Marini characterises his career with the performance in 2002, with 16 recitals, of the complete organ works of M. Reger, with the patronage of the Embassy of the Fed. Rep. of Germany, and of the Max Reger Institut and of the Italian Episcopal Conference. Thus, creating great interest in the Italian and international music panorama and achieving remarkable success from both musical critics and audience. Another significant moment of his career is the performance of the complete organ works of J.S. Bach (1996). Moreover, he devotes himself, with success, to improvisation. Born in Teramo (Italy), R.
