A classical, jazzy twist in two cities

Paphos will be swinging and moving to the sounds of the Papageorgio String Quartet and the voice of jazz singer Sarah Fenwick on Saturday, while Nicosians won’t be left wondering, as they can also enjoy the musical sounds on Sunday.

While the quartet will get us all bopping to the sounds of some very well-known rock and pop songs – but with a classical twist – Fenwick will show off her jazzy notes.

The four members of the Papageorgio String Quartet, Constantin Papageorgio, Iraklis Mitellas, Nikolas Papageorgiou and Gurhan Nuray, have one album to their name entitled A Tribute to the Classic Rock.

If you enjoy rocking to the sounds of The Scorpions, The Eagles, Queen, Europe, Alice Cooper and Metallica, then you will definitely appreciate the new way in which the quartet present their sounds.

According to the quartet’s website the album is meant to “present the songs with their original structure and harmony, providing at the same time the rich colours of a string quartet”.

Bringing a female touch to the stage will be Lady Jazz herself. Fenwick studied classical vocal technique and used this very strong foundation to develop her three-octave range in the Jazz style.

Since starting her professional music career in 1991, she has performed in Cyprus, Israel, Kuwait, Italy and elsewhere. She has recorded and produced four CDs.

The two performances are part of the Third Apollon International Arts Festival 2016.
