Après la sortie de mon troisième album, Piano Ambulance, suivi d'une tournée UK, j'ai effectué dans le cadre d'Akkordeonale 2016 plus de 34 concerts en Allemagne.

J'ai fait des tournées au Royaume-Uni, en Italie, au Portugal, en France, en Belgique, en Allemagne et j'ai joué dans de nombreux festivals et dans des clubs de musique européens.

Je vis actuellement à Paris où j'ai commencé une intense activité de concert.


Actuellement avec le violoniste et compositeur Gabriel Bismut, il a créé un nouvel ensemble, le Gabriel Bismut & Maurizio Minardi Quartet, avec lequel il a enregistré un nouvel album, sous la direction artistique de Marc Berthoumieux.

Nous jouons principalement des compositions originales de mes derniers albums :
