Nikki Yeoh and Zoe Rahman are ground-breaking contemporary composers, both of whom have released outstanding solo piano albums. So what better way to celebrate women in music as part of Venus Unwrapped at Kings Place than to share their talents across two Steinway concert grand pianos? This evening’s concert will feature specially arranged music from Nikki Yeoh’s Solo Gemini and Zoe Rahman’s Dreamland album.
‘Nikki Yeoh is a creative free spirit who, although deeply rooted in the language of improvisation, is open to a range of music that leans as much to populism as it does high art.’ Kevin Le Gendre
‘Zoe Rahman is one of the brightest stars on the contemporary jazz scene. A vibrant and highly individual pianist and composer, her style is deeply rooted in jazz yet it reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste.’ Melting Vinyl
