»Piano Variations on Jesus Christ Superstar«

Jazz pianist, singer, presenter – but above all, entertainer: Stefano Bollani is a universal genius if ever there was one. He combines phenomenal technical ability with a sharp sense of humour and a stylistic versatility that is without equal. He is now having a go at Andrew Lloyd Webber's and Tim Rice's world-famous rock opera »Jesus Christ Superstar«. It has always been something of a (secret) guilty pleasure for him – until now! But, of course, we cannot expect a straight run-through – Bollani uses the well-known hits as a basis for his own improvisations, consciously limiting himself to the piano: »I'm playing solo because this is a love affair between myself and Webber's and Rice's rock opera. And affairs are always better when they remain intimate.«
