Dino & Franco Piana Ensemble: Open Spaces

Read "Open Spaces" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Dopo aver esordito con Septet (AlfaMusic 2012) e confermato il suo valore nel successivo Seasons (AlfaMusic 2015), il medio organico di Franco e Dino Piana trova una nuova identità ampliando l'organico ai cinque archi della B.i.m. Orchestra. Le suggestioni cameristiche che impregnano qualche brano non mutano l'estetica di fondo ma al contrario esaltano ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
