Jazz for a saxophone and piano

Paphos will be swayed once again by the sounds of live music at one of its most active art hubs, Tech-nopolis 20 with a jazz music concert on March 16 starring saxophonist George Krasidis and pianist George Morphitis.

The two musicians will share the stage in a concert full of soul and passion. Their creativity will merge in an explosive performance, presenting works taken from the standard jazz repertoire. The two jazz masters Krasidis and Morphitis are among “the most potent and influential jazz instrumentalists in the island of Cyprus” organisers say.

And rightfully so it appears, as saxophonist, clarinettist, composer, conductor and educator Krasidis studied at Berklee college of Music and at Indiana University of Pennsylvania before returning to Cyprus and founding the Jazzologia Cyprus Big Band and Saxomania Syndicate Saxophone Ensemble. Among his performances and album recordings, Krasidis today is the band master of Limassol Municipality Concert Band and teaches saxophone and the jazz idiom at the ARTE Music Academy in Nicosia and at the Cyprus state Music Schools.

Similarly, Morfitis studied jazz music at Nakas music school in Athens before studying classical composition, arranging and Jazz/Latin performance at ISA conservatory in Havana Cuba. His musical studying and teaching journey continued to The Netherlands and Madrid, before he settled back on the island. Now he teaches privately and performs all over the island and abroad with different formats including his own original projects.
