COMPOSING


Together with the violin studies, Irene Malizia studied composition with many teachers and in many different schools and University in Italy and in Austria. After studying in Italy with Luca Salvadori (Conservatorio “L. Refice” di Frosinone) and with Andrea Portera (Scuola di Musica di Fiesole), she moved to Vienna where she graduated in bachelor and master studies of composition with Christian Minkowitsch (Private University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna) and in a postgraduate Study in Electroacoustic Composition with Karhleinz Essl (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna).

Her compositions range from contemporary music to electronic and electroacoustic music. Since several years she is also combining the music composition with educational purpose. She is involved in educational composition projects, trying to bring children and students closer to contemporary instrumental techniques, with the composition of concert pieces of progressive difficulty, such her latest Project “Colori e Multiforme“. Winner of various prizes and composition competitions, her compositions boast performances in Italy and Austria, her compositions have been performed in Italy and in Austria and also published by the Italian publishing house Sconfinarte and by the Austrian publishing house Doblinger.

She writes for various ensembles and is currently working on a project about “Theme and variations“, which sees arrangements of classical pieces combined with new original compositions for 4 violins.
