A welcome return for this great piano talent from Rome. His broad palette covers influences from Schumann and Wagner presented with the dynamics of contemporary jazz. Subtle, tender music full of exciting and inventive melodies.
Opening the evening is the talented duo of Alan Benzie and Helena Kay. Benzie’s piano is luminously toned, atmospheric and often impressionistic. Kay’s saxophone is playful, stirring and creative. Together, their music bursts with imagination and excitement inspired by the history but driven by invention.
