Concert for Two Pianos (Oakland and San Francisco)

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see pianists Davide Verotta and Anne Sajdera in a concert!

Davide Verotta & Anne Sajdera will present an evening of original music that brings new voices to the limited repertoire for two pianos.

About Anne:
As a pianist, composer, bandleader and accompanist, Anne Sajdera is a creative force whose music encompasses an unusually far-flung array of traditions. With musical roots spanning the globe, she melds American and Brazilian jazz to her training in European and Hindustani classical music, creating an utterly personal sound that’s melodically verdant, harmonically sophisticated and rhythmically compelling.

Pianist/composer Anne Sajdera, long an invaluable part of the Bay Area Brazilian music scene, makes a much-anticipated debut with Azul, which highlights her exquisite touch and rhythmic acuity. Sajdera co-produced the CD with Ray Obiedo and utilizes her dynamic trio (Gary Brown, Paul van Wageningen) plus percussionists Airto Moreira and Michael Spiro. In addition to Sajdera’s sophisticated originals, repertoire includes compositions by Egberto Gismonti, Ivan Lins, and Wayne Shorter.
