PIANO SONGS - New solo album (June 2020)
The cycle “Piano Songs” consists of seven compositions that David calls contemporary “Lieder ohne Worte” - “songs without words.” Energetic, dreamy, joyful or mysterious, they fascinate and captivate broad audiences with their very own language. Alongside these songs, the album also features more classical pieces like “Seven Waltzes” and “Piano Sonata No. 3”.

ODE TO THE HELPERS (April 2020)
A special work in progress for all the helpers
ODE TO THE HELPERS
World premiere of the first movement of David Ianni’s special string quartet “Ode to the Helpers”. This work honors everybody on the planet who helps us to overcome the COVID19 crisis. The composition has four solo movements for the four string instruments, each representing a quality of a good helper: “Focused“, “Calm“, “Loving“ and “Strong“. After the presentation of the solo pieces, these movements are played simultaneously in every possible combination (e.g. alto/cello, violon 1/violin 2/cello etc.) including the four musicians performing their piece at the same time to form the grand final movement of this “Ode to the Helpers”.
Performed live by Ilan Schneider, solo violist of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg, on 31th March 2020 in a streaming concert from his living room for the concert series “Live aus der Stuff“ by “Maskénada”, with the support of the Luxembourgish Ministry of Culture.
Ein besonderes Streichquartett für besondere Menschen in surrealen Zeiten: ein Dank an all jene, die uns helfen, diese Krise zu überwinden. „Ode to the Helpers“ besteht aus 4 eigenständigen Solo-Stücken für 4 Solo-Streichinstrumente. Die 4 Kompositionen können beliebig kombiniert – gleichzeitig – gespielt werden, ob 2, 3 oder alle 4 Instrumente zusammen, um so jedes Mal ein neues Stück zu bilden. Der erste Satz für Solo-Bratsche wurde von Ilan Schneider uraufgeführt.
