Travelling from Baroque to Jazz

MMA exterior

Overview

BRIDGES

Using jazz as a vehicle, jazz guitarist and composer Tilemachos Moussas, vocalist Nassia Gofa, and musical saw soloist Nikos Giousef take us back to the music of the Renaissance and the Baroque. The basso continuo of Claudio Monteverdi, Henry Purcell, John Dowland, and Giovanni Battista Pergolesi is turned into walking bass, the musical saw and the theremin replace the soprano, and improvisation comes to the forefront. A subversive performance by young musicians who stood out at the auditions inaugurated last year by the ‘Open Platforms’ of the Bridges Cycle.
