Pianist Stefano Guaresi: ” From Mantova to Madison, Music in the Sister Cities” Call: (608) 262-3907 Web: www.union.wisc.edu/WUD/performingarts-about.htm Gueresi is an accomplished composer and pianist, having performed in dozens of cities in 14 different countries. At the age of 15, he won an interregional competition for emerging artists, organized by radio stations in northern Italy. After studying with the concert pianist Elizabeth Muller Vivanti and the composer John Paynter, Gueresi was the keyboardist for the band “Supergruppo,” and his single, “Never Fall in Love” was in the top ten charts in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in 1983. His music, which he describes as “evocative of distant and fantastic times and places,” is rooted in the classical tradition, but also in the pop romantic-symphonic sounds of the seventies. His work was featured in fashion shows, ballets, concerts, and soundtracks. “The Gates of Twilight” inspired by the French poet Arthur Rimabud, was donated Rimbaud’s birth city, Charleville-Meziers. Gueresi is a member of the board of representatives for the Lucio Campiani Conservatory in Mantua. Friday January 25, 7:30 pm at Farley’s House of Pianos, 6522 Seybold Road, Madison.
