    Jurmala Jazz. LINDA OH

    Performers:
    Linda Oh’s Quartet:
    Linda May Han Oh (contrabass)
    Will Vinson (saxophone)
    Matthew Stevens (guitar)
    Eric Doob (drums)

     

    Born in Malaysia, raised in Perth, Western Australia, Linda Oh started playing piano and bassoon at an early age, while at the age of fifteen, she got carried away with the electric bass, playing jazz in various high-school bands. Linda studied at The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), which she graduated with excellence.


    She has thrived in her career as a musician, receiving countless awards and scholarships, including the ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Award and Bell Award as the New Artist of the Year.


    After acquiring her master's degree at the Manhattan School of Music in 2008, she became a teacher and still continues to share her knowledge with young students by speaking at various jazz-themed video conference master classes at US high-schools, as well as participating in innovative projects, such as the creation of a series of lectures for the next iPad and iPhone BassGuru app.


    She continues to develop her creativity by composing music for various ensembles and short-films, as well as participating in international film-composer workshops. One of Linda’s masterpieces is the music she composed for the movie “A Good Egg” by Sabrina McCormick, which was presented at the New York Short Film Festival.


    Music is a big part of Linda’s life, and she is not wasting her time. Aside from the previously mentioned projects, Linda has recorded several albums. Already with her first debut album "Entry" in 2009, she introduced herself with a blast, ending up in the Artforum magazine as one of the top 10 albums for the American jazz musician Vijay Iyer.


    After several other albums, her latest - the 2017 release of "Walk Against Wind" - received the approval of critics and was featured on the 2017 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll. This album also featured Matthew Stevens with his virtuoso guitar play, which you will be able to enjoy on the Dzintari Concert Hall stage together with Linda Oh!

    Jubilee Concert of Raimonds Ozols

    Birthday concert of Raimonds Ozols

    Performers: Raimonds Ozols (violin), Mārcis Auziņš (guitar), Raimonds Macats (piano)


    For his birthday, Raimonds Ozols and friends offer a concert programme with special chamber versions by composers of different ages - Niccolò Paganini and Astor Piazzolla. The idea of the concert has been rising for a long time, inspired by a library of musical heritage, the pieces of which have not been heard so often in Latvia.


    Niccolò Paganini's work relates to virtuoso violin play, but the composer has also created marvellous pieces for romantic chamber music: Duetto Amoroso, Grand sonata and Tercetto for violin, guitar and bass, which will be played in this concert. Each piece has its own story of origin, most often related to an intimate moment in the composer's life, echoed in the feelings or events of the hero of this concert. The first part of the concert is promised to be a radiance of love, revealing Paganini's pretentious brilliance and pompous character, as well as the humble and deep romance of love.


    Also in the work of Astor Piazzolla, alongside the often-played passionate Argentinian tango, there are many unheard pieces. The pieces related to the deepest emotional experiences of Piazzolla, will be the most surprising ones.


    The concert programme has been selected for the taste of a wide range audience, and the performers promise emotional enjoyment for everyone, because content creation and playing music is a passion for the musicians themselves. And, at the moment, all signs show that the concert will be very special!
    See you soon at Dzintari Concert Hall!
