A true “musical alchemist,” Francesco Turrisi is one of the most striking pianists to come out of the European jazz scene in the past decade.

Collaborations with the likes of Bobby McFerrin, The King’s Singers, Philippe Jaroussky, and Rhiannon Giddens illustrate a remarkable versatility. Last in Aotearoa with audience favourites L’Arpeggiata, 2019 sees Turrisi take the stage solo.

Northern Migrations features original solo piano compositions and improvisations, narrating the story of his lifelong journey from the heart of the Mediterranean to the moody surrounds of Ireland.

Formal and folkloric, Turrisi weaves early-Baroque ostinato lines, Mediterranean modal melodies, minimalistic grooves, and Renaissance counterpoint through a prism of jazz improvisation, creating a unique and haunting musical language.
