(performing also at Melbourne Recital Centre on Feb 8 but almost sold out)
Three astounding musicians with a passion for musical adventure and surprise, performing the compositions of Frank Zappa.
Returning to Australia to present this special concert is Alessandra Garosi, an exceptional pianist of international standing based in Italy, from a classical background but with a passion for many styles of music. This is exemplified by her work with Harmonie Ensemble, who are known for their chamber ensemble versions of the music of Frank Zappa. Alessandra was one of the stand out performers at the 2014 Festival of Slow Music.
Adam Simmons has been collaborating with Alessandra for several years since they first met at Alternativa Festival (Prague 2010), with the release of their “Melting Pot” CD recorded in Tuscany (2013), and launched at the 2014 Festival of Slow Music.
Joining them will be master drummer, David Jones, who performed with Alessandra at Melbourne Recital Centre as part of Adam’s commissioned work for the Quiddity Project in 2014.
