harmonia

In 1994, Italian chamber music ensemble Harmonia recorded an album "Harmonia Meets Zappa" on which they played their arrangements of Frank Zappa compositions. Shortly thereafter they also toured Europe to perform these pieces live.
One of the album tracks can also be found on another Materiali Sonori publication called "Sonora 4/94".

The picture on the right was taken by NotPedro and shows the band live at the Zappanale festival in 2007.

Harmonia is:

  • Orio Odori: clarinets
  • Damiano Puliti: cellos, computer programming
  • Alessandra Garosi: piano, keyboards
  • Paolo Corsi: drums, percussion

 

In 2002, the "Harmonia Meets Zappa" album was rereleased with two extra tracks.
The 2003 album "Frank You, Thank! - Volume 2" included Frank Zappa's 'King Kong', a previously unreleased track by the Harmonia Ensemble.
Early 2004, the ensemble toured Europe again with the Zappa repertoire.

The ensemble took part in the 2007 edition of the Zappanale festival. 

Damiano Puliti also recorded with Archaea Strings.
