About Syrinx: XXII
The remarkable synergy of three outstanding musicians, each bringing to the stage his own point of view and expertise. With a vast array of flutes of all kinds and sizes - a veritable pan-pipe or Syrinx - a new approach to music and programming - thinking forward to the 22nd Century is forged: unrestrained, creative, collaborative, and always at the highest artistic level.
With the recorder player António Carrilho bringing a specialization in the baroque and pre-baroque as well as the avant-garde, the flutist Katharine Rawdon, whose repertoire centers on the modern, but reaches back through the 19th century to the baroque, and the New York pianist Raj Bhimani, bringing a sensitivity for the Romantic and French repertoire, the stage is set for a combustive mix and the pure delight of the senses.
Syrinx: XXII had its premier concert in Manhattan in April, 2014, receiving an immediate invitation to return in 2015, along with invitations to perform at the CCB in Lisbon in 2015. The group toured India in 2016 and is planning their next tour for November of 2018. Composers have taken note and have written for the group’s distinctive sound and musicianship.
