At last, Elvis Costello is stepping on CCM’s (Macau Cultural Centre) stage! The legendary musician and performer is visiting Macau for an intimate display of musical brilliance, to reveal why he has been considered one of the most innovative, influential and best songwriters ever. In this concert, the star musician brings us a lyrical merge of guitar and piano chords to perfectly match his entertaining chemistry.
Widely known for his unmistakable interpretation of She (soundtrack to “Notting Hill” movie, back in 1999), Costello shot to stardom two decades earlier, thrust by the thrill of new wave and punk movements. His creative restlessness would soon send him rushing through a wide spectrum of pop hits and complex orchestral arrangements. An eclectic genius drive took him to acclaimed partnerships with music giants, from Paul McCartney and Tony Bennett, to trumpet legend Chet Baker or country music icon Johnny Cash. Inspired by a myriad of different genres, he kept pushing boundaries as he stepped into the classical and jazz music sphere with collaborations ranging from the Brodsky Quartet to the Mingus Orchestra or Swedish mezzo soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. After collecting prestigious awards, from the Grammys to the BAFTAs, Rolling Stone Magazine named him in 2004, one of the 100 greatest artists of all time!
