Angela Montemurro, born in Bari, studied piano with Michele Marvulli and composition with Armando Renzi and Giovanni Misasi at the Piccinni Conservatory, in the years in which it was directed by Nino Rota, from whom she received affectionate lessons in both piano, composition and choir direction. She specialized in piano with Fausto Zadra in Rome and Sorrento, with Guido Agosti in Rome and with Carlo Zecchi at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.

Since 1973 she has been a piano teacher at the Bari Conservatory, where she has formed a piano school which has seen the success of a large group of concert performers and established teachers at a national and international level. She counts among his students Alessio Bax, winner of the Leeds International Competition in the 2000 edition. She holds advanced piano and chamber music courses at academies and musical associations, always following her own personal educational path on learning, of the solo repertoire, on memorization and visualization, on relaxation and training techniques applied to performance. She has been active as a composer since 1980; she is the author of compositions (also performed in important festivals and exhibitions in Italy and abroad) for piano, piano duo, harpsichord, wind ensembles, string orchestra, symphony orchestra, choir and orchestra, as well as incidental music for theatrical works, and transcriptions and elaborations by classical, romantic and modern authors, for various types of orchestral ensembles, from the string orchestra to the large symphony orchestra. The critic Sbisà wrote of her: "one of the few Apulian composers with a positive fervor of activity and in any case we believe, the only woman engaged in this sense in our region..." also performed in important festivals and exhibitions in Italy and abroad, for piano, piano duo, harpsichord, voice and piano, wind ensembles, string orchestra, symphony orchestra, choir and orchestra, and of countless transcriptions by classical and romantic authors.
