Stephanie Trick & Paolo Alderighi - The return of Classic Jazz in Four Hands - Two UK concerts
Wednesday, May 30th
Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi return to the UK,
flying in especially for these two London May 2018 concerts.
After opening the EFG London Jazz Festival to sensational acclaim in 2016, they returned in 2017 to star in the Steinway two-pianos festival with UK audiences clamouring for more of the stylish variety, collective dexterity and imaginative performances of a wide range of boogie and blues; of stride and swing.
Stephanie, from St Louis Missouri and Paolo from Milan, Italy, met at a piano festival in 2008 and started to work together in 2011 on a four-hands piano project dedicated to classic jazz, preparing arrangements of songs from the swing era, as well as drawing from the ragtime and blues repertoire.
The convention of four hands is a fairly rare occurrence in improvised jazz and Stephanie and Paolo have enjoyed rave reviews and enormous international success with their concerts.
For their first concert on Wednesday May 30th it’s an evening of Rag-Time, Blues-time, Boogie-Time featuring the timeless music of the all time great musicians, Scott Joplin, James P. Johnson, Albert Ammons, Meade Lux Lewis, Fats Waller & Jelly Roll Morton.
For their second concert - featuring their new album - on the following Thursday May 31st it’s an evening of Broadway & More in Stride and Swing with the music and styles of Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Duke Ellington, Jerome Kern, George Gershwin and even Lennon & McCartney.
And across both concerts, Stephanie and Paolo bring their own unique interpretations and imaginative creativity with four hands.
