Gentle Game Lullabies and pianist Andrea Vanzo present Gentle Gaming: Mario for Piano, a 4-track EP of peaceful piano covers of music from Nintendo's Mario Bros. series of video games.

The Mario Bros. series – with over 240 million units sold – appeared in the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful game series of all time.

Andrea Vanzo is a musician and film composer. Music has always been a catalyst for him: an expression of emotions and profound states of being especially in the fascinating world of cinema and theatre, where he finds his ideal artistic dimension.

He wrote the music for several theatral plays and award-winning short films, obtaining the “Best Soundtrack” award at the international shortfilm festival CortoLovere for “Shame and Glasses''. In 2016, he composed the jingle for the advertisement “E’ tutto un quiz” for National Italian TV (RAI Pubblicità Air) and thanks to his collaboration with the singer and actress Matilda De Angelis, a song they have composed has been included in the TV drama “Tutto può succedere” – Italian remake of “Parenthood” – on RAI 1.

In 2020, he wins the 1st prize at an international contest promoted by "Central European String Quartet" with "Wires" and he publishes the EP "Frames", which marks his debut as an artist in the contemporary classic music genre.
