Brackenbury Bianco Duo

Visio improvisus‘ is a new project by BrackenburyBianco-  sacred music of St.Hildegard von Bingen brought to a different plateau by a masterful improvisational duo.’

‘Talk about your dynamic duos. Drummer/bassist Tony Bianco and violinist/violist Faith Brackenbury have pooled their talents to come up with one of the best such meetings in recent memory.’ ~DowntownMusicGallery, New York

Tony Bianco is an American jazz drummer and composer from New York City who moved to Europe in the early nineties. He has been described as a “true master of the drums “. He has played and recorded with many prominent jazz musicians including Elton Dean, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Dave Liebman, Paul Dunmall, and Evan Parker. Bianco is known for his “mercurial”, “octopusian” drumming style, which combines the sounds of free jazz and straight jazz and reflects Bianco’s “musical creed – to be “loose and tense, free and strict”. (wiki)

Faith Brackenbury is an improvising violinist/violist,vocalist and composer. After post graduate studies in jazz at Birmingham Conservatoire in 2014 she went on to play with alto saxophonist Martin Speake in ‘Mafarowi’,and the two released a duo album ‘Zephyr’ in 2016. Brackenbury’s ‘KnifeAngel’ sextet album was released in 2018.

Faith and Tony met in 2020 and immediately forged a strong creative relationship, releasing their first album ‘Rising Up’, (Discus) in 2021. Their exploration of Hildegard von Bingen’s fluent sacred music together with their own improvisational strengths, creates a truly spiritual combination .
