Stefano Bollani

Piano Variations on “Jesus Christ Superstar”

When he was 14 years old  Stefano Bollani saw the film Jesus Christ Superstar. He instantly fell in love with the music, the story, the atmosphere and the warmth of the strong characters – all round!  It didn’t take him long to learn the words of the songs, but he hardly dared play the music out of respect for the original however much he yearned to do it. So he created his own version, completely different from the original. He explained “I chose the solo piano because the love story was between the rock opera and me, and a love story becomes more beautiful if it remains intimate.”
Grateful for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s exceptional permission to re-interpret his cult masterpiece, Bollani improvised on the original motifs and songs, freely but respectfully, inspired by his own joyful musical spirit.  His background of numerous musical traditions and types and the many varied encounters that have influenced him, have forged and consolidated what has now become his own musical language.
