Quinsin Nachoff: Stars and Constellations

Read "Stars and Constellations" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Quinsin Nachoff è personaggio atipico nell'attuale panorama musicale. Attivo e apprezzato interprete di musica classica come di musica improvvisata, continua a operare con successo in entrambi i campi ma da anni,--attraverso lavori commissionati ad hoc, progetti multimediali che coinvolgono esperti di fisica, cineasti, orchestre da camera, quartetti d'archi --, sta portando avanti una personale visione delle possibili convivenze tra i due mondi musicali. Niente di nuovo, si dirà--senza scomodare ingombranti richiami alla Third Stream Music--sono numerosi i ...

Anna Webber: Idiom

Read "Idiom" reviewed by Stefano Merighi


Già da oltre un decennio, la complessità della canadese Anna Webber (sax tenore, flauto, composizione) ci interroga sulla possibilità di compenetrare nel jazz di oggi mente e corpo, attitudine concettuale e abbandono rituale.

Anna Webber: Idiom

Read "Idiom" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Is Idiom, from composer, saxophonist, and flutist Anna Webber, new classical music or jazz? Yes. Is the music scored or improvised? Again, yes. Last question: Is it demanding or easy on the ears? Both. On the heels of two stellar releases, the septet Clockwise (Pi Recordings, 2019) and the Webber/Morris Big Band recording Both Are True (Greenleaf Music, 2020), Webber was commissioned to present Idiom VI at John Zorn's Stone series. She expanded the material from one track heard on ...
