It is, in fact, the master Walter Attanasi, conductor of international reputation, and Danilo Rea, one of the most important pianists of the Italian jazz scene.

Their idea originates from a small feature: the verb "play" in almost any language means "play." From here, like a real game, each respecting the other's language has developed this program. A sort of playful dissertation on the possibility to verify what can be harmonious and fun the insertion of a "comment", an improvisation jazz within filogica careful reading of a classical repertoire, obviously with the devices "technical" acts in the operation.

To embellish the initiative is the collaboration of the prestigious Czech Virtuosi orchestra, in a spectacular setting as the Teatro Morlacchi, involved in a creative activity that unites artists of various nationalities in the pure play of music.
