Bassist and composer Edgar Meyer
"This year is the 50th anniversary of Edith Piaf's death. She died on October 10, 1963. Piaf was a great and much loved performer, but in her personal life she saw much unhappiness and tragedy. Last weekend, as part of Le French May, Clotilde Courau gave us an insight into her turbulent love life with a reading of exclusive love letters written by Edith Piaf six months after the death of her great love Marcel Cerdan"--RTHK web site.
"Bassist and composer Edgar Meyer spans many genres of music. His styles include classical, bluegrass, country and western, and jazz. He's worked as a session musician in Nashville, and with an assortment of chamber groups, collaborating with such people as Joshua Bell, Yo-Yo Ma, Zakir Hussain, James Taylor, violinist Mark O'Connor, and Alison Krauss. On his own 2006 album he showed even greater musical versatility, playing every instrument including the piano, double bass, guitar, banjo, viola da gamba, mandolin and dobro. He's been in Hong Kong over the past two weeks to collaborate on the Intimacy of Creativity series of music events. Ben Pelletier talked to him before his concert last Sunday"--RTHK web site.
