The programme includes original pieces by the Italian musician and adaptations of compositions by Ennio Morricone


The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. This Saturday [12th] at 7:30 p.m the Auditorium welcomes a concert by the Gino Marcelli Trio. The programme will consist of original music by the Italian musician and Marcelli’s own arrangements of works by the renowned composer Ennio Morricone.

This jazz trio features, in addition to Gino Marcelli on the piano, the musicians Tomás López-Perea on the double bass and Sergio Díaz on the drums – both from the Canary Islands. Some of Marcelli's songs that will be played during the concert include The Garden of the Simple, Strange Blues, Angela, and Landscape. Likewise, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and Gabriel’s Oboe are examples of the Italian musician's versions of pieces by Ennio Morricone, which will also be played this Saturday.

Born in Sermoneta (Latina, Italy), Marcelli is an active composer, arranger, pianist, and producer. At the age of nine he began with music, studying under Professor Mariano de Falco. In 1983, he studied harmony with Maestro Gianfranco Sordi, owner of the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome.

His current career has taken him to the best stages in Europe, playing with artists such as Leonar Jonson (former member of Temptation), Gerardina Trova, Andrea Bocelli, Mango, Tricarico, Tony Scott, Simple Minds, Feitless, Trilok Gurt, etc. He also studied jazz piano under Franco D'Andrea and Rita Marcotulli. In 1989, he participated in the Umbria Jazz seminar, studying with pianist Neil Omstead, professor of the famous Berklee College of Music in Boston. In the same year, he moved to Milan and joined forces with Stefano Cerri (bass guitar and percussion) and Andy Surdi (drums and voice) to form the Cerri Gas Station Trio, which has performed at many Italian and European music festivals.
