The Music Of Cole Porter Without Words (2020)

Porter

Vov Dylan, Glenn Amer

Pianist Glenn Amer and I have recorded a special new album celebrating the music of Cole Porter - Without Words. It has been released worldwide to celebrate Cole Porter’s birthday. I am exceptionally proud of this new album.

The music of Cole Porter has been loved by generations across the globe. He was one of the rare composers who wrote both melody and lyrics, and as such you often hear his compositions with these two components married together. As an instrumentalist, I have always adored the melodies and the harmonies that Cole Porter wrote. This album is a celebration of some of those melodies - without the words.

Every track has been arranged based on the original structure, progressions and musical intent - with a few alterations to suit the the playing style of both Glenn Amer and myself.

Recorded at Underwood Studios in Sydney's Blue Mountains the audio experience for the listener is meant to be an intimate one as if you were popping a bottle of champagne and having Glenn and myself in your living room and serenading you with these melodies.

Vov Dylan

VOV DYLAN IS AN AUSTRALIAN VIOLINIST WHO HAS MANY STRINGS TO HIS BOW.

A third generation musician and a second generation Violinist, Vov grew up with music in every aspect of his life. Making his first debut in newspapers at the age of 21 months old, there was no stopping him. At 6 years of age, Vov had his first paid performance and the world began to open up.

Vov soon found that where many peers focused on a style of music being Classical or Jazz or Gypsy etc - he became focused on the Violin, leading him to have an appreciation and an ability to play all styles of music on the one instrument in Vov's words "I play the Violin because I LOVE the Violin, not because of a style of music or a particular piece - rather, I like to find a way to make the Violin sing any piece of music - whether it is written for the Violin or not!”.

With this approach, Vov has amassed a performance repertoire that is enormous. Comfortable performing everything from Solo Bach and the mainstream Classical repertoire, to Folk, Gypsy, Continental, Jazz, Hollywood, Broadway, Pop, Rock and even Disco!

2007 saw Vov grow from being 'support act' Violinist to headline entertainer where he formed THE PALACE ORCHESTRA and went on tour in Australia performing light popular classics, helping to establish him as one of his generations leading instrumental variety performers in Australia.

A collaboration between Vov, Underwood Studios (in Sydney’s Blue Mountains), and Fanfare Classics started in 2014. This an artistic combination has resulted in 15 albums to date (7 of which are with Pianist Glenn Amer). Covering a vast musical repertoire including: Classical, Jazz, Cocktail, Contemporary, World and even Children’s Lullabies. 

Further to Vov’s performing and recording works, he began an association with Pianist Panos Karan and the charity 'Keys Of Change' which has seen Vov travel to and be involved with youth orchestras in Japan, Ghana, Mexico and India. The charity is very dear to Vov in that it helps bring music and music education to children who are in some of the worst life, and psychological conditions.

February 2020, Vov Dylan and Panos Karan performed a sold out concert at the Sydney Opera House, performing the Franck Violin Sonata among several other works.

VOV DYLAN’S PASSION IS THE VIOLIN. 

From doing international performances, recordings, teaching, international masterclasses, orchestral tuition - or just sitting at home and serenading the family - Vov and his Violin are never far apart.
