「從Chi的演奏中，我發現了滿有女性獨特味道的新大陸！她的柔情與幼細，與她不太aggreesive而偏慢的approach令我感動... 其實很少主流男性音樂人會這樣彈的。」香港著名音樂人- 鍾一諾 11/2019
充滿國際色彩的 CHI 爵士樂四重奏由鋼琴家邵天慈（香港/澳門）於鹿特丹組成，樂隊成員包括半音階口琴家Armand van Wijck（荷蘭）、鼓手Django Buiting （荷蘭）及低音大提琴手 Yiannis Vagianos（ 希臘）。樂隊的演奏風格充滿着振奮人心的現代爵士樂節奏，同時亦散發着細緻情感及優美旋律，感覺猶如置身於大城市中欣賞美麗的晚霞。
邵天慈於紐約曼克頓音樂學院取得古典鋼琴演奏碩士學位，在學期間對電影配樂及爵士樂感到濃厚興趣。畢業後回港澳工作，但她對爵士樂的熱愛最後帶領她到了荷蘭鹿特丹音樂學院。邵天慈的成長背景、在不同國家生活的體會以及穩固的古典音樂基礎都是她原創作品的靈感來源。 CHI 爵士樂四重奏期待和大家分享一個超越風格定義及充滿幻想的音樂旅程。
CHI Quartet is an international piano quartet based in Rotterdam. Formed by Macau/HK pianist SIU, Tin-Chi, Greek bassist Yiannis Vagianos, Dutch chromatic harmonica player Armand van Wijck and drummer Django Buiting.
Dreamy piano ostinatos, delicate drum grooves in odd meters, the soothing timbres of double bass and chromatic harmonica: this is the vibrant and atmospheric sound of the Rotterdam based CHI Quartet. It all makes you feel as if you’re traveling through a large city during a peaceful sunset, which traces back to the roots of pianist Siu Tin Chi.
Chi was born and raised in Hong Kong and Macau. She graduated in classical music at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music in New York, where she developed a special interest in jazz and film scores. Afterward, she continued to explore jazz, which led her to the conservatory of Rotterdam. The extended living in different metropolises with mixed cultures, the nature that surrounds Hong Kong and her classical background can be evidently heard in her modern compositions.
