MARCO MARCONI TRIO AT FAZIOLI CONCERT HALL - Thursday 09 January, 2014 In November 2013, the Marco Marconi Trio headed to the Fazioli Concert Hall in Italy to record their first CD together for Candid Records following the success of their UK tour in October.
Working with highly acclaimed ICM sound engineer, Stefano Amerio, the Trio recorded 10 original compositions and arrangements by Marco.
For Marco, returning to Fazioli to play the incredible Fazioli F278 grand piano in the Concert Hall was a dream come true.
The CD is due to be released in the autumn of 2014.
