the resident composer of Actors of The World, an acting company settled in London.
