READ POST November with Tritticali

How did it get to be November so soon? And boy do I need to update with new stuff…

TRIO TRITTICALI is excited to return to Brooklyn for a unique show. We are all composer/performers in our own right, so we decided to showcase our individual talents with this performance. This concert will feature each of us performing our own solo compositions on the first half. Featured in these compositions dancers Sarah Pope and Jennifer Wilenta, as well as electronic effects and general merriment. The second half will feature more trio originals, including a brand new piece by composer/violinist, Tom Swafford and a new surf rock arrangement.

And I’m galloping along, trying to catch up with updating this website.

No need to take out the whip and hurry to a feverishly imagined finish line. I’ve finally put up a few videos on YouTube and you can check those out at the helyee channel. Here’s one to start:

READ POST Review of Trio Tritticali’s recent show at Caffe Vivaldi

Lucid Culture just published a glowing review of Trio Tritticali’s recent show at Caffe Vivaldi. Here are a couple of tidbits from the review…

“In concert, they destroyed any cliche about classically-trained players being lost when it comes to jamming.”

“Combining the exacting virtuosity of a classical ensemble with the wild improvisational edge of a jazz band, there’s no other group like them in the New York area.”

Lucid Culture reviewed Trio Tritticali’s debut album, and we’re honored to be named as one of the best albums of 2011.

“…Trio Tritticali have just released their new Issue # 1, one of the most gripping, intelligent, richly eclectic albums of recent years. Drawing on elements as diverse as Egyptian dance vamps, the baroque, bossa nova, tango and European Romantic chamber music, they blend those styles together seamlessly and imaginatively for a bracingly intricate sound that’s uniquely their own.”
