Recently, I’ve been incredibly lucky to share the stage with great Italian jazz pianist Enrico Pieranunzi at Sevilla Early Music Festival (FeMÀS). We both liked the experience, so we’re eager to further collaborate and see how this project develops.

Here’s a short promotional video of our duo program A Baroque Dream, recorded from our concert on March 15, 2015, at Festival de Música Antigua de Sevilla (FeMÀS).*

* Apologies for the bad audio quality: our recording equipment failed at the very last moment, so the only available audio was captured by the video camera, placed at the end of the hall. Footage by courtesy of the festival.

“Parrilla desplegó todo su arsenal de virtuosismo, su enorme fiato y, sobre todo, su fantasía a la hora de glosar e improvisar, en perfecta comunión con el teclado de Pieranunzi. Una última improvisación sobre el Siciliano de Bach, creada al repente, dejó asombrados a los incondicionales”.
