Menorca's Marco Mezquida is something of a magician at the piano. The 28-year-old's talent has seduced audiences, critics and colleagues, and has made him one of the most-sought-after, valued and prolific artists in the Catalonia. He's been awarded Musician of the Year three times by the Association of Jazz Musicians of Catalonia, and his piano concerts are where Mezquida flies highest and freest and his public flies along with him, whether you're a piano aficionado or go along with no preconceived notions of what you'll see: it's a spiritual journey, an aesthetic storm. Mezquida is a versatile composer and improviser, and his piano work is sophisticated, intense and brilliant with a personal and contemporary language. There's not a big enough category to define such an explosive and intimate musician, with influences that span the history of music, including jazz, romantic, impressionistic, song and the vanguard, free improvisation, rock and flamenco.
