Torrio! feat. Ilaria Crociani

MOTUS ANIMI

The Jazzlab

MIJF ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
"Torrio! encapsulates a rare and near-perfect moment when three tremendously capable musicians have come together and applied their substantial talents to the deeper subtleties of spontaneously created music in the trio format" – Stuart Vandergraaff, Loudmouth

There is something elusive yet so distinctive in Italian music that makes it immediately recognisable. It allows Alessandro Scarlatti or Barbara Strozzi’s music to be performed alongside Ennio Morricone or Bruno Martino’s.

MOTUS ANIMI, or “moves of the soul”, is the Latin equivalent for the English “emotions”

In this unique festival-only performance, Tuscan-born singer Ilaria Crociani joins Paul Grabowsky, Mirko Guerrini and Niko Schäuble’s Torrio! in an exploration of the “emotions” underpinning Italian music through an eclectic selection of baroque arias, contemporary jazz songs, and movie soundtracks.
