Special guest: Gary Daley (piano)
Following up from their highly acclaimed album Across the Top (Tall Poppies) Paul Cutlan’s String Project present this ambitious suite alongside new material featuring special guest Gary Daley on piano. Together the group traverse many styles including 20th century classical music, jazz improvisation and dance rhythms from the Balkans and South America.
“Hybrids can be mongrels, but Cutlan’s works are refreshingly original and exude vitality… the composing and improvising are of equal merit – some achievement for such an ambitious, genredefying project.”
“There is much magic to Across the Top, and much depth. Paul Cutlan has produced a work that is entirely of its own world, taking much that is good from a range of genres and influences – and, like any worthwhile artwork, life itself – and filtering it through his own unique vision.”
“Voices shift and intertwine: the balance of the ensemble resonance is always recalibrating. Cutlan’s writing throughout Across the Top … creates considerable beauty and tension. This music is lustrous: the more one listens to it, the better it will get.”
“A neat collision of the jazz and classical worlds… It is a real treasure trove of musical impressions…
Steve Moffat, Daily Telegraph
“…his sense of tonal colour and instrumental textures are indeed highly alluring. …a tightly structured and rather ingenious approach to musical cross-fertilisation within contemporary composition of a uniquely Australian kind”
