Volante was born in Ciociaria (Italy) on 15 of May
1964, he was still a teenager when he started his music studies (saxophone)
showing from the very beginning a particular predisposition towards the music composition
and Jazz music. At the age of 19 he won the audition for the Italian National Army
Band stationed in Rome where he served for 10 years under the direction of Col.
Marino BARTOLONI. After this first professional experience, he performed
in the Grenadiers of Sardinia's Band (Rome) and the Shape International Band (the
official Nato Band) stationed in Mons (BELGIUM). In this last post, he covered for
three years the 1st Tenor Saxophone slot helping the Director, MSg Allen WITTIG,
in writing the original arrangements for the Big Band.
So far, in his long carrier, he has written more than 200 tunes for several
music formations. Starting from the Marching/Symphonic/Big Band's repertoire to
the Symphonic Orchestra and Decimini/Quintetti/Trii etc… His Band tunes are very
well appreciated most due to the modern style in which he writes. Furthermore, he
has composed many songs for several singers that commissioned them according to
their artistic skills. In this website it is possible to download free scores and
tunes to listen.
