Stefano Di Battista

Stefano Di Battista is a saxophone virtuoso and a pillar of the European Jazz scene. Originally from Rome where he grew up, lulled by the records of Art Pepper and Cannonball Adderley, he moved to Paris where he quickly made his mark alongside drummer Aldo Romano, conductor Laurent Cugny and many others. For this concert event, Stefano Di Battista pays homage to the maestro Ennio Morricone. He spent time with him and even worked with him. The Italian saxophonist takes the composer’s themes and reinterprets them as jazz as if they were made of a magical substance, a unique and mysterious music that inexplicably nourishes the soul. It took an artist of Stefano Di Battista’s calibre to take on the challenge of a man with 500 film scores under his belt! Metti una sera a cena, Once Upon a Time in America and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly are among those that he has reinterpreted to glorious perfection.
