Renato Carosone was an Italian singer-songwriter, pianist and composer, best known above all during the ‘50s and ‘60s. Everybody knows songs such as “Tu vuo’ fa l’americano” or “O’ Sarracino”, that are undisputed masterpieces by an artist who gave much more brilliance to a really beautiful city like Naples.
Carosone’s love of music is something deep-rooted. I have no memories of him without a piano; every picture shoots him in some incredible piece of extraordinary music. When he was 75 years old, his performance in “Pianofortissimo” is engraved in my heart: the trend of that music after about 50 years from the composition of the piece, the ability and the passion of a 75 years old “grandpa” playing the piano and passing on to public boundless emotions, I think will leave youspeechless as well:
I think there’s no more to say, a master I hope somebody will remember playing this piece.
