Stefano Paparozzi was born in Rome in 1986.
He graduated in Composition at Conservatorio Ottorino Respighi in Latina, and attended short and long masterclasses with Ivan Fedele, Beat Furrer, Luis Bacalov, and others. His works have been performed in various festivals and concerts.
He took a break from composing for some years, during which he wrote several short stories and a novel.
While continuing to work as a translator, he went back writing music in 2018. His new works have been selected by calls for scores (Red Note Noisy Nights in Glasgow, Tage Neuer Musik 2020 in Regensburg), and his piece Tenuto, for Harpsichord and Piano, was premiered by Ere Lievonen and Anne Veinberg in Amsterdam and won the 1st Prize at the Prix Annelie de Man.
