"A duo piano/bass is not just a drumsless  trio but another way to approach improvised jazz. There is a different sound and conception in it."

 

In 2014 the duo did their first concert series in the Netherlands. In 2015 they performed in the Netherlands again with the Italian clarinet virtuoso Gabriele Mirabassi - the music of Pieranunzi's albums "Racconti Mediterranei" and "New Mediterranean Tales". The concerts were acclaimed highly by the Dutch media and the audience.
