This Happy Madness!

Sun 5 Apr

Piano & accordion perform the music of Jobim & Piazzolla.

Ambre Hammond and Marcello Maio are an accomplished duo who have reunited for an enchanting evening of music by South American composers Astor Piazzolla (Argentina) and Antônio Carlos Jobim (Brazil).

Classical pianist Ambre and accordion virtuoso Marcello combine forces as they orchestrate their instruments to bring passion and fire to their own exquisite arrangements of some of Piazzolla’s most beloved Tangos.

They also bring the music of Jobim to the mix, as they prepare to release their second collaborative album playing arrangements of lesser known yet stunningly beautiful works by this magnificent classical Brazilian composer. Recorded with acclaimed Grammy-nominated producer Simon Cohen, their new album features Samba and Bossa inspired music infused with uniquely seductive Brazilian rhythms that this pair have become known for.

A guaranteed evening of fun banter and heated musical passion from two of Sydney’s most fiery musicians – a captivating and magical night guaranteed.
