Loretta Palmeiro & Mark Isaacs

Recital Hall East 3pm

Mark Isaacs  piano  

Loretta Palmeiro  soprano saxophone  

Pianist Mark Isaacs and soprano saxophonist Loretta Palmeiro perform all original and improvised compositions in their duo titled Some Of Two Parts. Built on a jazz-meets-contemporary-classical bedrock and with folkloric elements, Some of Two Parts mimic, play, create and evolve in real-time composition. Musical qualities such as flamenco and fado are also visited. What results can be brash, delicate, passionate or furious. The duo were a splash at their major debut performance in the Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival and they have also made several live radio appearances. This exciting duo will take listeners on a thrilling journey as they paint the canvas of time with their musical creations. 

Presented in conjunction with the Sydney Improvised Music Association 

...music that is immediately engaging on so many levels. The ear and heart are transported through modern pastoral melodies, improvisations, abstract nuances, and a narrative that embraces contemporary classical, European folk, and jazz. I love their music. ”
