This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

The 22nd edition of Astimusica featured a solo piano concert by Stefano Bollani. More than a traditional piano concert, his "one man show" with no playlist was a tribute to the art of improvisation. Covering Bach to the Beatles, from Stravinsky to Brazilian rhythms, with sudden incursions into pop or in the Italian repertoire, it was a flow of musical consciousness, humor, and emotion. Keeping with the spirit of the concert, the audience requested the encore songs with Bollani presenting medleys that balanced virtuosity and irreverence.
