ITA

Ivan Marini è nato nel 1976 a Bolzano e vive a Laives con la sua famiglia. Dopo la maturità scientifica si diploma in Sassofono e Strumentazione per banda presso il conservatorio di Trento. Consegue inoltre il diploma triennale in direzione di banda presso l'ISEB. Nel frattempo frequenta corsi, seminari e masterclasses di esecuzione (anche su altri strumenti), direzione, arrangiamento e composizione.

Sempre alla ricerca di nuove esperienze musicali, suona in gruppi di musica africana, di funky e rhythm 'n' blues, di musica contemporanea, in big bands e quartetti di sassofoni, in compagnie di musical, in orchestre di fiati; ha curato sonorizzazioni di readings poetici e film muti, registrando anche numerosi CD. E' stato sax soprano solo e primo sax alto della “European Union Youth Wind Orchestra”; ha partecipato a importanti festival e concorsi in Italia e all'estero, tra cui: “Certamen internacional” di Valencia (E), “World Music Contest” di Kerkrade (NL) in categoria Concerto, “Flicorno d'oro” a Riva del Garda (I), “Mid Europe” a Schladming (A), “Eolia” a Strasburgo (F).

Ha trascritto, strumentato e arrangiato numerosi lavori in vari stili, per proprie formazioni e su commissione. Come compositore ha un catalogo molto ridotto ma diversi brani eseguiti, pubblicati (anche da Scomegna e Ruh Verlag), segnalati e premiati in importanti concorsi.

Dopo oltre venti anni di insegnamento di diverse discipline nelle scuole musicali del Trentino e dell'Alto Adige, è oggi docente di ruolo di sassofono presso le scuole secondarie ad indirizzo musicale; dirige inoltre il corpo musicale “Mario Mascagni” di Bolzano.

DEU

Ivan Marini (Jahrgang 1976) ist in Bozen geboren und lebt mit seiner Familie in Leifers. Nach der wissenschaftlichen Oberschulreife studierte er Saxophon und Instrumentation für Blasorchester am trientner Konservatorium; Er erwarb auch ein dreijähriges Diplom in Blasorchesterdirektion beim Institut ISEB. Ständig bildet er sich weiter durch Masterclasses, Kurse und Seminare für verschiedene Blas-, Streich- und Schlaginstrumente, Dirigieren, Arrangement und Komposition.

Auf der ständigen Suche nach neuen musikalischen Erfahrungen, erlebt er eine facettenreiche Konzerttätigkeit, u.a. mit Gruppen afrikanischer Musik, Funky- und Rhythm ‘n’ Blues-Bands, Ensembles für neue Musik, Big Bands, Saxophonquartetten, Musical-Orchestern und Blasorchestern. Er begleitet Stummfilme und Poetry Readings, und ist auf mehreren CDs zu hören. Er war Solosopransax und 1. Altsax beim Europäischen Jugendblasorchester; nahm an wichtigen Festivals und Wettbewerben teil, u.a. “Certamen internacional” in Valencia (E), “World Music Contest” (Kerkrade - NL) in der Höchstkategorie, “Flicorno d'oro” in Riva del Garda (I), “Mid Europe” in Schladming (A), “Eolia” in Straßburg (F).

Er hat zahlreiche Werke in verschiedenen Stilrichtungen transkribiert, instrumentiert und arrangiert, häufig als Auftragswerke. Als Komponist ist er nur gelegentlich tätig: seine Werke werden trotzdem aufgeführt, verlegt (u.a. bei Scomegna und Ruh Verlag) und werden bei wichtigen Wettbewerben ausgezeichnet.

Mit über 20 Jahren Lehrerfahrung musikalischer Fächern in Südtirol und dem Trentino, ist er heutzutage Lehrkraft für Saxophon bei den öffentlichen Schulen; er ist auch als Dirigent der Musikkapelle “Mario Mascagni” in Bozen tätig.
