Event Details

Loretta Palmeiro and Mark Isaacs compose their music together on the spot, in real time, and without any safety net or roadmap. Demonstrating how music can elegantly respond to change, the duo draws on intuition, imagination and innovation as they take listeners on a remarkable and evolving voyage. The results can be delicate, furious or passionate: proof that unpredictability can be a beautiful journey even when the destination is unknown. Their music navigates through all boundaries between jazz, classical music, new music and many other genres.

Past major live performances have included: ‭2017 Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival ‬ ‭2018 Sydney Conservatorium Jazz Festival ‬ ‭2010 Sunday series at Annandale Creative Arts Centre ‬ ‭2020 SIMA Jazz: Now ‬ ‭2020 NSW Government ‘Great Southern Nights’ @ StudioW, Woolloomooloo ‬

During 2020 they released an album, an EP and two premiere music videos.

Loretta Palmeiro & Mark Isaacs will perform at ‭Melbourne Recital Centre‬ on Saturday 13th November 2021

‭"Palmeiro makes a gorgeous, clean-edged, mostly vibrato-free sound on soprano....spearing, heart-rending lines....they travel deep into a land of melodic luxuriance....jointly develop narratives with that singular magic of high-calibre improvising whereby one is left wondering how we got here from where we were ‬‭five minutes ago....Isaacs churns up some mighty agitation at the piano's bottom end" SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, "Spectrum" 4½ stars ‬ ‭

"A deep, near spiritual, communication, along with an openness to risk-taking, and the trust and confidence it requires....at once deeply lyrical and full of yearning....this work grows in magnitude with each listening...It is intensely focused, and at times delicate music, complex in its construction, which takes the listener on a lyrical and ‬ ‭impassioned journey.” DES COWLEY Rhythms Magazine. ‬

‭“A gorgeous meeting of two high-level musical minds and hearts.” ‬ ‭JAMES GAVIN Music biographer & writer for The New York Times and Vanity Fair ‬ Music
