Phoenix Collective - Concert #3 'Heart & Soul' feat. Dr Garcia [QLD] on Guitar
Accomplished national and international performers, Dan Russell (violin) and Anthony Garcia (guitar) come together to perform rearranged and semi-improvised works, especially for this event. Dr Garcia (PhD in improvisation, UTas) brings understanding of music as a universal language and works as Artistic Director of Sounds Across Oceans. The audience will be mesmerized by virtuosic hybrids and tonal colour that combine to produce rhythmically driven soundscapes and dance-like passages. It also features works by BACH, PIAZZOLLA, BERGMÜLLER and PAGANINI.
For Phoenix Collective Director-Violinist, Dan Russell, “You can’t get more intimate than sharing a musician’s thoughts and expressions as they improvise. You react in the moment: no chance to go back and edit or rehearse again. It’s all your cards out on the table.”
Garcia highlights the importance of audience in the Heart and Soul program where “traditional arrangements, improvised vignettes and audience response will combine to generate a special kind of synergy”.
This third concert goes beyond recognized music norms to blur genre, cross culture, notate, semi-notate and un-notate music: Latin, Irish, Italian, Australian and German fusions are extended and, at one point, include an electric guitar and loop station. Experience the full colour palette and range of emotions the violin and guitar have to offer.
“...Russell achieves an exquisite translucence in his violin’s upper register...” - John Shand, Limelight Magazine.
“Anthony’s performance was full of surprises! Innovative patterns constantly challenging the listener, and the audience loved the dreamy nature of his music. His presence on stage oozes confidence” - Zoli Mauritz, AD, Music By The Sea Festival.
The 2018 recital series by Phoenix Collective offers a range of exciting music genres and ensembles: the charm of Mozart’s classical genius; the passion of Argentine tango legend Astor Piazzolla; the intense emotions of the late romantic; and the meditative calm of minimalist music.
Limited seating. Book early! Concert #1 ‘Charm & Tradition’ and Concert #2 ‘Excitement & Flair’ were sell-outs!
The concert is supported by the NSW Government.
