Academy Award-winning composer and pianist Nicola Piovani’s transcendent live narrative runs through the highlights of his entire body of work in cinema, theatre, symphonic orchestra and song. In this intimate and exclusive event, the celebrated composer of more than 130 films reminisces, in music and in conversation, about his encounters with legendary film directors, songwriters and poets. He will be accompanied by a quintet of virtuoso musicians on keyboard, accordion, sax, clarinet, guitar, mandocello, drums and percussion.
