Albanese to perform “Blue Hour” in Shiraz  

December 4, 2018

TEHRAN – Italian pianist Federico Albanese will repeat his concert “Blue Hour” at Hafez Hall in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz on December 9, the organizers announced on Tuesday.

He is already scheduled to perform the concert at Tehran’s Andisheh Hall this Friday.

Pieces from his 2016 album “The Blue Hour”, which features crisp, very dynamic and complexly arranged compositions, will be performed during the concerts.

Albanese is famous for minimalistic piano melodies, string arrangements and electronica.

The performances have been organized by the executives of Rooberoo Mansion to celebrate the anniversary of the Tehran-based cultural center.

The concerts are the second leg of the Resonance Project launched by Rooberoo Mansion in 2017 to invite prominent musicians from across the world to perform in Iran.

The first part of the project was carried out by Icelandic pianist Olafur Arnalds in December 2017.
