'MA MORT' :
MARINO FORMENTI in RECITAL
'ONE TO ONE':
A RESIDENCY by
Various Locations in Los Angeles
"That Formenti makes everything he touches, whether new music or old, seem astonishing is well known in Los Angeles."
- Mark Swed (Los Angeles Times)
- Mark Swed (Los Angeles Times)
The pianist Marino Formenti has spent his entire life rethinking the concept of the piano recital. Especially in the past two decades, Formenti has devoted himself to projects that create new contexts for listeners to experience and contemplate the music he cares about.
Marino will be joining us in Los Angeles for a two-part residency: first, he will be debuting a new recital entitled 'MA MORT' on Monday, February 11 in Zipper Concert Hall. Second, he will be giving a series of sessions for a project he calls 'ONE TO ONE.'

ONE TO ONE:
Conceived of in this instance as a fundraiser for MEC in preparation for its 80th anniversary, "ONE TO ONE," is a project in which Marino meets privately with a single guest at a time for a period of roughly two hours in an attempt to "put music back to a space between people." These sessions are part conversation and part music, and seek to bring abstract sound (ranging from Henry Purcell to Beethoven to Wolfgang Rihm) to life in new ways to a listener. Each session is tailored individually to Marino's guest, therefore each session is completely unique.
This is an important project for MEC. As a fundraiser, it is a project that allows us to continue to realize our vision and enables organizational growth. One of these sessions can be purchased for yourself, for a loved one, or perhaps for a deserving young musician. This is the type of interaction that lasts a lifetime.
These private sessions will take place in special locations in Los Feliz, Park LaBrea and Laurel Canyon. The sessions are available from February 8-14, 2019 in the afternoons and evenings. Sessions are $1,000 ($900 of which is tax deductible).
