Ludwig Korelli is the "nóme de guerre" of Charles A. Gazzari. Born in Buenos Aires (1942) from a family of Italian immigrants he took 5 years of piano lessons under Alma Melgar and 8 years under Vincenzo Scaramuzza. Efforts to become a concert pianist never panned out for various reasons.
Deeply intrigued about the music of J.S. Bach since earlier years Mr. Korelli began to improvise counterpoint at age 8 or 9 and write some polyphony at 14. In 1965 he moved to the United States.
In California he did much composing between the years 1969 and 1980. After that point all musical efforts were abandoned due to disenchantment arising at his inability to bring producers, performers or conductors to view the possibilities of New-Baroque composition.
Mr.Korelli has recently again taken up composition
