Cristina Zavalloni,

Cristina Zavalloni "I wanted to be a dancer but I would never have given up on music: Vocal Technique always, since she was little.
Whether it's writing for my jazz groups, playing a Britten or Monteverdi opera, singing in a big room or a small club, creating new roles like Anaïs Nin, Sor Juana or the others written for me by composer Louis Andriessen, I always approach music with respect.

In so many years, I have learned to move in musical worlds seemingly distant from each other and if they ask me how to switch from jazz to opera, I reply that it is a problem of rehearsal times and schedules, never of music.
I love the historical twentieth century, a repertoire that I have been exhibiting for years in duo with Andrea Rebaudengo and now also with Gabriele Mirabassi and Danusha Waskiewicz. Songs like Berio's Folk Songs, Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire, Poulenc's La Voix Humaine have become part of me.

And when I play with my Special Dish quartet or i'm a guest of Uri Caine or Paolo Fresu bands, I feel like I'm coming home.
I consider myself a jazz singer because jazz was my first love: I learned from the voices of Sarah Vaughan, Joni Mitchell, Cassandra Wilson and many others.
Then the discovery of Cathy Berberian and the modern repertoire came to me. This led me to collaborate with wonderful composers in the world of contemporary classical music.

Singing, writing and composing have an equally great value in my life.
When I have the opportunity, I enjoy wearing the shoes of the cultural popularizer: this is how the Ephemerides Music were born, television pills broadcast on RAI3, collaborates with the Sainr louis Jazz’s Cool .

Cristina Zavalloni,

... Multitasking by instinct, Zavalloni, with her powerful yet surrendering voice to the most diverse generous, interprets James Macmillan, experiments with the Baroque repertoire, cultivates the passion for Brazilian folk music, is passionate about the chamber repertoire of the twentieth century, duets with jazz pianists...

Singer, performer, composer, Cristina Zavalloni is one of the most original and fascinating characters on the Italian scene. Between jazz and contemporary music, between unusual structures and songs, the Bolognese singer and author moved with intelligence and passion by creating albums and concerts that made her win the esteem of many of her colleagues and, above all, the attention of the public, bringing her to international success.

Cristina Zavalloni, the Great. Like Ella Fitzgerald and Cathy Berberian, Zavalloni loves to impressionate with ever-different musical choices.
