Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The ultimate cross-over composer, Hayden Wayne has composed in all idioms: jazz, rock and classical and often blends the three in a single piece. He's best known for his unique series of Symphonies with subtitles like Heavy Metal, Reggae and Funk. During the past few months we've been issuing his String Quartets, part of a series entitled Nuzerov, named after a particularly favored part of the Czech Republic. The Five Dances, in particular, are a delightful blend of classical and pop dance forms, bringing a unique sound to the familiar combination of cello and piano. Of the Piano Quintet, Wayne writes, "(This) was the first composition I wrote after my father's death. It's an homage to the era in which he flourished as a musician; the romantically-charged 1930s and 1940s, with their Latin influences, and jazz and big bands. He continually performed at the piano until two weeks before his death at 83. His love of music, which he so generously shared with me, was reflected in the eclecticism resulting from thousands of different "tunes" he knew form all nationalities."
