© pd - Adrian Frey


Mit: Peggy Chew, vocals; Adrian Frey, Fender Rhodes; Featured Guest: Jason Kao Hwang, violin, viola

Adrian Frey ist Jazz-Pianist und sehr aktiv im Dienste der Musik. Über ein Projekt mit jungen Musikern sprachen wir bereits mit ihm…

Jetzt geht es nach New York:

Sonic Calligraphy, a jazz duo from Zurich, Switzerland with Chinese American vocalist Peggy Chew and Swiss pianist, Adrian Frey will play in trio with composer, violinist Jason Kao Hwang , a veteran of the NY jazz scene and recently listed as a “rising star for violin” in the “2014 Downbeat Critic’s Poll”.

They will create a colorful and fascinating soundscape with folk melodies from China, poetry improvisations from the Tang dynasty and beyond, jazz standards, and songs from the pianist sung with the singer’s lyrics.

Since 2001, Sonic Calligraphy has played throughout Switzerland as well as several tours in China, Hong Kong, and the US. They have released two CDs “Sonic Calligraphy” and “Sonic Calligraphy, The Flow of Things.” Festival appearances include: JZ Shanghai Music Festival, Culturescapes Festival , Leung Ping-Kwan Poetry Retrospective in Hong Kong, and the Altrisuoni Jazz Festival.
