with Special Guest Chequerboard
Berlin-based Italian composer Federico Albanese returns to Pavilion Theatre with Special Guest Chequerboard for an evening of sweeping, cinematic music that transcends genre.
Albanese’s compositions are airy and cinematic, blending classical music, pop and psychedelia. He studied piano and clarinet as a child before becoming fascinated by rock music, performing in several bands.Influenced by folk, electronic, modern and contemporary classical music, his skills as a composer soon emerged.
Federico has two stunning studio albums under his belt and he’s currently putting the finishing touches on his third record, expected in Spring 2018.
Special Guest Chequerboard, also known as John Lambert, writes dream-like passages centred around exquisite acoustic guitar and textured electronics which the Irish Times has called “truly beautiful music”.
