5 Senses finds its inspiration in the music of the past and resolves it in the emotions of today.
ROBERTO PETROLI TRIO
Stylistic contrasts, mixture of colors and virtuosity is what characterize the Trio of the italian clarinet player Roberto Petroli. Love for classical music on the one hand, passion for jazz on the other fuse together in passionate rhythms full of fire.
With Stefania Verità (Cello and Electric Cello) and Gianvito di Maio (Keyboards) Roberto’s versatility is particularly expressed: the three musicians connect different musical worlds and paint the most colorful soundscapes.
To stylistically describe this Trio is not easy, is it chamber music? Jazz Combo? World music? Nothing really fits, but a little of everything fits..
The concerts are full of surprises and live through the spontaneity and improvisation as well as the precise interaction and skillful combinations of sounds.
Roberto Petroli: clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, soprano sax,
Stefania Verità: Cello & Electric cello
Gianvito di Maio: Piano & Keyboard
