Eric Starr - News

Eric has recently become an endorser of Bosphorus Cymbals. In his own words:
"Bosphorus's products are totally hand hammered and they have a depth, expression, color, and nuance that you cannot find in other cymbals."
Eric is pleased to announce a special European concert event!

Eric's composition for tenor saxophone and string quartet entitled "The Stones of Carnac" will receive its European premier at The Lighthouse on November 9th, 2007 in The United Kingdom. Previously called The Poole Centre for the Arts, The Lighthouse is a 15,000 seat venue and the home to the world renowned Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Eric's "Carnac" will serve as the centerpiece in a "classical meets jazz" concert event. It will be performed by the Pavao String Quartet and saxophonist Iain Ballamy.

The Pavao quartet has performed for British royalty on many occasions and has worked with such diverse artists as Sir Paul McCartney, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, and leading contemporary composers Anthony Payne, Arvo Pärt, and Gyorgy Kurtag. Often called the " fantastic Englishman," Iain Ballamy has performed with many leading lights in jazz including Gil Evans, Cedar Walton, Kenny Werner, and fellow Brits Django Bates and Bill Bruford.
