The Floris Kappeyne Trio was set up in 2015 by the pianist. The trio consisting of separate Prinses Christina Concours winners (2012) met in their early teenage years when the pianist invited Tijs and Wouter to play a gig after seeing them on Youtube, and has continued to play ever since. During the last year, the trio has worked on achieving an authentic concept by combining the classic sound of the McCoy Tyner trio from the sixties with Senegalese sabar rhythms and abstraction from modern classical music. The result can be heard on their debut-album “Interchange”, which was released in June 2017 on Challenge Records International. In 2018, the trio will bring new repertoire to the concerts featuring modern classical compositions in the form of preludes, featuring improvisational elements in an out-of-ordinary fashion, in an attempt to question the difference between classical and jazz music in the contemporary music world.
