ABU DHABI, May 7th, 2013 (WAM)
Acclaimed Italian pianist and composer, Cesare Picco dazzled the audience in the capital with his astounding repertoire at last night's "Piano Calling" concert held at the Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi auditorium.
Held under the auspices of the Italian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, the 500-strong audience featured several dignitaries, including the Director General of ADEC, Dr. Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili, the Italian and American ambassadors, and representatives of the French Embassy.
The fans of classical music immensely enjoyed Picco's unique musical compositions and vibrant improvisations that validated his flair with the piano.The concert attendees witnessed Picco's remarkable technique of playing live improvisations that elevated the art of experimental piano renditions and reinforced its excellence on an international level. The evening's fusion of Eastern and Western themes and Picco's infectious rhythms until the end imparted a sense of liveliness and joy.
Prof. Eric Fouache, Vice-Chancellor of Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi said, "Tonight we experienced how music transcends borders and cultures through Picco's inventive and inspiring musical expressions. During the show, we all went on the same evocative and mesmerising journey. We are privileged to collaborate with the Italian Embassy and thank them, together with the rest of the sponsors, for this opportunity to host this exquisite concert. We hope the audience enjoyed this rare performance and we look forward to hosting similarly compelling performances that help establish Abu Dhabi as a stellar cultural hub in the region."
