LA TRACE DE SATYR

An evening combining classical songs and jazz improvisation, with music spanning over 250 years, featuring the songs of Rameau, Fauré, Poulenc, Debussy, Satie, Messaien, Barbara, Serge Gainsbourg, and Artur H, featuring three world-renowned Canadian artists.

Patricia O'Callaghan is something of a wandering minstrel, with six solo albums and many interesting collaborations along the way. A speaker of French, Spanish, and German, her early recordings focused on European cabaret, but one of Patricia's most unique talents is the ability to blend a variety of languages and musical genres seamlessly together in her concerts, and completely embody whatever style she is singing at any given moment. “This Toronto soprano can sing a 100-year-old German tune so lustily that you almost don't need a translation to know that someone's about to get his throat cut or get laid or both." (The National Post) «O'Callaghan sings her diverse material as if it was always meant to go side-by-side and by the end of the evening, it's easy to believe her.» (Chart Attack)

Genre defying pianist/improviser Marilyn Lerner performs to acclaim internationally, from her native Montreal to Havana, from Jerusalem to Amsterdam and the Ukraine. Her groundbreaking recordings have garnered much recognition, including her 2 solo recordings Luminance and Romanian Fantasy and Special Angel with Sonny Greenwich. Her intimate knowledge of the piano, combined with a fearless experimental and passionate spirit render her a true original. Lerner’s work spans the worlds of jazz, creative improvisation, klezmer, and 20th century classical music. In 2016, Lerner/Filiano/Grassi- Live at Edgefest, was released on vinyl by NoBusiness Records, and in 2017 her trio, Ugly Beauties (Matt Brubeck, cello and Nick Fraser, drums) released its second CD, Strange Attractors.

Andrew Downing is a Toronto based double bass player, cellist, composer and bandleader. He plays primarily in the creative jazz scene in Canada, but also performs classical chamber music, improvised music, folk and roots music, and world music. His projects include MELODEON, a 7-piece chamber ensemble that performs live music to silent films and ANAHTAR, a Turkish-Canadian project inspired by his yearly visits to İstanbul, Turkey and OTTERVILLE, a quiet jazz ensemble. He has composed music for The Vancouver Bach Choir, the Prince George Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra London, and he has arranged music for The Gryphon Trio, the Art of Time Ensemble and Patricia O’Callaghan. He has won two Juno awards for work with his group The Great Uncles of the Revolution and Zubot and Dawson and performs regularly with David Occhipinti, The Lina Allemano Four, Jayme Stone and Patricia O’Callaghan.
