Stefano Battaglia

The first time (in 2004) I witnessed a concert of Stefano Battaglia I immediately was impressed.

A quartet featuring  Michele Rabbia (percussion), Giovanni Maier (bass) and Francesco Bearzatti (sax) was performing in the Tuscan Bagno Vignoni and the energy of the band and especially the saxophonist and the beautiful compositions by  pianist Battaglia remained indelibly in my memory.


A few years later Battaglia released a  CD on the famous ECM label. He is active both in jazz and classical music.

That I think is why my recognition of the approach of master pianist Keith Jarrett was unmistakable there.

The pictures below I made the famous Clusone festival.
