The great jazz on the stage of the Conservatory

The Cherubini Conservatory of Florence and Music Pool renew their collaboration with three exclusive events dedicated to jazz. Protagonists of talk shows in music and jam sessions Gianni Coscia, Gege Telesforo, Edmar Castaneda and Gabriele Mirabassi

Also this year the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory in Florence opens its doors to the Music Pool association. Three appointments are scheduled at the Sala del Buonumore Pietro Grossi, two of which for the review Salotto Jazz and one with Edmar Castaneda and Gabriele Mirabassi who will hold a free entry workshop before their concert.

Salotto Jazz, the musical talk show full of stories and notes realized for the first time last year, has the aim of creating an innovative and dynamic cultural space in which to make classical and jazz music interact, also involving the younger generations. In the program for this second edition two meetings to deepen the history of the accordion and the voice in the jazz context. Each event will feature an artist who is an expert in the field who will dialogue with the public and will perform live with the students of the Conservatory with pieces from the jazz repertoire.

Guest of the first event to be held on Thursday, March 7th at 9.00 pm, Gianni Coscia, maestro of the 1931 class accordion. Coscia has played with the greatest Italian and overseas musicians, performing music by Kurt Weill and Astor Piazzolla. He has participated in the recordings of artists such as De André, Giorgio Conte and Milva and loves revisiting traditional music in a jazzy way. From the meeting with Gianluigi Trovesi, as he voted for a "root jazz", in 1994 he was born an artistic association among the most original and enduring.

The protagonist of the second event will be GeGè Telesforo, which will discuss the theme of vocal improvisation on Monday, April 8th at 9 pm. Singer, percussionist, multi-instrumentalist, Producer and A & R of the label Groove Master Edition, but also journalist, entertainer, author and radio and television host, GeGè Telesforo has always been a versatile artist, and above all a refined vocalist, innovator of the "scat" technique to keep up with the sacred monsters of jazz.

Tickets for events are available on the Box Office and TicketOne circuit and at the entrance to the Conservatory on the evening of the event. Single place € 5 + dp, Reduced for students € 2 + dp

Between a lounge and the other, Music Pool is also a guest of the Conservatory on Thursday 14 March at 9.15 pm with a concert by Edmar Castaneda and Gabriele Mirabassi. The two virtuosos of the harp and the clarinet respectively will give birth to beautiful arabesques of notes, creating an energetic and engaging game between fun and religious fervor. A concert with enchanting music and moving lyricism supported by the skilful technique of the two musicians.

The Colombian Edmar Castaneda arrived in the United States in 1994, bringing a new voice to American and world jazz. He has revolutionized the public and critical view of an unusual instrument such as the harp through its virtuosity and its continuous creative vein. His latest CD, "Live in Montreal" follows four acclaimed albums as leaders and many formidable collaborations with the likes of John Scofield, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Marcus Miller and John Patitucci, Sting, The Yellowjackets, Paco De Lucia.

Gabriele Mirabassi is one of the greatest virtuosos of clarinet on an international level. His heterogeneous musical spirit has led him to collaborations ranging from jazz to Brazilian music, with names such as Richard Galliano, Stefano Battaglia, Luciano Biondini, Michel Godard, John Taylor, Steve Swallow, Enrico Pieranunzi, Roberto Gatto. In recent years he has also worked with Gianmaria Testa, Erri De Luca, Barbara Casini and David Riondino.

Castaneda and Mirabassi, before the exhibition, will hold a free workshop at 6.00 pm open to the participation of students and the public.
