Groundbreaking contemporary jazz composers and pianists, Nikki Yeoh and Zoe Rahman will have you at the edge of your seat as they share their talents across two grand pianos. Featuring specially arranged music from their outstanding solo piano records Solo Gemini and Dreamland, this pair will challenge the boundaries of piano playing in a hugely entertaining way.
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.
Since her emergence on the British jazz scene in the mid 90s, pianist Nikki Yeoh has proved to be an improviser, composer and all-round adventurer who has continually sought to broaden her musical horizons.
