Quadrivium 60 is an imaginary place in which jazz, fusion and European tradition mingle and recreate, reinvent all the roads traveled, the experiences made, all the Music played, listened to, digested, loved, until they converge into a unified vision, a point of restart equipped with a new look, clear, transparent, a symbol of open spaces.

Quadrivium 60 is a mixture of styles and languages, but also of men, of artists, because in Music the unprecedented confrontation involves reinterpretations, insights that perhaps are not entirely new, but always offer a further point of view, never so obvious or predictable and often suggesting different and only partially explored paths.

Together with Alberto Giraldi (pianist and composer), three excellent musicians: Filiberto Palermini (alto and soprano sax) and Pier Paolo Ferroni (drums), fine artists who are well acquainted with the author’s inventions and intentions and know how to give a timely, yet imaginative and personal interpretation of them; Marco Siniscalco (electric bass), a superb and navigated musician, who adds his unique and unmistakable, distinctive traits, proper to a modern and progressive vision, to the project.

The Music of Quadrivium 60 is both a goal and a starting point. Being rooted in one’s ideas but extremely flexible in the paths of writing is the best way for a composer to never stop and always be in the condition of a seeker. Thus, synthesis and renewal, to search and search again in the meanderings of an ever-evolving sonic universe that can still tell so much, beyond the boundaries of styles and affiliations.
