Giovanni Ceccarelli – piano, clavietta, whistle
… a wonderful pianist, elegant, calm, minimalist, Giovanni Ceccarelli.
Giovanni Ceccarelli brings in this solo performance his own entire musical world: a rich and multi-colored palette of sounds, always searching for the essential in music through his refined piano touch and his lyricism on the clavietta.
Proposing a repertoire of mainly own compositions, the pianist’s repertoire features also some music by such great composers as Ennio Morricone, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Ivan Lins.
“In Music’s Hands”, a sheet music book containing piano scores and sheet music for voice and other instruments, will be published in the upcoming weeks by Da Vinci Publishing. His interpretations in solo have been released on his own albums “Météores”, “Mare Calmo”, “Eu Te Amo – The music of Tom Jobim”, and the upcoming tribute “More Morricone”. Album “Animantiga” features Giovanni’s solo homage to the late Roberta Alloisio.
The pianist and composer has performed as a soloist in Italy, France, and Switzerland, including solidarity events “Il Jazz Italiano per Amatrice” at Casa del Jazz in Rome, “Il Jazz Italiano per le Terre del Sisma”, “Jazz4Bergamo” online and numerous “Concerts for Syria”, festivals “Capalbio Libri” and “Pianofortissimo”, radio programs “Musiques du Monde” – RFI in France and “Invenzioni a Due Voci” – Radio RAI 3 in Italy. In 2020 he participated to the concert Ivan Lins/Tosca/Joe Barbieri/Giovanni Ceccarelli at Italian festival Moon in June. In June 2022 Giovanni played a solo concert for the Italian Republic Day at the Italian Embassy in Paris.
