Baptiste Trotignon & Nicholas Angelich
Incursions of jazzmen in “classical” concert often lead to opportunities through interpretation (cf.John Scofield and Peter Erskine) and writing. Famous jazz pianist Baptiste Trotignon chose the writing and composed his first concerto for piano entitled Different Spaces for pianist Nicholas Angelich, his long-standing partner of musical impromptus and for conductor Jonathan Darlington. Also included in this recording his last pieces Trois pièces pour deux pianos and Trois préludes pour piano seul, that is what we call a clamorous start for Baptiste Trotignon’s catalogue with Éditions Durand.
