Pacora Trio (B-stage)


Stanislav Palúch
Marcel Comendant
Róbert Ragan

The set-up of three experienced musicians (Palúch, Comendant and Ragan) has existed since 2004. The music they make is based on interfacing of jazz and folkore music (Slovak and Moldavian), coloured by elements of jazz music. The repertoire of the trio includes arrangements of jazz standards and their original compositions.

The trio recorded its first CD “Pacora Trio” in 2005 in Hevhetia publishing house. Shortly after the release, the CD received a positive response both at home and abroad (a 4-star rating in the prestigious BBC Music Magazine – June 2006). Soon, Pacora started to perform abroad - in top concert venues of jazz and worldmusic (the Czech Republic, Austria, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Rome, Greece, Poland, Denmark).

In 2007 the trio was invited by the director of Brno Philharmonic Orchestra to perform the compositions of Pacora in arrangements for orchestra. It has been a success and it is regularly performed with prominent orchestras (Slovak Philharmonic, Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, Zlín Philharmonic, Bratislava Chamber Soloists and Slovak Sinfonietta). Pacora has made recordings for Czech and Slovak TV and radio, Austrian ORF and for films. New album called "Fugit Hora" was releasd in 2012..
