Biography

Award-winning composer, conductor, and pianist Michelino Bisceglia was born in Genk, Belgium to a family of Italian origin. He started to play the keyboard at the age of six. When he was 12-years-old, he began to train formally on classical piano, and after a few years he switched to modern piano.

Early on in his musical development, he was influenced by jazz musicians Bill Evans, Lennie Tristano, and Keith Jarrett. He was also inspired by the works of Mozart, Rachmaninov, and Stravinsky, which strongly influenced his compositional and orchestral instincts. After a few years of extensive self-study, he began to work as a pianist, composer, arranger, and conductor.

Michelino has composed the soundtracks for multiple feature films, working with such renowned orchestras as the Brussels Philharmonic and Limburgs Symfonisch Orkest. He was also the orchestrator, arranger, and conductor of the 3D-animation TV series “Symfollies”, which created 52 episodes that were broadcast worldwide. The success of this project resulted in a number of live shows with orchestra. For these shows, Michelino worked with several international orchestras, such as The Royal Flemish Philharmonic, The Japan Synfonia Orchestra, and Orquestra Nacional do Porto.
