Pasquale Stafano piano
“Roots” is not just the theme of pianist and composer Pasquale Stafano’s concert; it’s a captivating journey into the musical soul of an eclectic and refined artist, whose background has been shaped by countless immersive encounters with the worlds of jazz, classical, and South American music. However, what truly inspires his personal creative odyssey is the profound and penetrating influence of compositions by great authors and performers such as Astor Piazzolla, Egberto Gismonti, Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Esbjorn Svensson, to name just a few.
These influences, which have molded his style and musical sensibility, have provided the foundation upon which he has built his original compositions. In this way, his music is not merely a reinterpretation of what has come before, but an innovative fusion of tradition, creativity, and modernity. It is a tribute to his roots and a journey toward the ongoing evolution of his art, offering deep and engaging emotions to those who listen.
