Double breath? Harmonica is the only instrument that requires a man to breathe in order to make sound, both inhale and exhale: we breathe by making music and breathe through music. Double breath synthesizes the two and presents a magical blend of sounds, expresses compassion and team spirit of musicians playing the music.
“Some instruments have earned recognition and a special place in the history of specific musical genres due to the dedication of great musicians. One of them was Toots Thielemans, who earned recognition for the harmonica in jazz during the fifty years of his international career. I discovered and started playing the harmonica thanks to Thielemans,” says Gianluca Littera, a renowned musician. After formal musical education, he completely focused on playing the harmonica and became one of few soloists in the world playing classical and jazz music on the instrument. He is a regular guest of international musical events and collaborates with many of the world’s top chamber and symphony orchestras: Kremerata Baltica and Gidon Kremer, Santa Ceccilia Orchestra, Tonkünstler-Orchester Niederösterreich, Orquesta Sinfónica de Bilbao, Lithuanian National Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo etc. He has also cooperated with the Academy Award winning composer Ennio Morricone. In the world of jazz, Gianluca has collaborated with top artist such as Ute Lemper, Hector Infanzon, Eugenio Toussaint Trio, Ivan Linse...
He and Stefan Profeto, Fabio Gorliera and Mattia Barbieri form the Double Breath Jazz Quartet and go on numerous European and world tours, as well as appear in numerous festivals.Gianluca’ harmonica and Stefan's double bass blend together and seem to be amused by their differences: the sharp sound of the harmonica, the small size of the instrument and its great mobility versus the large dimensions of the double bass seem to symbolize two distant worlds. The two are perfectly in-sync with the sound of Fabio’spiano and the rhythm of Mattia’s drum. Double breath brings different musical genres together, ranging from Fauré's compositions and music after the Armenian Alan Hovhaness’s taste to tango and Latin music. Double breath exudes nostalgia, but also energy filled with color and the sounds of the Mediterranean.
