Classics with a Jazzy Touch
Discover two resident keyboard masters of Canada, Matt Herskowitz and John Roney. Together they form PIANO CAMELEONS a duo that performs unique and enthralling concerts whose growing popularity at home is destined to make its mark on the international scene.
PIANO CAMELEONS is a surefire crowd pleaser act that will impress audiences of wide-ranging tastes and interests. A team unlike any other, this pair tackles some of the most beloved classical piano masterpieces in the spirit of the great interpreters, enhancing their renditions with improvised variations worthy of the best jazz players. Blessed with total technical command, each musician is capable of remarkable keyboard prowess while expressing himself in a deeply musical way. Every concert is like an emotional roller coaster that can soar from quiet hushes to ecstatic peaks of intensity in one fell swoop. From the opening downbeat to the show stopping finale, these partners are in total synch with each other, sometimes in perfect harmony, elsewhere testing their wits to surprise both themselves and their listeners. More than a delight for the ears, their live performances are a visual treat in the very way they exchange glances, cueing in each new twist with a twinkle in the eye. No one will be left indifferent by the musical concept of this duo, nor by the highwire act they pull off every time, and one always accomplished in the name of music.
“PIANO CAMELEONS have developed a unique and sensational new sound and style. They are the link joining classical music and jazz. This torch is passing into good hands.”
Oliver Jones, pianist and mentor
