“Mystical, dark and full of heart”

Peter-Anthony Togni – piano
Jeff Reilly – bass clarinet
 
 
 
 
Peter Togni & Jeff Reilly return to King’s as Blackwood, bringing a common love of improvisation, a passion for taking musical risks, and a deep desire to to connect with their audience.
 
 
 
 
Blackwood is a classical cross-over duo that draws upon the wide ranging performance experience of composer/organist/pianist PETER TOGNI and bass clarinetist/composer JEFF REILLY. Together these two musical soul-searchers have toured the world with the trio Sanctuary, released concertos for bass clarinet and choir, created string orchestra concertos, and created full length works for solo bass clarinet and vocal quartet. Together they have played hundreds of concerts touring Russia, China, Europe and North America performing in a range of contexts: jazz, contemporary classical, choral, orchestral, string orchestra, and Gamelan orchestra. Long time collaborators at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, they have been playing and creating music together since 1998.

 

 
“I was smitten by Togni’s atmospheric force….  and the virtuoso bass clarinettist Jeff Reilly extends his cadenzas across the history of sound, from monody to modernism, in a performance that is dominant and hypnotic. There is something epiphanic about this music…. resist it if you can”
Norman Lebrecht, La Scena Musical
