‘A spectacular program breathtakingly magnificent in its delivery.’ CutCommon
Pianist and composer Gemma Turvey leads members of the New Palm Court Orchestra (NPCO) with guest guitarist Gidi Ifergan in a moving evening of Hebraic inspired music.
Featuring George Dreyfus’ ‘Larino, Safe Haven’, Turvey’s ‘Ha Ben & Coda’, traditional melodies and Ernest Bloch’s heartfelt ‘From Jewish Life’. This evening will also include a free 15 minute pre-concert talk.
The NPCO is an exciting chamber ensemble bridging traditions using chamber music and improvisation. Founded and led by Turvey in 2011, the NPCO has a core of nine players comprising some of Melbourne’s talented classical, jazz and improvising musicians. The NPCO is about inspiring and awakening audiences to the art of improvisation in music, making each performance fresh and unique. Their performances champion Australian composers, and span classical, jazz, folk and Latin American influences and feature melodic improvisation in almost every work.
