pianist, composer and producer
Based in Paris, he represents a new generation of pianists who work to create innovative forms of expression, blurring the boundaries between jazz, electronics and music for film into the emerging "crossover" style. Manzoni indeed leads his classic approach towards a dimension of interaction with an international flavour.
He has performed at theater such as Carnegie Hall in NYC, Saint Martin in the Fields (London), Auditorium Parco della Musica (Roma), Hong Kong Arts Center, Acropolium (Carthage), Theatre Municipal (Tunis), Blue Note (Milan) and festivals such as the ISEA2016 (Hong Kong), e- Luminate Festival in Cambridge (UK), Heineken Jamminʼ Festival, on television and on Italian and international radio broadcastings including RSI (Swiss public radio and TV broadcasting), France 2, France Inter, Europe 1 and many others.
“I didnʼt think there was anything new that you could do with Round Midnight, but he came up with a new approach!” - Lewis Porter, author of “John Coltrane: His life and music” (USA)
“Es sind dies weder abstrakte noch abgehobene Welten, im Gegenteil: Wer sich mit Manzoni auf die Reise begibt, entdeckt einen leicht zugänglichen, transparenten, melodischen Reichtum. Sensationell.” - Jazz’n’More (CH)
He is a dynamic artist, disruptive, with an energy and freshness of composition worthy of the great international musicians with whom he shares the search for comprehensive expression. A free spirit, versatile and acrobatic artist, always on the go. Manzoniʼs music has an international flavor. " – La Repubblica (IT)
