Stefano Bollani’s solo album PIANO VARIATIONS ON JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, entirely produced by Bollani, will be internationally released on 3rd April 2020, that is 50 years after Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice’s original concept album.
Bollani, grateful for the exceptional permission granted to him to re-interpret the cult opera, has freely but respectfully approached and improvised on the original songs by following his own playful wit, informed by the musical traditions, genres, styles and encounters that have influenced him and shaped what is considered his very own idiom. For his version of Jesus Christ Superstar Stefano Bollani wanted a warm, mellow, profound, dense and clear piano sound that could best vehicle the profound and archaic emotions and extreme unanswered questions raised by the original work. Hence the piano tuned at 432 Hz, which has allowed him to express the warmth and profundity of Lloyd Webber & Rice’s strong and round film characters.
