"El Chakracanta. Live in Buenos Aires" CD - Signed by Stefano Bollani
El Chakracanta, Stefano Bollani’s new dynamic live album with two original works of his for piano and orchestra and two tangos by Ástor Piazzolla and Horacio Salgán.
Bollani’s “Concerto Azzurro” (2017) and “Concerto Verde” (2019), each classically structured in four movements of distinct character of melody and rhythm, are informed by Bollani’s jazz genius, favouring moments that disobey the rules that demand that a pianist shall stick to the rigorously immutable score. “Concerto Azzurro” [Azure Concerto] was commissioned by Kristjan Järvi and the MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra. Azure is the colour of the fifth chakra, associated with self-expression and communication. “Concerto Verde” [Green Concerto] refers to the colour of the fourth chakra, associated with love. Both concertos were recorded live in Buenos Aires: “Azzurro” at Centro Cultural Kirchner on 17th June 2018; and “Verde”, next to Piazzolla’s “Libertango” and Salgán’s “Don Agustin Bardi”, at Teatro Coliseo on 19th June 2019. With Bollani (piano) and the Orquesta Sin Fin, directed by Exequiel Mantega.
The CD comes in an exquisite 6-side DigiSleeve with an 8-page booklet graphically designed by Italian artist Umberto Giovannini.
Among the various activities that we have planned for the biennium 2017/18, there is the Pet Therapy, for children and people with disabilities, but also for adults or older people who want to find an inner balance.
The therapeutic value of the relationship with animals friends is now recognized by the science. The Alchemist a no-profit Association of Social Promotion and Culture, believes that, especially cats and rodents can allow children and adults with difficulties temporary or chronic social relationship, to improve their quality of life and to be able to regain their inner balance, in order to better address the everyday life or health.
We are only at the beginning, in the most delicate phase: to raise funds through events, public auctions and more, in order to operate on the territory of Pescara. We very believe in this project and we also believe that the Pet Therapy should be accessible free of charge.
