Andrea Liberovici (born 1962, Turin, Italy) is an Italian composer of contemporary classical music and a theater director.


The son of Sergio Liberovici (musician, Turin, 1930–1991) and Margot Galante Garrone, Andrea Liberovici studied composition, violin and viola at the conservatories of Venice and Turin. He also studied acting at the Scuola del Teatro Stabile in Genoa, and singing with Cathy Berberian at the International Festival in Montalcino in 1980. He recorded his first LP at the age of fifteen.[1][2]

As a composer and director, he co-founded Teatrodelsuono (theatre of sound) with poet Edoardo Sanguineti[3] (librettist of Luciano Berio) and Ottavia Fusco.

As quoted by Jean-Jacques Nattiez from his book, "Andrea Liberovici is a composer of his time. He define himself a modern.(...) We can find in his Frankenstein Cabaret a metaphor of the composer today. (...) he his a tragic musicians, a tragic-postmodern composer who tell about man and woman compared with the absurd and unbearable loneliness in which Internet borders more and more humanity."[4]

Over the last decade, in collaboration with artists such as Peter Greenaway,[5][6] Claudia Cardinale, Aldo Nove, Judith Malina,[7] Vittorio Gassman, Giorgio Albertazzi, Enrico Ghezzi, Ivry Gitlis and Regina Carter, Liberovici has created many projects concerning the relationships between music, poetry, theatre and technology.

Recently, those who have performed his music include Yuri Bashmet,[8][9] Nouvel Ensemble Moderne[10] (Montreal), Toscanini Orchestra, and Teatro Carlo Felice. His works have also been presented and produced by the Teatro di Roma, La Fenice (Venice) and Salle Olivier Messiaen (Paris). He has also worked in residence at INA-GRM and France Culture in Paris, STEIM Center for Research and Development in Amsterdam, and the GMEM[11] National Centre of Musical Creation in Marseille. His music and performances have been presented in Italy and in various cities, including New York, Paris, Athens and Montreal.[12]
