The Sunday appointment continues in the large and welcoming foyer of the TAM Teatro Arcimboldi Milano with Live in The Lobby. The public will be able to taste a delicious aperitif at the theater bar, letting themselves be fascinated by the notes of the Italian Philharmonic Orchestra. Sunday 19 September “Live in The Lobby” will host an exceptional artist such as Enrico Pieranunzi.
The “Blues on Bach” concert starts from a project by the composer and arranger Michele Corcella and involves Enrico Pieranunzi, who is not only one of the greatest pianists of our jazz, but who by history and vocation is perhaps the only one capable of re-reading John Lewis's legacy in a personal way, which requires skills in different languages, sensitivity and openness. .
Pianist, composer, arranger Pieranunzi is one of the best known and most appreciated protagonists of the international jazz scene. He has recorded more than 80 CDs under his name ranging from solo piano to quintet and collaborating, in concert or in the recording studio, with Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Paul Motian, Charlie Haden, Chris Potter, Marc Johnson, Joey Baron. As well as on the stages of the main European countries, he has performed in South America, Japan and numerous times in the United States. Among the numerous awards for his musical activity, the three affirmations (1989, 2003, 2008) as best Italian musician in the annual “Top Jazz” referendum of the magazine “Musica Jazz”, the French “Django d'Or” (1997) as best European musician, the Echo Award 2014 in Germany as “Best International Piano Player” and the “A life for jazz” award awarded to him again in 2014 by the Musica Jazz magazine.
