online >  Marco Ciampi – Solo Piano Recital

This is our first online concert, a recital by acclaimed classical pianist Marco Ciampi, who performed for us from his home in Italy.

In this time of social distancing, music feels more necessary than ever before. So many Italians, while locked down in quarantine, played music together on their balconies and felt connected with neighbors across Italy through improvised concerts. Music is capable to cross all borders and barriers and unite us even when we are distant.

Maestro Ciampi won over 30 national and international piano competitions and appeared as a soloist at venues like the Moscow International House of Music, the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Seymour Centre in Sydney, Teatro La Fenice in Venice and many more.

For this special performance, streamed on our Facebook page (available below), Maestro Ciampi presented a program featuring works by Rachmaninov, Morricone, Gershwin and Gulda, taking us on a journey of melodies inspiring us to stay engaged and connected to what is important.
