The Music of Claude Bolling

It will feature some of Cork’s best known musicians who are both staff members and graduates of the CIT Cork School of Music.

This superb ensemble will be performing Claude Bolling's Concerto for Classical Guitar and Jazz Piano and his Picnic Suite - following a very successful rrecent performance at Dublin's National Concert Hall. two contrasting musical forces play in opposing styles in these pieces - the classical guitar and flute against the jazz piano, bass and drums - making for stunningly attractive music incorporating highly melodic passages and sparkling ensembles.

Line up: Jerry Creedon (Guitar), John O'Connor (flutes)), Nicole Panizza (piano), Deirdre Frost (double bass) and Tomas Gall (percussion).
