The Pivetta Duo: Latin Meets French

Saturday, August 17, 7:30 p.m.

ABOUT THE EVENT


Hailed for her breathtaking technical skill, intoxicating musicality and deep interpretational understanding, flutist Debra Reuter-Pivetta enjoys a diverse career as soloist, chamber artist, orchestral player, and teacher. Federico Pivetta is a versatile pianist with a unique mastery of both classical and jazz styles. Together they form the award winning Pivetta Duo, a North Carolina based husband and wife duo dedicated to involving audiences of all ages with their energetic and imaginative programming.

Standing ovations across the United States reflect the public's enthusiasm for the Pivetta Duo:

“From beginning to end, the audience was treated to wonderfully musical phrase making and breathtaking technical skill.” -Delta County Independent

In Italy, the critics claim: “This was, without any doubt, one of the best concerts." - L’Amico del Popolo.

Federico and Debra will present a crossover program with a diverse repertoire of Jazz and Latin influenced pieces. The first half will feature pieces by Paquito D’Rivera, Astor Piazzolla and Mike Mower. For the second half of the concert, the Pivettas will be joined by friends and colleagues Matt Kendrick on bass and John Wilson on drums. The Quartet will be performing the iconic Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio, by far the most popular composition by the prolific French composer, Claude Bolling.
