(VELINO) Roma, 23 Jun - Pianist William Tatge will perform in a concert from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, 28 June, at the Italian Cultural Institute in New York. The musician, who performs jazz, classical music and improvisations, will be accompanied by Pablo Menares at the double bass and Nick Anderson at the drums. Born in Umbria from American parents, Tatge lived in Todi and Florence until he moved to New York in 2008.

The production is a world premiere performed recorded live at Berlin's Haus der Kulturen der Welt at the documentary Forum 2. The film was then screened in many prestigious museums and festivals throughout Europe and the United States and received positive reviews by the New York Times. In 2014, Tatge recorded the album Borderlands with the Last Call quartet together with Stefano Tamborrino, Francesco Ponticelli and Dan Kinzelman. The album was released in March 2015 under the label of Auditorium Parco della Musica. He is now working on a new album in a trio with Pablo Menares and Nick Anderson.
