Music’s greatest ‘hits’ re-imagined by one of the world’s foremost vibraphones players and his mallets of steel.
Nick Parnell makes old music new again, injecting energy into repertoire that might be familiar to some, but definitely inspirational to all, as evidenced with his latest album release, Vibes Virtuoso.
Guest Pianist: Michael Lerace (winner of the 2008 Royal Over-Seas League Music Competition)
Favourites such as Gershwin’s Summertime, Albeniz’s Tango and Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba – have been cleverly re-imagined by Parnell to create a whole new, vibrant listening experience. The vibraphone superbly melded with piano gets its moment in the spotlight, ranging from the technically challenging to sheer lyrical beauty in the space of a heartbeat.
Parnell’s ongoing ambition is to make available classical music for everyone– something he achieves with enviable mastery through Vibes Virtuoso.
