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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
