Daniel Matrone

Daniel Matrone was born in Annaba (Bône, Algeria). A grandnephew of composer Giacinto Lavitrano (Ischia, 1875 - Bône, 1937), he showed a precocious vocation to continue family tradition by getting in touch with the world of music and arts at a very early age. His studies at Toulouse Conservatory were continued in Paris with Marie-Claire Alain (organ) and Yvonne Lefébure (piano), including composition and improvisation with great masters among whom Maurice Duruflé. In 1986 he was among the founders of Ekymose, an art gallery in Bordeaux where he gave public performances of many of his piano works; his partnership with musicians such as Meredith Monk and Roberto Benzi also belongs to this interplay with the world of art. His recordings have won prestigious awards (Choc du Monde de la Musique, Diapason d'or). Organist at the church of Saint-Louis-des-Français in Rome since September 1999, Daniel Matrone has been honoured as Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.
