Piano concert with transcriptions, impro & variations from the music of Frank Zappa

Live set: Piano

Mario Mariani – piano

Running time: 1 hour

ZAP-PIANO concert is dedicated to the great genius of Frank Zappa with original transcription, variations and storytelling.

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.
