Piano
The Floris Kappeyne Trio was set up in 2015 by the pianist. The trio consisting of separate Prinses Christina Concours winners (2012) met in their early teenage years when the pianist invited Tijs Klaassen and Wouter Kühne to play a gig after seeing them on Youtube. During the last year, the trio has worked on achieving an authentic concept by combining the classic sound of the McCoy Tyner trio from the sixties with Senegalese sabar rhythms and abstraction from modern classical music. The result can be heard on their debut-album “Interchange”, which was released in June 2017 on Challenge Records International. In 2018, the trio will bring new repertoire to the concerts featuring modern classical compositions in the form of 12 preludes, featuring improvisational elements in an out-of-ordinary fashion, in an attempt to question the difference between classical and jazz music in the contemporary music world. On August 3rd the Floris Kappeyne Trio will be joined by freshly graduated singer Isla Van Hout for an evening of classic jazz standards. “Isla brings a highly energetic performance together with great skill in vocal technique and a talent for storytelling.” Read more
