Completion of New Orleans tribute work
Cape Cod, MA
With the completion of "Taffeta Skirts," Cacioppo also completes his two-piano suite STORIES FROM THE 7TH WARD, a tribute to New Orleans. Written for the Orpheus Duo, the half-hour-long work consists of four pieces variously inspired by family stories told by Althea Waites -- a member of the Duo, and a New Orleans native -- and by musical idioms of the city, especially Dixieland and the music of Cacioppo's late distant relative, trumpeter, bandleader and broadcaster Tony Almerico. The movements are:
I - The Valiant Crab
II - Taffeta Skirts
III - Parisian Room Waltz
IV - Saints Alive!
See the composer's blog for the associated stories!

Completion of "Saints Alive!"
Cape Cod, MA
Cacioppo completes another in his 2 piano "Stories from the 9th Ward." This one is entitled SAINTS ALIVE! and captures a vision related to him by Althea Waites of her mother after she died going up to see God, and having a serious talk with him about the troubles on planet earth and what he should be doing about them. Fantastic story. Her Mom was a big fan of "When the Saints go Marching In," and this melody serves as the basis of this new composition.
