STEFANO BOLLANI – PIANO SOLO
SOLO is a term that can lead you astray. In concert, I’m always with my audience that convey something to me, my thought, the food I’ve just eaten, the sound of the stage, the monitor and the sound system prepared by Roberto Lioli, that for years joins my piano with the rest of the world. Thanks to him, I make myself as an instrument and I enjoy seeing what comes from improvising, as the sound that is created inside me and it’s channeled into my hands, it reaches the piano and then to the audience. I recorded three albums alone, Småt Småt, Piano Solo and the most recent Arrivano gli alieni. But I go up on the stage to play, without a predefined playlist, “what’s on my mind at the moment”, to quote George Bernard Shaw (but he never said it). It’s like building a bridge and at the same time passing over it. It is important to translate this present moment into sound, in order to touch directly every heart, without necessarily going through the judgment of your head.
And at least on the way this sound will entertain you like a breeze that blows images in motion, lights, colors … You manage the details of this emotional theatre that is personal, everyone on his own, I bring the breeze.
