Ivan Bert feat. Enrico Degani
The two Italian musicians will present at Locarno Garder la Mobiliare 2018 their acoustic live for trumpet, flugelhorn and guitars. The trumpet player and composer Ivan Bert often involves the young guitarist Enrico Degani in his works for contemporary dance in theatres and unconventional venues. Thanks to an opera for ballet dedicated to “Orlando Furioso” of L. Ariosto, which was commissioned from the Fondazione Egri, the sound of this duo is born. These musicians played live the soundtrack, expanding and contaminating with the contemporary jazz language the bel canto tradition, rewriting and modernising even Monteverdi, Caccini, Carissimi’s compositions and adding, during a jazz concert, the movement and breath flow learned from the dancers. A small time machine where the border between the ancient roots of the traditional Renaissance music and the jazz beating disappears.
