Inner Passion

Posted on in Art + Soul by Lloyd Barde

Peter Kater & Tina Guo

Grammy-nominated pianist Peter Kater and world-class cellist Tina Guo have pooled their extensive talents to collaborate on one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year, Inner Passion. Prepare to be dazzled, soothed, inspired, and transported, with pure music and emotion filling the space. A virtuoso pianist and a dazzling cellist playing together for the first time—no rehearsal, no score—just music and emotion.

Inner Passion, Peter Kater & Tina Guo

Peter Kater has 11 Grammy nominations, and his recent Love CD is a likely winner for this year’s awards. He has sold over 2.5 million albums, with more than 60 albums released over the past 30 years. His recordings with R. Carlos Nakai and soundtrack scores for Civil War: The Untold Story, How the West Was Lost, and 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama have received great acclaim. In person, Peter is a marvel to behold, having navigated and traversed the musical worlds of New Age, contemporary instrumental, and jazz motifs with ease and grace—and major talent.

Tina Guo has performed on the world’s great stages as featured classical cellist and is featured on scores for hundreds of major films (Sherlock Holmes, Batman vs. Superman, Abduction, Clash of Titans, Iron Man 2, and countless others), as well as TV series and blockbuster videogames. Tina is touring in 2016 with the Hans Zimmer Live Arena Tour, at Carnegie Hall with Joe Bonamassa, and at solo concerto performances with symphonies worldwide. Tina is a force to reckon with, down to earth, and at home in literally any idiom, whether strictly classical, blues/pop stadium events, the elusive world of blockbuster soundtracks, or wildly shredding her cellos with viral raveup videos.

Join these two artists on March 12 at the TMS Performing Arts Center in San Rafael for a CD release concert celebrating this exquisite debut. •
