Composer and Pianist Gregg Kallor to Appear on WWFM's CADENZA, 6/22
Gregg Kallor, David Osenberg, Cadenza, WWFM
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.
