The Bagatelle Mediterranee Duo (feat. Paolino Dalla Porta on acoustic bass) was established in 1997. Since then, they have been composing and performing original compositions which represent a personal synthesis of jazz as well as European and Mediterranean musical traditions. The result is a captivating example of "chamber jazz" rich in energy, musical poetry and expressiveness and supported by a refined technique.

Rizzoli Music Aperitivo is sponsored by Mionetto Prosecco and curated by Mondo Jazz, the weekly Radio Free Brooklyn show dedicated to international jazz.

Howard Fishman (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Russell Farhang (violin) play music that combines opposites: dark and light, celebration and introspection, love and heartbreak, elegance and roughness.
Together, they explore a repertoire that has its roots in classic American song, jazz, country, blues, swing, and gospel, all filtered through a lens open to non-idiomatic experimentation.
As one half of the Howard Fishman Quartet, the pair has been making music together for twenty years. They have toured the US and Europe, barnstorming in small clubs and headlining on prestigious stages.
The New York Times has written that the group's music "transcends time and idiom," citing Fishman as a "charismatic rhythm guitarist and an endearingly low-key singer" and Farhang's violin playing as having "gorgeous, finely shaped cadenzas executed with perfect intonation, twirling pirouettes and subtly bent notes...and a fluent sense of melodic invention."
The pair has only recently begun performing in intimate duo-format, wowing audiences in New York and London with their unique style and chemistry.

A very rare NYC pop-up concert by the in-demand Ahn Trio marks the end of the first year of the Rizzoli Music Aperitivo.  

Hailed as "exacting and exciting musicians" by the LA Times, the Ahn Trio is made up of three Juilliard-trained Korean-American sisters, pianist Lucia, violinist Angella, and cellist Maria. The Trio has released 9 critically acclaimed albums on EMI Classics, Sony, and Warner. Their ever-evolving vision of being a 21st century musician, and wideranging collaborations with modern dance companies including a B-boy dance company, film directors, rock bands, DJs, singers, and more led to the nickname "Classical revolutionaries" given to them by New York Newsday. Pat Methenyand other luminary composers such as Michael NymanMaurice JarreKenji BunchMark BaechleMark O'ConnorDJ SpookyChiel Meijering - among others - have written music for them.
In 2011 President Obama invited Ahn Trio to perform at the White House. The Ahns have performed at the prestigious TED conference and was the only classical group to be invited to perform at iTunes Festival 2008 in London. Ahn Trio's album Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac released by Sony, was No. 8 in the Billboard Charts for 26 weeks. Their Dvorak, Suk, and Shostakovich album on EMI won Germany's prestigious ECHO Award. People Magazine selected the sisters three of 50 Most Beautiful People in 2003. Their unique approach to music has taken the sisters to Buenos Aires' Teatro Colon, Vienna's Musikverein, New York's Lincoln Center, Leipzig's Gewandhaus, Beijing's Concert Hall, Istanbul's Aya Irini in Topkapi Palace, to over 30 countries and every state in America. Ahn Trio released their latest album BLUE in 2017 showcasing their wide-ranging interests and influences.

Jane Ira Bloom
 
Wild Lines: Improvising Emily Dickinson
 
Live at Rizzoli Bookstore, NYC

Friday 9 November 2018 - 6pm

1133 Broadway (btw 25th and 26th st.)

Jane Ira Bloom   soprano sax

Dawn Clement   keyboard

Mark Helias   bass

Deborah Rush   spoken word

 
 
 
21st-century soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom reimagines the poetry of 19th-century visionary Emily Dickinson.


Award winning soprano saxophonist/composer Jane Ira Bloom presents “Wild Lines,” her project for jazz quartet and spoken word, inspired by the poetry of Emily Dickinson, which is featured on her latest album "Wild Lines: Improvising Emily Dickinson". Bloom’s reimagining of Dickinson was ignited when she learned that the poet was a pianist and improviser, reaffirming Bloom’s intuitive connection to the jazz-like quality of Dickinson’s writing. Bloom  was inspired by the “extraordinary vitality” and “the felt improvisatory impulse” in Dickinson’s language, a transcendent bond linking the poetic art of Bloom’s 19th century muse with the lyrical saxophonist and composer’s own poetically imaginative, wild lines and creative 21st century music. “Even though I don’t always understand her, I always felt that Emily used words the way jazz musicians use notes.”

The performance will feature poetry recitation from actress Deborah Rush which will echo and intermingle with music performed by Jane Ira Bloom, Dawn Clement (piano), and Mark Helias (bass).  

 Rizzoli Music Aperitivo is sponsored by Mionetto Prosecco and curated by Mondo Jazz, the weekly Radio Free Brooklyn show dedicated to international jazz.

Yacine Boulares and Vincent Segal

Live at Rizzoli Bookstore, NYC

Sunday 21 October 2018 - 5pm

1133 Broadway (btw 25th and 26th st.)

In a special duo show, Yacine Boulares and Vincent Segal will present music from Suites for Abu Sadiya along with readings of poems and songs from the Tunisian Stambeli tradition.  
 
In 2014 Brooklyn based French-Tunisian saxophonist Yacine Boulares met French cellist Vincent Segal on the recording of Placido Domingo's intimate album Encanto del Mar and they decided to work together on a new project reimagining the forgotten Stambeli repertoire. Stambeli is a healing trance music created by the descendants of Sub-Saharan slaves brought to Tunisia. Boulares and Segal's original compositions form a series of variations on the legend of the hunter Abu Sadiya. In his wandering search for his enslaved daughter, Abu Sadiya danced and sang his sorrow in the streets of Tunis thus becoming the first musician of Stambeli and personifying the memory of Sub-Saharan slaves in Tunisia.
