Album Notes
"Sweet and strong..a very nice combination..."

"it's a train of sensations and emotions that strikes you..."

"It has a jazz taste that becomes nearly new age. With a bit of pepper given by a POP sensibility that fits in a classical structure"

"It's very rare to find musicians who go beyond the technique...... often this dims the true sense of a song. Fabio Mancini instead succeeds to conjugate technique and groove"

"Your piano playing tells a lot though it does not have lyrics"

About the Artist...

With a piano style somewhere between Classical, Contemporary, Jazz and New Age, Fabio Mancini brings melody and heart back to instrumental music.

He comes from a background of polished piano and organ music (academic degrees for both the instruments), but grew up a typical 1980's teenager strongly under the influences of such progressive rock artists as ELP, Yes and Genesis and jazz artist such as Jimmy Smith, Chick Corea and Michel Camilo.

At the age of 18 he began his career as a classical musician, winning music competitions and performing concerts. From the age of 20, when he listened to Keith Emerson and Genesis, he developed a strong interest in progressive rock and electronic keyboards, in particular moog and hammond.

Fabio alternate classical music with progressive rock music, playing piano and organ as soloist and with classical orchestras, or performing gigs playing keyboards in the progressive band "The Watch" and "Emerson Lake and Palmer tribute band".

In 2003 Fabio released his first CD as classical musician, 'Organ Music Vol. 1', with baroque organ music by J.S. Bach, D. Buxtehude, J.G. Walther and N. Bruhns. He was the first musician that realized a CD with the incoming Hauptwerk technology.

In 2005 he published his first CD for solo piano, "The Solitaire Voyager", with original compositions somewhere between classical, new age, jazz and progressive rock.

Today, Fabio alternate his musical career as performer and composer teaching Music Editory in the University of Milan and collaborating with the Music Web Site Vivaldistudio.com.
