Jazz Interpretations Of Popular Italian Songs on SACD!
Jazz reinterpretations of ten pieces representative of the Italian popular tradition.
Stefano Bollani began studying the piano at the age of six and started his professional career at the age of fifteen. After graduating from the Conservatory Luigi Cherubini in Florence in 1993 he began appearing in many of the world's most important concert venues. Bollani takes the stage to learn something every night and "because it is cheaper than paying a psychoanalyst." He's constantly searching stimulations everywhere, in all the music of the past but most of all he's exploring the present, the moment being, improvising alongside great artists like his noble mentor Enrico Rava, Richard Galliano, Bill Frisell, Paul Motian, Chick Corea, Hamilton de Holanda.
Music has no real boundaries for him. That's why he continues to seek out new collaborations, even in the classical field (performing and recording concertos for piano and orchestra by Poulenc, Ravel and Gershwin) or in pop music.
