Pierino e il lupo in Jazz
Have you ever wondered if Beethoven was born in New Orleans in the heyday of blues music? If Mozart had known Miles Davis? How would they write their music? Would they achieve the same fame as Jazzmen, Rock Stars or Bluesmen?
In this musical mental exercise, trying to give an answer to these questions, Igor Caiazza and Matteo Sarti eclectic musicians and composers, with their baggage in the field of classical music and at the same time great jazz experience propose a jazz reinterpretation of the themes most beautiful classical music by Mozart, Bach and Beethoven to then delve into the fairy tale "Peter and the Wolf" by Sergei Prokofiev.As with the original version, each character of the work is represented by a different instrument which in this case, however, since it is a Jazz Band rather than a symphony orchestra, the instruments, harmonies and rhythms that accompany the characters take on a completely different flavour. The structure, themes and tonality of the work remain unchanged, but the harmonies and rhythms become modern. Thus, ranging from Swing to Latin, from Rock to Ballad.
To shed light on the musical project, the presence of important names from the world jazz scene will shine, Fabrizio Bosso on trumpet, Nico Gori on clarinet, Alessandro Tedesco on trombone and Luca Bulgarelli on double bass.
The "Pierino and the Wolf in Jazz" project is a light but at the same time intellectual, comic but profound show, for children and adults, for Jazz and music enthusiasts.
