If you have an open mind and want cutting-edge orchestral string music with a touch of jazz and improvised violin playing plus a composition of layered colours, deep swirling sounds and an emotional ride into the future, you ‘have’ to listen to composer, conductor and violinist Jason Kao Hwang/ Spontaneous River - Symphony of Souls. This is a young, modern and fresh look at what at one stage might have been referred to as Third Stream. Not for the faint-hearted.
