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.
