Danilo Mascetti performs regularly all over Europe.

Danilo Mascetti is an Italian pianist and fortepianist known for his intense performances and original programming, combining traditional repertoire with lesser-known piano works. Equally at home with classical piano and fortepiano, since his debut with Pomeriggi Musicali Orchestra in the prestigious Sala Verdi (Milan), Danilo performs regularly all over Europe. 

From 2014 he performed in China and Japan, debuted in London at Steinway Hall, in New York at Merkin Hall, Wallenstein Palace in Prague, Warsaw Philharmonic Chamber Hall, Conciliazione Auditorium in Rome, Russia, South Africa and Morocco. He joins Yolanda Maartens in the OFM Art Beat as he talks about his upcoming concert in Bloemfontein.

The Odeion School of Music Concert Series kicks off in Bloemfontein with a dive into the past, with The Diabelli Project – this programme recreates the editor Antonio Diabelli’s own biggest project, the publishing of several variations on his own Waltz that led Beethoven to compose his magnificent set of Variations Op. 120. 

The theme becomes here the very centre of the recital, and during the performance we meet several well-known composers in different stages of their life, from the young Liszt to the then very famous Hummel and Czerny, finishing with the masterwork of the late Beethoven.

Programme for 14 March 2024

Anton Diabelli (1781 – 1858): Vaterlandischer Kunstleverein, selected variations on the Diabelli waltz by various composers involved in the project (Schubert, Liszt, Moscheles, Hummel, Kalbrenner, Vorisek) and one or more newly composed variations.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 – 1827): 33 Variations on a Theme by Diabelli Op. 120
