MARIO MARIANI
THE ROSSINI VARIATIONS

Concert Hall, Palazzo de La Salle

Friday 22 March 2019

8pm

€10 Donation at the door

 Booking by email: management@mariomariani.com

Ouverture “La gazza ladra” / “L’italiana in Algeri”/ “Guglielmo Tell” Duetto buffo di due gatti / Figaro’s dream / Rossiniana / Tarantella Variations on la “Petite Messe Solennelle”

The Rossini Variations is an amusing homage to the genius of the great composer with a piano repertoire that spans from the most famous pieces to the “musicological” ones.

In addition to the piano transcriptions made by Mario Mariani, who coincidentally was born in Pesaro, the same city of Gioacchino Rossini,  there will be many variations and improvisations to highlight the sparkling spirit of Rossini, remembering him, in particular in the 150th anniversary of his death.

Mario Mariani creatively develops what he calls a ‘prepared piano’ practice, enriching it with a theatrical and expressive manner, imagining the piano as a multitude of instruments, as an orchestra.

More info on http://artsmalta.org/events/mario-mariani-concert 

The concert is being held in cooperation with the Italian Institute of Culture in Malta.
