About

Melodiya presents Opera, Jazz, Blues performed by Hibla Gerzmava and the Daniel Kramer Trio. The programme includes rousing and lyrical jazz improvisations, unexpected arrangements and fantasias on the pieces of classical, jazz and popular music composers. The crossover is a synthesis of very different musical styles. Hibla and the Daniel Kramer Trio were inspired to create a jazz/classical experiment a few years ago, but have had to wait to realise their ambition. It took more than a year to select the repertoire, discuss details and make arrangements. The result is a programme built on contrasts. There is Schubertís Ave Maria and an unusual arrangement of Mozartís Alleluia, Glinkaís Inesilia in a completely different guise, and the jazz hit Fly Me to the Moon. Combining classical depth and aesthetics with jazz harmonies and rhythms, an operatic voice with a swinging trio is not an easy task to accomplish, but Hibla Gerzmava and the Daniel Kramer Trio come through with flying colours.
