CONCERTO ITALIANO – The Italian Variations
Title: Concerto Italiano – The Italian Variations
Piano concert with transcriptions, impro & variations
Live set: Piano
Mario Mariani – piano
Running time: 1 hour
The Italian Variations is an amusing homage to italian music with a piano recital that embraces a vast repertoire spanning from the classical, popular and cinematographic tradition for which italian culture is known and appreciated throughout the world.
Mario Mariani creatively develops the prepared piano practice (by interacting with the most possibly different objects – from milk frothers to marbles to bells, etc.- directly used on the piano’s strings for expressing the instrument’s unlimited potential), enriching it with a theatrical and expressive manner, imagining the piano ad a multitude of instruments, like an orchestra.
