A night of jazz music

    A CHINESE band headed by saxophonist Li Gaoyang and a string quintet from Poland will stage a night of jazz music this Thursday night at Shenzhen Children’s Palace.

    An event of the ongoing Shenzhen Belt and Road music season, its program covers a four-part suite Li’s band newly composed for the occasion as well as previous original works like “The Great Wall” and “Jazz Yangko.”

    VOLOSI will perform tracks from their new album “Normadism” like “Grey Hour” and “Crawler” as well as some of their older works.

    A graduate of the Royal College of Music, Stockholm, Li is one of the top contemporary Chinese saxophonists. The Beijinger is also devoted to saxophone education and composes original music.

    Calling Sonny Rollins his biggest influence on the saxophone so far, Li has received instruction from the maestro himself as well as from other masters such as Bob Cranshaw, Sammy Figueroa and Peter Erskine. He is a winner of the prestigious Chinese Music Awards. Starting his own band at 14, the present band consists of drummer Adam Nussbaum from the United States, Danish pianist Carl Winther, double bass player Hu Hao and guitarist Chen Hongwei apart from Li himself.

    Though unfamiliar to the local audience, VOLOSI from Poland has been well received by critics and audiences in Europe. With virtuosity, they create a magical blend of classic and traditional Carpathian folk music.

    Formed by highlanders of the Silesian Beskid mountains and classically trained musicians, the string quintet has great strengths in improvisation, combining genres of music that would seem too distinct to be fused.

    In their interpretation, the music of the Carpathians is modern and full of life, but does not break its connection with tradition.

    In 2011, they won the Grand Prix Svetozar Stracina for best piece in the “world music” category in Europe, in the contest organized by the European Broadcasting Union.

    In 2012 their first album entered the special World Charts Europe Top 20 selection. Their music has won over rock festival audiences as well as concert hall attendants and world music lovers.

    Time: 8 p.m., April 6 Tickets: 80-680 yuan

    Venue: Shenzhen Children’s Palace, 2002 Fuzhong Road 1, Futian District (福田区福中一路2002号)

    Metro: Line 3 or 4, Children’s Palace Station (少年宫站), Exit D
