LAURENT COULONDRE TRIO FOLLOWED BY LAURENT COULONDRE SEXTET
TRIBUTE TO MICHEL PETRUCCIANI

Concert with intermission 8:30-9:15 pm / 10:00-10:45

A brilliant tribute from a pianist to his master

2019 marked the 20th anniversary of Michel Petrucciani’s death, an occasion for Laurent Coulondre, the new French piano sensation, to pay a moving tribute to his master. Released in August, “Michel on my mind” was met with universal acclaim by the media and the public. Aiming to honor the melodious, subtle and swinging way Michel Petrucciani encouraged to play, Laurent Coulondre has surrounded himself with bassist Jérémy Bruyère and incandescent André Ceccarelli in order to brilliantly revive the pianist’s repertoire. Presented in two parts, the concert will start as a trio, only to become a never-before-seen sextet formation – Laurent Coulondre is inviting three wind instrumentalists onstage, replicating the formation featured on Petrucciani’s 1997 album “Both Worlds”. To bring this anniversary edition to a close, this pianist with unmatched energy, generosity, and personality will prove once more that jazz is a language he commands with masterful hand (both of them in fact!)

“I have rarely heard a pianist capture the essence of his music with such accuracy.” Alexandre Petrucciani, son of Michel Petrucciani
