Composer and Pianist Gregg Kallor to Appear on WWFM's CADENZA, 6/22
Hear composer/pianist Gregg Kallor in conversation with host David Osenberg on WWFM's "Cadenza," Saturday, June 22, at 11 p.m. on 88.9 HD2 in New York City or online at www.wwfm.org.
Composer and pianist Gregg Kallor, a recipient of the Aaron Copland Award for composition, is an artist who eloquently "speaks" the musical languages of both classical and jazz. His latest recording A Single Noon, a tableau of life in New York City, told through a combination of composed music and improvisation was released in April 2013.
Kallor's first album, There's a Rhythm, features his jazz trio with bassist Chris Van Voorst Van Beest and drummer Kendrick Scott. "Kallor can carry a poetic mood right to the edge of sorrow, always sounding lyrical and moving" (The Hartford Courant). His second album, Exhilaration, features his song-settings of poems by Emily Dickinson, William Butler Yeats, Christina Rossetti and Herschel Garfein sung by mezzo-soprano Adriana Zabala.
