Elektra Morphing Complex : Slavic grooves and meditations
- Date: Saturday, 19 September 2015, 8pm

Ranging from high energy, ‘up-your-beat’ rhythms, to spacious lyrical melodicism, Slavic Grooves and Meditations is a large-scale set of works three years in the making. Including works such as Suspended, In Motion Entwined, Evening in Marrickville, this offering explores and expresses something of the life affirming struggle of composer Romano Crivici’s coming to terms with his Balkan roots and musical influences. A mix of Slavic rhythms, jazz, improvisation and contemporary art music, this is music to fire up and melt your multi-cultural soul.
Originally composed for flute (Carla Thackrah- Tango Paradiso, ex Australian Opera Orchestra), violin and viola (Robert Harris – Principal Viola; Canberra Symphony and freelance soloist) and performed to rapturous European audiences in 2014, Slavic Grooves have now expanded and evolved into their rightful sound and symphonic proportions with the addition of piano (Romano Crivici himself), bass (Alex Henery – Principal Bass, SSO, London, etc) and percussion (Jess Ciampa – Australian Brandenburg and Monsieur Camembert).
Coming together in this combination for the very first time, witness these masters of many genres enjoy sharing and exploring this unique new world-music project… be there, or risk losing your (Slavic) soul!
