 PROGRAM
Fauré: Piano Quintet No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 89
Medtner: Piano Quintet in C Major, Op. posth.

Named after Hong Kong's endemic Romer's Tree Frog, the Romer String Quartet is a genuinely local ensemble formed by musicians all born and raised in Hong Kong. The quartet has been recognised locally and abroad as one of the most active string quartets in town since its debut in 2013.

Romer String Quartet has given recitals at the Shanghai Concert Hall, Sabah Art Gallery in Malaysia, Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, The University of Macau, Hong Kong City Hall, Hong Kong Museum of Art, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Baptist University and the HKUST Center for the Arts. It was featured in the 42nd Hong Kong Arts Festival to perform at the ExxonMobil Vision Series production 'Images of Hong Kong', Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Services Department's 'Our Music Talents Series', Hong Kong Composers' Guild's 'Musicarama 2013' and 'Musicarama 2014', Hong Kong Freespace Fest, and Kota Kinabalu String Music Festival in Malaysia. It has also been invited to record for Radio Television Hong Kong programmes such as 'Match-Making Concerts' and 'The Works'.

Romer frequently collaborates with composers and multimedia artists. It has given world-premieres of many newly commissioned works, and as a part of a multimedia project titled 'Muted Situations' it has performed in a pre-recorded video, which was featured in the Asia Triennial Manchester in UK and the Hong Kong New Vision Arts Festival.

Romer String Quartet is dedicated to promoting chamber music to the younger generation in Hong Kong and Asia. As teaching artists, Romer String Quartet was the Ensemble-in-Residence of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2014-15, other previous residencies included the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble's 'Modern Academy' and the Hong Kong Children's Symphony Orchestra. It has given masterclasses and workshops at the Hong Kong Institute of Education, Macao Polytechnic Institute and the Kota Kinabalu String Music Festival. The quartet was invited as jury member and guest performer at the Hong Kong 'New Generation 2014 Concert' composition competition. It also serves the community in partnership with the Hong Kong Playground Association, regularly providing free educational workshops and concerts to children.

Bill Holman, guest artist

Born Willis Leonard Holman on May 21, 1927 in Olive, California, near Santa Ana, Bill Holman took up clarinet in junior high school and tenor saxophone in high school by which time he was leading his own band. After serving in the Navy and studying engineering, he decided in the late '40s that he wanted to write big band music and studied for a while at the Westlake College of Music in Los Angeles.

In 1949 he played with the Ike Carpenter Band. In1951 he was writing for Charlie Barnet, and in 1952 he began his association with Stan Kenton, for whom he wrote and played for many years. During the '50s, he was also active in the West Coast jazz movement, playing in small bands led by Shorty Rogers and Shelly Manne, and co-leading a quintet with Mel Lewis in 1958.

In the 60s, he widened his writing associations, and eventually contributed pieces to libraries and recordings of bands led by Louie Bellson, Count Basie, Terry Gibbs, Woody Herman, Bob Brookmeyer, Buddy Rich, Gerry Mulligan, Doc Severinsen and others. He has also written for such singers as Natalie Cole (her Grammy winning “Unforgettable” album, among others,) Tony Bennett, Carmen MacRae, Mel Tormé, Woody Herman, Anita O'Day, Sarah Vaughn, June Christy and the Fifth Dimension. His arrangement of “Take The 'A” Train” for Severinsen's “Tonight Show Orchestra” earned Holman a Best Instrumental Grammy in 1987.

 

Holman started The Bill Holman Band in 1975. The band’s early recordings, all for JVC, include “The Bill Holman Band” (1988), “A View From The Side” (1995), for which Holman won a Best Instrumental Composition Grammy for the title track, and “Brilliant Corners: The Music of Thelonious Monk” (1997). This recording, certainly one of Holman's finest, celebrates both Monk and Holman and will, no doubt, renew excitement in fans about the possibilities to be found in the big band genre. The band’s recent recordings include “The Bill Holman Band Live” (2005) and “Hommage” (2007), both for Jazzed Media. An original work, Echoes of Aranjuez, was commissioned by the HR Big Band in Frankfurt, Germany, and recorded for hr-musik.de/Jazz.

Since 1980, Holman has been increasingly active in Europe, writing, conducting and playing lengthy works for the WDR Big Band in Cologne, Germany, and the Metropole Orchestra in Holland, featuring such soloists as Phil Woods, Sal Nistico and Lee Konitz.
