Discovery: Federico Ferrandina

The name Federico Ferrandina might be new to you – as it is to us – but it’s quite possible you’ve heard his music before. His pieces have featured on the soundtracks of major movies and TV shows, including the Oscar-winning Dallas Buyers Club.

His latest track, Meridiano Prossimo, is the love theme for the Netflix movie The Last Paradiso. It is infused with the romantic, with playful flirting between light piano melodies and swelling strings. It would fit well on a playlist for a Valentine’s night in.

Born into a family of classical musicians, it’s hardly surprising Federico became a composer and songwriter. He’s certainly got a knack for it. Check out Meridiano Prossimo below.
