FRINGE 2018 – EMMA PASK – 3.5K

by Riccardo Barone


The elegant Fortuna Spiegeltent is quite full of enthusiastic fans and friends that don’t dislike a little bit of Emma Pask’s talk between a song and another one, overall about her husband from Uruguay.

Songs are standards evergreen, from Quizás quizás quizás to Beatles passing through Mas que nada, interpreted by the duo.

The pianist Kevin Hunt brilliantly conquers the high state of mind of improvisation, being very present and energetically outspoken (on an electric piano). His solo is dominant, in despite of Emma’s ones who had the chance to show her brilliant improvisation knowledge unfortunately not in every song.

The evening is a little bit too laid back, and sounds like “I do have majestic fireworks for you, but I am not going to use them all tonight”.

The concert ends with a Ray Charles’s classic; probably the ticket’s price has been a little bit too demanding, whereas it expects to enjoy more songs, more solos, probably less talk and a baby grand on the stage.
