ZOE BLACK & JOE CHINDAMO
Coming this year
Zoe Black & Joe Chindamo's
New Contemporary Classical project "SYMBIOSIS"
Zoe Black and Joe Chindamo are routinely described as edgy and a welcome new and unique voice in contemporary classical music. Their concert performances and two CD releases have met with the highest acclaim from critics and peers. In the past year, they were highlights at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, The Port Fairy Spring Festival, Canberra Street Theatre, Melba Hall, Sandgate Music Festival and Peninsula Festival. They are regular performers on ABC FM Sunday Live and have their own series at the Melbourne Recital Centre. In February 2014, following the release of Dido's Lament, they were the subject of a 4 page feature in Limelight. The same recording was nominated for an ARIA for best classical album of 2014. Their 4 and 5 star reviews of concerts and CDs have emphasised their commitment to new music which displays a daring disregard for boundaries.
"I wouldn't even label this crossover: instead of breaking down boundaries, this duo appears not to notice them…This recording (Dido's Lament) is brimming with creativity. It's a delight to hear…The duo must be lauded for forging a style entirely their own."
Francis Merson, editor LIMELIGHT MAGAZINE
