He is a songwriter and pianist from Naples who won the 2007 Carosone Prize. Hengeller takes inspiration from Renato Carosone, Lelio Luttazzi, Gorni Kramer, Fred Buscaglione, and Vittorio De Sica, both in his songs and the reinterpretation of the great classics of the Italian songbook of the 30s-60s, with a particular focus on the Neapolitan repertoire. Swing and irony mix to produce an elegant, easy-going, and relaxing lightness during his concerts. He is a gentle entertainer who rests on a solid musical foundation.
Many special guests such as Enrico Rava and Stefano Bollani performed in his albums. Peppe Servillo and Enrico Gragnaniello appear in his latest album.
Flaviano De Luca from Il Manifesto says: “Pleasant and original… he flows between quotations and remakes, original songs and great classics, making the variety show repertoire super enjoyable”.
