The Heart Of Frida – CD Release Concert – 8pm, Saturday October 1, 2016 The Moss Theater, Santa Monica
A Hardly Strictly Classical Concert:
Please join pianist/composer and Steinway artist, Starr Parodi with her friends, recording artist Louis Price (former lead vocalist of The Temptations), and amazing aerial artists The Steben Twins (formerly of Cirque du Soleil) for a night of adventurous music and aerial artistry – celebrating the Life and Art of Frida Kahlo.
With The Heart Of Frida, Starr takes us on journeys that explore neo-classical & new age genres and her inviting themes and improvisations reveal deeper insight and nuance with every listen. Oxford Press author & Keyboard Magazine reviewer, Mark Vail writes: “Starr Parodi is one of the most talented and passionate pianists and composers of the 21st century. Her lyrical piano lines and unique chord progressions take unexpected and eloquent turns that keep you enthralled in her music. Her precise and astounding touch is unequalled. With “The Heart Of Frida”, Starr has reaffirmed her position as one of my all-time favorite musicians.”
Kathy Parsons of MainlyPiano.com writes:”To say that I was mesmerized with her performance would be a huge understatement, so I wondered if that same magic would come across in the album – it does! Inspired by the life and art of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo…Wow! What an album! I give The Heart of Frida my highest recommendation! It is available from Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby. Don’t miss it!”
“The Heart of Frida, is an enthralling musical tribute to Mexico’s favorite daughter, transcendental folk painter Frida Kahlo. Like Kahlo, Parodi’s music is vividly bright and brutally honest” – RJ Lannan, Zone Music Reporter
“piano music does not get much better than The Heart of Frida and I could not say it any more succinctly than that. This is clarity of vision and inspiration brought to your ears, heart and spirit through the fingers of Starr Parodi. Surely this recording will be receiving more accolades then I could possibly give it. If there is such a thing as musical perfection, then this is as close as it gets.” – Keith Hannaleck, New Age Music Reviews
