Kobi & Hyuna Piano Duo

  • Michiko Rehearsal Studios 149 West 46th Street New York, NY, 10036 United States (map)

This special show is an exciting meeting point between two NYC-based pianist-composers: Kobi Arad and Hyuna Park.

Wurlitzer, piano, nord and other keyboard instruments shall be spread on the stage like toys in a candy shop. The idea of 'Anchor Lines'
- coined by Kobi Arad - presents melodic themes which unravel through improvisation towards full scale compositions.

The creative impulse of both Arad and Park is going to dominate the astonishing hour of this show - filled with improvisation, soulfulness, joy, love for music and fun.

Kobi Arad (Grammy Awards-Claes Nobel Official Producer, Stevie Wonder Collaborator) is a world-class New Music and Jazz pianist-composer-improviser. He is the first musician to have received his Doctorate in Third Stream music, which blends Jazz and Modern Classical. A member of the Grammy Awards’ voting team, he currently has about 30 self-titled CD's on Amazon.

Since she moved from South Korea to New York in 2011, Hyuna Park has been busy performing and recording in and around New York City, in Europe, and in Asia. She has worked with Lonnie Plaxico, Andy McKee, Vincent Herring, Kathryn Farmer, Amadis Dunkel, Daniel Fricker, Luis Bonilla, Michael Mossman,Vince Cherico, and the John Yao big band, as well as with her own trio and septet.
