Born in Torino in 1967, Alfredo Franco experiences several non-classical musical contexts in his youth before studying classical guitar; he subsequently deepens his musical competences in the historical and critical fields at the Dams faculty of the Universtiy of Turin (Department for Art, Music and Theatre). The choice to abandon the concert activity leads to the decision to study composition, which has been his primary commitment in the recent years and gets concrete in the writing of a series of guitar works performed and recorded by valuable interpreters (Cristiano Porqueddu, Alberto Mesirca, Duo Giulio Tampalini and Joanna Klisowska, Marcello Rivelli, Ermanno Brignolo, Leonardo de Marchi, Sergio Sorrentino, Duo Giri, Duo Scarlatti, Giacomo Palazzesi) and released on CD (Cahier des chansons anciennes nn. 1 e 2, Marcello Rivelli, Ermanno Brignolo – dotguitar; Music from a parallel world vol. 4, Sergio Sorrentino - Map).
Soundboard (vol. 45 no. 4)
... an expressive and imaginative fantasy that allows the fluid flow of dialogue between both instruments. ... Like all other Ut Orpheus publications, this one is also highlighted by an extremely clear and transparent notation ... I freely recommend this chamber composition to all interested players. (Uroš Dojčinović)
Tempo flûte n. 20 (second semestre 2019)
... cette œuvre ... aux fréquents changements de mesures binaires ou asymétriques, que l’on retiendra par la rare évocation de Sibelius qu’elle représente et pour son esprit vif et fin. (Pascal Gresset)
