Per this obituary, he is survived by his wife, Alejandra “Yaya” Sandi and sons Alex and Matteo Belardinelli, parents Carlo and Mina Belardinelli, brother Giancarlo and dog Toto.
Daniel Belardinelli, one-half of the composer duo Duomo, whose classical renditions of pop songs accompanied Netflix's Bridgerton, died at age 49.
An unexpected death occurred last month on April 26 for the classical musician. He is survived by his wife Alejandra "Yaya" Sandi, sons Alex and Matteo Belardinelli, parents Carlo and Mina Belardinelli, brother Giancarlo and dog Toto.
Belardinelli and Tenner reimagined pop songs through a classical perspective, resulting in stunning covers of Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next," Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy," and Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" that appeared in season one of Netflix's Bridgerton.
Luminate reports that the duo's work later appeared on Bridgerton Covers From The Netflix Original Series EP, which hit No. 1 in the Jan. 16, 2021-dated Classical Albums chart.
During an interview with Billboard in 2021 about the success of the Bridgerton soundtrack, Belardinelli said, "Not going to lie, I always love hearing my music on screen.
We have reached a new level of audience reach with this scene. The entire team is proud and humbled, as well as thankful to Taylor for composing such a beautiful melody.
I confess to skipping our scene in episode 6 because I just started watching the series. This is such a jam."
As he said, the sudden success is "a bit strange, to be honest, and humbling," but he added that if the covers help "to turn new audiences on to classical music or get more people interested in playing an instrument,
we will take our small share of this success and use it as an inspiration to continue releasing original music and classic covers."
To help with funeral expenses, the Belardinelli family created a GoFundMe page.
