Chilly Gonzales, Canadian pianist and entertainer, returns with his much anticipated follow-up to Solo Piano II: "Chambers"

Since the release of Solo Piano II, Chilly Gonzales composed the best-selling book of easy piano pieces Re-Introduction Etudes, produced and released Octave Minds, the piano-meets-electronica album with Boys Noize and, most importantly, devoted himself to finding a modern take on chamber music. The result is "Chambers", an album for piano and string quartet (and a few surprises along the way). Inspired by the deepening relationship with Hamburg's Kaiser Quartett, the album re-imagines Romantic-era chamber music as today's addictive pop. Gestures from rap, ambient, easy listening and the avant-garde co- exist as always in Chilly Gonzales’ musical universe - this time with strings attached.

Known equally for his intimate piano touch as for his showmanship, "Gonzo" aims to be a man of his time, approaching the piano with classical and jazz training but with the attitude of a rapper. Chilly Gonzales holds the Guinness world record for the longest solo concert at over 27 hours. 

Deluxe LP contains a limited edition poster.
