Jean-François Zygel / André Manoukian

From classical to jazz


Share Tweet
With their piano, the two artists compete in a raging encounter based on an exchange of variations and improvisations between classical music jazz.
As Liszt was provoked in pianistic games, like the pianists of Harlem were dueling, André Manoukian and Jean-François Zygel refer to each other from specific themes or in a kind of difficulty common, like playing a ballad just on the white keys and then on the black keys.
The fight is good and gives the opportunity to meet Brel, Bach, Bill Evans, Brahms, Beethoven, Duke Ellington in pieces of bravery or penetrating emotion.
