“It marries classical music and rock, the composed and the spontaneous”
“Off the Score” is a sizzling performance collaboration between drum legend Stewart Copeland (The Police), visionary pianist Jon Kimura Parker, Met Opera violinist Yoon Kwon, rising star bassist Marlon Martinez and champion of the Electronic Valve Instrument (EVI) Judd Miller. New works by Copeland and Parker collide with amped up renditions of great pieces from the classical canon including Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G and Piazzolla’s Oblivion. Add in jazz pianist Mike Garson’s Paganini Variations and a wild arrangement of an Aphex Twin tune and the annihilation of genre is complete! The debut tour in spring 2015 played to ecstatic crowds who jumped to their feet during Parker’s white hot arrangement of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, which the Toronto Star claimed “single-handedly advanced global warming” when performed as a solo work on his unanimously praised CD Rite. Future audiences will be eager to take an inspiring look at a musical universe that shines beyond definition.
Repertoire includes Copeland’s own works alongside Bach, Prokofiev, Ravel and Stravinsky.
