On Friday October, 7 the African Regent Hotel in Accra, by kind courtesy of Loud & Clear Productions, will resound with the musical stylings of Russian composer Igor Stravinsky.  With jazz improvisation and composition performed by international pianist, Kelvin Sholar, the event will explore musical paths that converge at the crossroads of Jazz and classical music, when Charlie Parker meets Igor Stravinsky.

“I’ll never forget the day I first consciously heard Igor Stravinsky. I was eighteen years old, in my college music theory class, in the fall of 1991. My instructor said something about him being revolutionary and important and then he simply pushed play on the cd player. My life has not been the same since! What I learned that day is one of the most powerful lessons I’ve ever learned in my musical career: music is only limited by the imagination of the composer, performer and audience,” Kelvin Sholar comments.

“My intention in reworking these ballets is to reveal the common language between what they represent to me and what I love about modern times, technology and music. In particular, I attempted to introduce the most powerful ideals of Jazz, like the swing rhythm, the blues harmony and the language of Jazz improvisation, to the non-recursive melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic structures of Stravinsky‘s ballets.”

It would be a classic experience of good music and fine cuisine, as the chefs of the African Regent Hotel serve up a menu fit for the occasion. Tickets are available at the Hotel
