Soulful expression, instrumental virtuosity, playful banter – these are the hallmarks of an INTERSECTION event, in which the realms of concert and popular music are seamlessly dovetailed. The typical INTERSECTION program is an irresistible blend of classical, jazz, Latin, Broadway/film music, vital new commissions, and the group’s own original compositions and arrangements. With its versatility, its engaging stage manner, and its unique mixing of trio, duo and solo formats, INTERSECTION has won a large and avid international fan base: in Japan alone, each of the group’s numerous CDs and DVDs has shot to the top of the classical and crossover charts. Ranging from a Piazzolla tango to a Jobim bossa nova, from a West Side Story melody to a gossamer Mendelssohn scherzo, an evening spent with INTERSECTION is an unforgettable one for any audience.
