Alessandra Celletti studied piano at the Santa Cecilia Music Conservatory in Rome. After graduating she continued her studies with Vera Gobbi Belcredi, specializing in French piano works of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
In 1994 she released Les sons et les parfums, an album of pieces by Debussy, Ravel and Satie. Since then she has followed an irregular artistic path, characterized by sudden departures from classical music. Her second album, Viaggio a Praga, an exploration of the work of Bohemian composers, saw Alessandra awarded a scholarship by the Czech Republic in 1997.
On returning to Italy she began working with Kha Records, releasing four albums dedicated, respectively, to the music of Gurdjieff/De Hartmann, Erik Satie, Scott Joplin and Philip Glass. Her collection Esotérik Satie proved hugely popular in France , and Gnossienne #1 was used by Guy Ritchie in his 2005 movie Revolver.
As a performer, Alessandra Celletti’s repertoire ranges from classical music to contemporary, with the works of the XX Century canon and Minimalism holding a special place in her heart.
