Zachary Carrettin has performed as violinist and conductor in more than twenty-five countries on four continents, dazzling audiences by fusing ancient music with sounds influenced by South American and European folk traditions, guitar solos by Eddie Van Halen and Jimi Hendrix. Fusing improvisation with decades’ experience researching old manuscripts and performing on original instruments, his performances are singular, unlike any other.
Mina Gajić performs internationally on the piano, electric piano, and on an array of historic nineteenth-century pianos. Her Parisian 1895 Érard grand piano is one of few instruments of this caliber, preserved such that it performs as a new instrument. Mina has developed a reputation for coaxing special tonal colors, “making the piano sound as a bassoon, a guitar, drums”, in Italy, France, Serbia, Austria, South America and the United States.
Linea Perfekta electric baroque chamber orchestra specializes in the riveting, rhythmically-driven, passionate Italian violin concertos, such as the “Four Seasons”. Performing on electric instruments but with baroque bows this ensemble travels through time, bringing the past to the present.
