Antonio Ciacca has been a longtime jazz musician, playing since he was in his teenage years. With so many different genres and musical styles, Antonio believes in breaking the stigma of sticking to one genre. The jazz artist today is busy exploring classical, religious, and gospel music.
‘String Quartet’ is Antonio’s first classical record, showcasing his ear for a genre other than jazz. The album is performed by the highly acclaimed string group, “Selah Quartet.” The two compositions in the album are dedicated to the cultural giants Pier Paolo Pasolini and Walt Whitman. Antonio intellectually mastered the album to represent a blend of Italian and American cultures. The end result is a range of fluid sounds and compositions that many classical music lovers will find soothing.
Apart from his recent release, Antonio has had the opportunity to play his compositions live for his avid listeners. His compositions for jazz big band, orchestras, movie soundtracks, ballet, chamber ensembles, and solo piano have been performed worldwide. This includes performing for diverse audiences in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Teatro Regio of Parma, and Vatican Hall.
‘String Quartet’ is a complex album that contains a variety of harmonies, timbres, and octaves. This way, Antonio and Selah Quartet have made sure there is something in it for every listener out there. Listeners will surely appreciate the cultural and musical journey that the album takes you through.
