    Event description

    St James' King Street Sydney in partnership with St Peter's Eastern Hill, Melbourne and proud to collaborate in presenting a concert featuring Virtuoso Jazz Pianists Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi at St James' King Street on Thursday 18th July at 7pm. 

    Pioneers in the use of four-hands piano in jazz, Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi have earned widespread success with their arrangements of classics from the stride piano, ragtime, and boogie woogie repertoires, as well as from the swing era and the Great American Songbook. They have performed across the United States, Europe, and Japan, winning the acclaim of critics and fans alike. Blending impeccable technique and mature musicality with humor and showmanship, they are considered the most engaging piano duo dedicated to the repertoire of classic jazz.

     Stephanie (from St. Louis), a leading exponent of stride piano, and Paolo (from Milan), one of Italy’s foremost jazz pianists, met at a piano festival in Switzerland in 2008. Three years later, they started to collaborate on a four-hands piano project dedicated to classic jazz, preparing arrangements of songs from the swing era, as well as drawing from the ragtime and blues repertoire. Following the release of their first album, Two for One (2012), they have been invited to perform widely in the United States, Europe, and Japan. A second CD, Sentimental Journey (2014), shows Stephanie and Paolo’s commitment to the formula of four-hands duets on one piano, rarely used in jazz. Their partnership continued with Double Trio Live 2015 and Double Trio Always (2016), recorded in the piano trio setting, but with two pianists instead of one. In 2018, they released their first album on two pianos, Broadway and More.

    The four-hands piano duo has performed in a variety of venues, including the Gilmore Keyboard Festival, Jazz at Filoli, the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, the Kobe Jazz Street Festival in Japan, the London Jazz Festival, the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, the Ascona Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Silkeborg Riverboat Jazz Festival in Denmark, the Bohém Ragtime & Jazz Festival in Hungary, the Milan Conservatory, Teatro Dal Verme Milano, Jazzland in Vienna, Jazz Bistro in Toronto, and other jazz clubs.

    Stephanie writes:

    Our concert touring has brought us all over Europe and the US and we play for performing arts centres, jazz and classical music series, jazz festivals, and piano festivals. We have had an active YouTube presence for the last 10+ years and have found fans who enjoy our music from all over the world.
    Paolo and I have specialized in playing early American popular music. Our show consists of original arrangements in four hands of tunes from the classic jazz repertoire (swing, stride piano, boogie woogie, ragtime and songs from the Great American Songbook).
