Come along and relax over lunchtime while you listen to Canterbury-based pianist Kris Baines perform solo piano compositions from his brand new album "Melodies & Interludes, Vol. 2". In the style of contemporary classical, Kris specialises in emotive, reflective, uplifting and inspiring solo piano music (think "Yurima, 'River Flows in You').
You may remember Kris as the pianist in the nationally featured Anzac Tribute video 'God Defend NZ" - which gained over 40k views on Facebook and was featured on Prime-Time TV. Here are some comments from industry reviews of the album so far...
"This is one incredible album!" - K Parsons, MainlyPiano.com
"...a simply perfect interpretation of life, in one magical musical compilation" - Steve Sheppard, One World Music Radio
"...that’s what really makes Kris’s keyboard work stand out from all the rest… an ability (that few players have) to convey feelings most pleasantly!...one of the most expressive pianists you will ever listen to...simply beautiful" -D Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews
Kris can be heard on Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, & Amazon. Check out his music online for a taste of what you’ll get to hear at the concert. There will also be a special guest, Kris' daughter Holly who will perform her new solo piano single.
