AmiciMusic is a chamber music organization based in Asheville, NC and Baltimore, MD, dedicated to performing the highest quality chamber music in intimate venues and non-traditional spaces. We are committed to breaking down barriers between performers and audiences by setting up a more relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts and through informative talks about each composer’s life before each piece is played.
Great duets for vibraphone and piano plus selections from Claude Bolling's Second Suite for Flute, Jazz Piano, Drums, and Bass
August 3-5, 2018
This will be a very unique program of fantastic crossover music uniting the worlds of Classical and Jazz. Special guest Jason DeCristofaro will do double duty on vibraphone and percussion. On the first half, we will perform some rarely heard duos for vibraphone and piano including an original composition by DeCristofaro himself. For the second half, flutist Lea Kibler and bassist Craig Sandberg will join to perform several movements from the phenomenal Second Suite for Flute, Jazz Piano, Drums, and Bass by the wonderful French jazz pianist and composer, Claude Bolling. Bolling was one of the first to experiment in the fusion of these two musical idioms and produced a string of great crossover albums with Jean-Pierre Rampal, Yo-Yo Ma, Pinchas Zuckerman, and more in the 1970’s and 1980’s. His music is still fresh and innovative today—true chamber music, but with a jazz flair! You won’t want to miss this show.
