“Inner Reflection”, the new project piano solo of this Italian pianiste is an intense musical journey where Maurizio describes with passion and sensitive soul at times wild and dreamy ,what are the limits of human nature when compared with the elements of nature.
Maurizio Bignone is an italian pianist and composer, trasversal and crossover,he embraces different styles from the first compositions without neglecting experimentation but always with a common thread that unites his works and that is why he felt the necessity to develop a melodic line well defined, all within the basic common system that is part of contemporary classical music. His love for nature, its wonders and the sensations it generates is all at the basis of his music. With his music Maurizio whispers to people’s souls, and he establishes a special harmony with them that creates a sensation of emotional well-being. Maurizio is also considered one of the most interesting artists on the Italian contemporary scene. In 2019 he started a new tour with his new project “No Border” where Maurizio plays with the flutist Elena Kushchii (first flutist and soloist of the Opera Theater in Odessa – Ukraine) and the cellist Giorgio Gasbarro (first cello soloist at the Massimo Theatre in Palermo ).
