Maria Raduto: PianoBox – The Five Elements

Through well-known and rarely played piano works in search of emotion in the music, Maria Raduto engages the audience in her interactive format PianoBox and transforms the evening into an experience through charm, sensitivity and multifacetedness.

“My new PianoBox focuses on five elements that make music tangible. Freedom to improvise, striking pauses, melody or harmony, power and a wide range of colors make up the five elements to jump between styles and eras in the usual way, from the conviction that emotion does not lie in language or origin.” Musically, but in depth.”

Maria Raduto, known for her boldly designed albums and multidisciplinary projects, finds in her piano box the most flexible framework for conveying in a passionate way the piano literature that inspires her. For listeners, the connection between theme and program becomes clear through the stories about the music that Raduto freely tells between acts.

Her album “PHOENIX” achieved half a million streams and three nominations for the Opus Klassik Award. Her previous album “INSOMNIA” was released on Decca Records accompanied by music videos and reviewed as a “first-class listening experience” (“Die Presse”). The latter album includes Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto and Jolivet’s Concertino with RSO Vienna, Dirk Kaftan and Selena Ott.

Her solo career has taken her to Europe, Asia and the USA in concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Prince Mahidol Hall in Bangkok, the Great Hall of the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Vienna State Opera, the Gavo Hall in Paris, the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid and the Radio Sala in Bucharest. , the Smith Center in Las Vegas, and the National Concert Hall in Taipei. She has played as a soloist with the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Vienna State Opera Orchestra, Zagreb Philharmonic, Santa Cecilia Classica Orchestra, Cottbus Philharmonic Orchestra, California Symphony Orchestra and Las Vegas Philharmonic, among others. “In Blue – Gershwin Tales” with the Krzysztof Czech Jazz Orchestra project combines classical and jazz in a modern sonic language.
