Aldo Clementi

Aldo Clementi (born May 25, 1925 in Catania, Italy) is an Italian composer.

He studied the piano, graduating in 1946. His studies in composition began in 1941, and his teachers included Alfredo Sangiorgi and Goffredo Petrassi. After receiving his diploma in 1954, he attended the Darmstadt summer courses from 1955 to 1972. Important influences during this period included meeting Bruno Maderna in 1956, and working at the electronic music studio of the Italian radio broadcaster RAI in Milan.

"Poesia de Rilke" (1946) was the first work of his to be performed (Vienna, 1947). Of more significance was the premiere of "Cantata" (1954), which was broadcast by Hamburg Radio in 1956. In 1959 he won second prize in the ISCM competition with "Episodi" (1958), and in 1963 he took first prize in the same competition, with "Sette scene da "Collage" "(1961).

He taught music theory at the University of Bologna from 1971 to 1992.
