HUW WARREN SOLO – The Art of Improvisation
“one of the UK’s truly independent spirits” – The Guardian
Welsh pianist and composer Huw Warren has achieved an international reputation for innovative projects and collaborations over a twenty five year career. Equally at home crossing the often exclusive worlds of Jazz, Classical and World music, he combines a beautiful delicate touch with a deeply lyrical musicality. His music is broadcast frequently on BBC Radio 3 and he performed live on the 10th anniversary programme of the flagship cross genre show, Late Junction
The Art of Improvisation is a solo concert with a difference. Warren fuses improvisations based on Dowland, Bach and Chopin and folk music with music from Brazil and South Africa, original compositions, and the Great American Songbook. Dazzling virtuosity and humour are combined with moments of deep emotion; all presented in a surprisingly approachable way. What makes The Art of Improvisation particularly unique is the ease in which Warren draws the audience into his various musical worlds with an informative yet informal, entertaining presentation. This is a programme that works equally well for all music lovers.
Huw Warren is currently Artist in Residence at Brecon Jazz festival, a recording artist for ECM with Quercus (with June Tabor and Iain Ballamy) and will release a new solo piano recording in early 2016.
