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.
