Pierino e il Lupo in Jazz
Illustration: Gennaro Scarpetta
An original Jazz revisitation of the Sergei Prokofiev’s tale, “Peter and the Wolf”, signed by Igor Caiazza. As with the original version, each character of the Work is represented by a different instrument, and in this case, because it is a Jazz Band instead of a Symphony Orchestra, instruments harmonies and rhythms takes a completely different flavor. The structure, themes and tones of the work remain unchanged, but the harmonies and the rhythms become modern. So, ranging from Swing to Latin, from Rock to Jazz Ballad, “Pierino e il Lupo in Jazz” is a light show but intellectual in the same time, comic but intimate, for children and adults, for jazz fans but not only!
