FFUSION OF JAZZ AND CLASSICAL MUSIC
with Giovanni Mirabassi, Baptiste Herbin,
François Moutin and Lukmil Perez
In the press…
“Eva Slongo excels in classical music while being in love with the freedom of expression inherent in jazz”
“Eva Slongo settles in the court of the great violinists”
“With Eva Slongo, the melodies of Beethoven, Satie or even Fauré sound like modern jazz standards… She enjoys making frozen scores groove and endowing them with timbres and jazzy phrasing”
“The revival of themes by Erik Satie “Gnossienne”, Gabriel Fauré “Sicilienne” or Ludwig van Beethoven, “Allegreto, 7th symphony, 2nd movement” offer surprising and very successful new visions. Eva Slongo’s own compositions demonstrate another aspect of the breadth of her talent.
“Eva Slongo bridges seemingly disparate cultures with elegance and passion.
ALL ABOUT JAZZ
“She breathes a rebellious spirit into the symphonic vestiges, stirs up the delicacies of her alto voice, reconciles aesthetics in traveling arpeggios. »
“A formidable stage musician, she cultivates an elegant transparency between the voice and the violin, which mix and shape the timbres, the improvisations. »
RADIO SUISSE ESPACE 2
“A very nice record to reconcile two worlds that think they are foreign. »
LA GAZETTE BLEUE D’ACTION JAZZ

Teaser of the album SOUFFLE
“Some encounters give a new impetus, a new direction, as evidence…
A new “Breath”, hence the title of this album born from my meeting with Giovanni Mirabassi.
Always rocked by classical music, it is in jazz improvisation that I found a healthy freedom of expression.
The challenge of this album: to bring these two musical universes together, these two pillars of my personality.
A quest for both musical and personal authenticity, a reconciliation between my past and my present. “
“ Eva Slongo is one of the rising stars in the world of jazz violinists. “
” I am happy to welcome the young and talented Eva Slongo into the small club of modern jazz violinists. Her playing and composing are both inspired and musical and her beautiful singing ability adds a unique touch to her album, on which we also hear top musicians and a beautiful solo by Didier Lockwood. “
