Bernardo Sassetti Composition Award 2019 (Lisbon, Portugal)

The piano trio, one of the most common formations in Jazz, meets a string quartet, based in classical tradition.

We find a constant idiomatic dialogue: an unknown, flexible, “shapeable” world encounters a rather static one and evolves into a new, unique, exceptional dimension.

Rather than presenting a “Jazz meets Classic” project, it is about creating a common approach to music with two different, independent soundscapes.

Promising. (01/2021)

This album from Samuel Gapp is great […] and […] representative for a contemporary, new Portuguese Jazz, which I really appreciate.
