Nick Russoniello & The Acacia Quartet
Sit back and enjoy works by Chick Corea, Elena Kats Chernin, Jeremy Rose
and Nick Russoniello within the unique soundscape of the saxophone with strings. Russoniello sings, slaps, scoops and slides in this virtuosic exploration of music from ragtime to rock and everything between.
“As far as debuts go, this one is pretty remarkable.” Stephanie Eslake Cut Common
“Russoniello was cool and mellow, the sax sounding like rich, gold chocolate….a dazzling virtuoso display by the composer and performer himself. “
Lynne Lancaster Sydney Arts Guide
“A former Young Performer comes of age…everything one would expect of fine chamber music playing: a sensitivity towards tonal and timbral balance, a keen ear for flexible musical conversation and, perhaps most importantly, a sense of fun.”
