Virtuosic pianist/composer reveals a vivid, poignant new suite for

piano and string quartet inspired by the emotional toll of the pandemic 

Watch Hiromi perform “11:49PM” The Piano Quintet (Live from Blue Note Tokyo) HERE

 

For Immediate Release – Ever since the 2003 release of her debut Telarc CD, Another Mind, Hiromi has electrified audiences and critics east and west with a creative energy that encompasses and eclipses the boundaries of jazz, classical and pop parameters, taking improvisation and composition to new heights of complexity and sophistication. On her latest album, Silver Lining Suite, Hiromi further exemplifies her virtuosic hybridity and emotional range, finding strength and hope amidst the emotional turmoil of the Covid pandemic.

Due out October 8, 2021 via Telarc (with 2-LP release set for February 18, 2022), Silver Lining Suite pairs Hiromi’s virtuosic and emotive piano with a string quartet assembled by violinist Tatsuo Nishie, concertmaster of the New Japan Philharmonic. The results blur the lines between classical music and jazz, crafting a vibrant hybrid possessed of the fervent, rock-inspired energy and cinematic beauty that Hiromi has always instilled in her music.

As the pianist says, “I think there are only two genres: the genre which moves my heart and the genre that doesn’t. I’m just playing the music which moves my heart.”

Critical acclaim for Silver Lining Suite:

“Piano firebrand Hiromi has responded to the pandemic with creative punches — look no further than her exuberant performance at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics. Her resilience can also be found on Silver Lining Suite, featuring a string quartet with jazz chops. The resulting ensemble, which she calls The Piano Quintet, is her vessel — a soaring starship that propels her piano heroics into the stratosphere. Titles such as ‘Isolation’ and ‘Uncertainty’ may hint toward a dismal headspace, but these compositions are joyous and ebullient, nodding at times towards Erroll Garner.” WBGO.org Fall Preview 2021

“Unusual times call for unusual music.” – JazzTimes

“From introspection into our world’s plight to exhilaration, this record covered the gamut. Moreover, in addition to the upper echelon musicianship, Hiromi’s always superlative compositional skills reached a new pinnacle.” ****1/2 All About Jazz
