Stefano Bollani

Read "Stefano Bollani" reviewed by Celeste Sunderland

In December, 2007 Italian pianist Stefano Bollani got the chance to play in one of Rio de Janeiro's poorest places, the favela. For most, performing in such a dreary locale would not be so pleasant, but for Bollani it was extraordinary. “They never have concerts there," he explained. “It's the poorest place on Earth and there ...
