ACCLAIM FOR THE TELL-TALE HEART:
ABOUT GREGG KALLOR:
Gregg Kallor is a composer and pianist whose music fuses the classical and jazz traditions he loves into a new, deeply personal language. The New York Times writes: “At home in both jazz and classical forms, [Kallor] writes music of unaffected emotional directness. Leavened with flashes of oddball humor, his works succeed in drawing in the listener – not as consumer or worshipful celebrant, but in a spirit of easygoing camaraderie.”
Kallor joined an all-star roster of musicians, including Joyce DiDonato, Anthony Dean Griffey, Isabel Leonard, Susanna Phillips, Yo-Yo Ma, Anthony McGill, actors Sharon Stone and Ansel Elgort, and many more, for An AIDS Quilt Songbook: Sing for Hope. Kallor recorded two songs for the album, with Melody Moore – “One Child,” which Kallor composed for this project – and Matthew Polezani. All profits from the sale of this album will go to amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.
