“Nuova stella internazionale del pianoforte classico, Alice Di Piazza è l’attesa ospite del recital di musiche di Brahms, Schumann e Gubaidulina proposto stasera nel cortile dello Steri dal Festival Internazionale Palermo Classica.
Anche se da tempo vive in Svizzera per meglio assecondare percorsi artistici e professionali, Alice Di Piazza è nata a Palermo e suonare nella sua città è per lei motivo di grande emozione. « Il sacrificio più grande che la musica mi ha imposto – dice la pianista – è stato quello di vivere lontano dalla mia famiglia e dalla mia Sicilia, che ho lasciato a 17 anni per perfezionarmi alla Royal Academy of Music di Londra. Della mia terra ciò che più mi manca è la storia che ogni pietra racconta, la vastità e la sonorità del mare, gli odori e i colori della campagna».
