Alessandro Loro

Instruments: Composers

Alessandro Loro (2001) is an Italian composer, sound designer and classical guitarist based in Dublin, Ireland. After completing his studies in classical guitar with M°. Eddy Serafini in Trento, Italy, he moved to Ireland to study music at Trinity College Dublin, where he specialized in composition with Evangelia Rigaki and Elis Czerniak. He was elected Foundation Scholar in Music in Trinity Term 2022 and was awarded the Taylor Entrance Exhibition Award by TCD’s Music Department in 2021.

His compositional style focuses on merging different musical influences, combining modern practices with traditional sonorities from several musical backgrounds and styles. His compositions have been performed in festivals in Italy and Ireland – recent commissions include the permanent installation The Ferdinando – Museum of Frontiers in Fort Bard (Italy, 2024), GuitaRIAM (2024), Fidelio Trio Winter Chamber Music Festival (Snapshots initiative, Ireland, 2023) and Sacred Music Festival (Italy, 2022).

In addition, Alessandro extensively works as a Film/TV composer. Recent works include the original soundtrack for Nero (Thriller TV series, Prime Video Italy, 2024), A Christmas Gift (short noir, Ireland, 2023), and Champions of Made in Italy (promotional campaign by Lega Serie A and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation). In 2023, the Cannes Soundtrack Award selected two of his pieces for high– sync potential.

As a guitarist, Alessandro holds two international performance awards — the National Performing Competition “Città Piove di Sacco” 2018 (III place, classical guitar duo), and the Best Students of Public and Private Schools Affiliated with the Vicenza Conservatory Award 2016 (III place, classical guitar quartet) – and has an extensive performance record around Italy and Ireland.
