The Story Of Baldassarre
Composer, musician and world-traveling musicologist, Carl Baldassarre, is following his lifelong musical passion by carving a unique path on the music scene. Friends describe Carl as a modern-day Renaissance Man because of his many talents. Whether it is music or business, Carl has spent his entire career bringing notes and people together with harmonious effect.
Known as a gifted guitarist and band leader, Carl has more than 40 years’ experience as a professional musician and recording artist. His progressive rock bank, Syzygy, which charted in Germany and built a solid base in the U.S., has received critical acclaim and professional praise for 30 years. Carl’s new band, eponymously named BALDASSARRE, can be heard on his upcoming release, Collinwood Yards. The album is an amalgam of classical music and rock music. The 14-track musical journey of real-life, emotional stories ranging from tragedy to triumph was recorded at both Abbey Road Studios (London) and Sweetwater Studios in the U.S.
Considered a polystylist, Carl is a composer-songwriter comfortable in any genre or medium. He has received recognition for many of his works including Flamenco, Celtic ballads, progressive rock and classical music. As a musicologist, Carl is a well-studied, well-traveled historian and aesthete which enables him to bring great meaning and context to not only his work, but also to his analysis of other great works of art, music and life in general. His immersive approach has few limits, whether it’s jumping velvet rope lines to play Beethoven’s or Mahler’s piano or standing on the conductor’s podium of the great music halls of Europe or even sneaking a quick repose on the birth bed of someone he’s studying, Carl leaves no stone unturned when it comes to research.
Buoyed by his unrelenting enthusiasm and armed with decades of incredible experience and repertoire, Carl is scaling the ladder of an international brand encompassing his music and inspirational story. Most importantly, Carl wants his journey and brand to encourage others to find their own personal passion and path.
