Bruce Wolosoff - Memento takes the listener on a journey imbued by various genres. Throughout, Wolosoff opens his heart. His inner voice is his guide, and all his own.

Pianist-composer Bruce Wolosoff is a musical alchemist, organically mixing his multiple experiences in the worlds of jazz, rock, blues and classical music. His new solo album, Memento, melds the evolution of Wolosoff’s performance and compositional style into a genre that is all his own and true to himself. Wolosoff is a “formidable pianist” (Gramophone) who can tackle the great romantics like Busoni and Liszt. He can improvise like Bach and Beethoven as well as today’s jazz greats. His contemporary compositions are informed by his past whilst imbued with his current belief in “the primacy of lyricism and melody.”

With its baroque figuration and bittersweet harmonies, Memento seems to glance towards the music of Astor Piazzolla (the bandoneón- playing composer of tango nuevo who was a stylistic polyglot like Wolosoff). Is it the work’s emotional ambiguities that give it such an evocatively melancholy cinematic character?
