Francesco Tristano presents his new album, ‘‘Idiosynkrasia’’ at Café de la Danse, on Saturday, January 15, 2011.
The exceptional performance of a piano prodigy abolishing hierarchies between styles in order to free his music: neither jazz, nor classical, absolutely techno!
‘‘Francesco Tristano takes on an entirely new challenge once again, fully justified thanks to his faultless musicianship and vision.’’ (The Milk Factory)
‘‘A sonata of the third kind. Sublime!’’ (SO JAZZ)
‘‘On Idiosynkrasia, the virtuoso ends up to explore his instrument’s possibilities with a breathtaking mastery.’’ (MAGIC)
ARANDEL will open the show, flooding the audience with his mysterious sound dogma, a radically organic lo-fi space opera, already praised on its album “In D”, tribute to Terry Riley.
“Who, or what is Arandel is something of a mystery, and every effort is made to blur the track as much as possible. “In D” though, is a truly magnificent record” (The Milk Factory)
“The most innovative music of the moment. A treasure of imagination.’’ (LES INROCKS)
