Showcase Recital - Works of Fred Katz

Featuring Conservatory of Music faculty and students in the world premiere of Journeying II and III by composer, pianist and cellist Fred Katz.  These two new works complete Katz's Journeying trilogy, of which the first movement (Journeying I) was given a world premiere by Conservatory faculty and students in October 2012.  All three movements will be presented in this concert.

About Fred Katz:
Always an enigma, even to his friends, musical peers and colleagues, Fred Katz at almost 90 years old, continues to confound the music business with his capacity to innovate and his seemingly unique ability to take his music to even wider audiences, well over fifty years since he crossed that imaginary line between the ‘straight’ player and the jazzman.

The man, whose work with the Chico Hamilton Quintet in the 1950’s brought him particular attention, as did his writing and appearance in the award winning Tony Curtis and Burt Lancaster movie, ‘Sweet Smell of Success’, is still composing for a generation of musicians far removed from the early days of modern jazz.

Being persuaded out of a happy retirement in Orange County, California, by Book of Dreams Music’s chief executive Harry Paton Evans, the eloquent and sometimes mystic Mr. Katz accepted the challenge to write some new jazz and classical material for an emerging generation of talented musicians, at present working their way through music academies and colleges.
