Last Monday night I had a great concert at Auditorium San Fedele, Milan, for the Inner Spaces season and in co-production with Milano Musica Festival. I was commissioned an extended version with guitar and live electronics of six Bach's chorales transcribed by Gyorgy Kurtag. The result was a dreamy 35 minutes performance, with the essential aid of the Acusmonium amplification. I have to thank Antonio Pileggi, Giovanni Cospito and Filippo Berbenni; special gratitude goes to Andrea Bolzoni and Christian Tölle for the electronics. In the second part of the show, the weird and fascinating Mecanium Orchestra by Pierre Bastie...

I have to thank San Fedele Musica for sharing this beautiful video of my last performance at Auditorium San Fedele, Milan (April 10th) for Inner Spaces series. It's my personal interpretation of Arvo Pärt's "Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten". My gratitude goes to Antonio Pileggi, Tony Correnti, Giovanni Cospito and Stefano Sbarbaro.

Another news from the improvisation department. Here's a very nice review of the last Zauss cd, "Trittico-Immer-All Over", recorded in 2016 in Alvaneu  (Switzerland) and released by Fazzul Music, with Markus Stauss (saxophones, flute) and Giuseppe Olivini (percussion, theremin). Benno Hofer hosted us in his beautiful house in the Grigioni mountains and, accidentally, recorded every mess we played. From that almost-four-hours material we chose the songs for this double cd.

Read the review here.

Last June 18th I had the pleasure to take part to the annual Tribute to Claudio Rocchi organized by Antonello Cresti at Spazio Ligera in Milan. Five acts in one night: I was followed by Maurizio Marsico & Riccardo Sinigaglia, Tai-No Orchestra (Filippo Monico, Massimo Falascone, Roberto Masotti, Fabrizio Testa), Vincenzo Zitello and ODRZ (Massimo Mascheroni and Antonio Maione). Here you can see the video of my solo performance. Special thanks to Antonello and Massimo Mascheroni.
