MY CURRENT MUSICAL PROJECTS
Updated : May 8, 2021
As most pianists, I have been always practicing new classical pieces, in solo piano or chamber music. These pieces are performed during public or private events in the framework of amateurs musical associations to which I belong (PianoThé, AMA Lyon).
Besides, I am pursuing a number of musical projects for which I am searching contracts or gigs :
Solo piano (jazz and improvisation) : around my recent CD « Bronxtet in Black-and-White », a series of themes originally created for my quartet, enriched with standards, or my 'Couperin Emoi' project, where I play baroque pieces and free improvisations
Piano-double-bass duet with Michel Colon (b). Here we play a set of compositions from various periods of my career, plus some standards
Tales in music with Claude Guigues (taleteller) : in this new project, I am improvising to support/illustrate a text performed by the storyteller, like pianists in the old time of mute cinema
Bronxtet quartet with Serge Burghard (ts), Jean-Paul Gouttenoire (b) and Laurent Pancot (dms) : an experienced, 7-year old combo with an original repertoire of about than 50 compositions
The brand-new Jazztronomik septet, with Pierre-Etienne Parent (tp, flgh), Michel Reyes (tb), Aymeric Bonnardel (as), Alexandre Franchimont (ts), Michel Colon (b) and Malo Thiery (dms). We expect to start playing in public from 2021, with, again, a repertoire of original compositions and arrangements by myself.
