A Mandolin Journey with the Carlo Aonzo Trio
Tompkins Corners Cultural Center will present the Carlo Aonzo Trio, featuring Mr. Aonzo on mandolin, Lorenzo Piccone on guitar & vocals, and Luciano Puppo on double bass.
Their presentation of A Mandolin Journey is a brilliant, bold and adventurous concert of a broad range of music - not only from their Italian roots, but also American and European ethnic and jazz compositions from David Grisman to Jethro Burns, Jacob do Bandolim and more.
Aonzo says, "Often the mandolin has traveled in 3rd class, accompanying immigrants through seas and continents, inside cardboard suitcases to unknown lands. But wherever it landed it made its new dwelling by cleverly integrating with the local culture. This is confirmed by the different shapes and tunings that it took up within the various musical genres that welcomed it.
"We present the Italian mandolins journey in its various traditional, renewed and reinvented aspects; a modern melting pot of music and culture. A musical map, sailing off from the strong foundations of our tradition towards other interesting and unexpected sonorous routes."
