Michel Petrucciani

Vero nome:
Michel Petrucciani
Profilo:
French jazz pianist.

Born: 28 December 1962 in Orange, France.
Died: 6 January 1999 in New York City, New York, USA (aged 36).

Petrucciani is from an Italo-French family (his grandfather was from Naples, Italy), and was known as one of the best jazz pianists of his time. He achieved this despite having the genetic disease OI (Osteogenesis Imperfecta, aka Brittle Bone Disease), a condition that causes brittle bones and, in his case, short stature and near constant pain in his arms.

In 1994, he was granted the Order of the Légion d'honneur in Paris, for his contribution to jazz music. Petrucciani died from a pulmonary infection a week after his 36th birthday, and was interred in Le Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris – one tomb away from Frédéric Chopin.

Jazz musicians Alessandro Collina, Rodolfo Cervetto, Marc Peillon, and Fabrizio Bosso collaborated on an album dedicated to mostly his compositions, "Michel On Air" (2014).

Brother to Louis Petrucciani (bassists) and Philippe Petrucciani (guitarist). Son of Antoine Petrucciani (guitarist).

Petrucciani gave his first professional concert at the age of 13. At this point of his life, he was still quite fragile and had to be carried to and from the piano. His size meant that he required aids to reach the piano's pedals, but his hands were average in length. This had its advantages, however. At the beginning of his career, Petrucciani's manager would often smuggle him into hotel rooms in a suitcase in a bid to save money.

Petrucciani felt he needed to travel to Paris to begin his musical career, but he found it difficult to leave home. His father was protective, constantly concerned for his son’s wellbeing and reluctant to put him in any danger. Petrucciani’s drummer Aldo Romano said of Michel's father: “[He] was an idiot. He didn’t trust anybody. He wanted to keep Petrucciani as a partner, to play music with. He was very jealous. So I had to fight to take him to Paris, because his father didn’t want me to, because he wanted to keep him, like you would cage a monster.
