CARTE BLANCHE – Opening concert

Kris Defoort

THU. 25.11.21 – 8 pm
Kris DEFOORT – piano / Michel MASSOT – tuba/trombone / Pierre BERNARD – flutes / Benjamin SAUZEREAU – guitar

After the huge success of his opera ‘The Time of Our Singing’, Kris Defoort offers us a surprising opening of the River Jazz Festival in a very different setting. Armed with a carte blanche he had a fabulous opportunity to explore an intimate adventure in purely improvised chamber music. An evening of ‘instant composing’ with two musical companions of more than 30 years – Michel Massot on tuba and Pierre Bernard on flute – as well as talented guitarist Benjamin Sauzereau.

An opportunity to experience true surprise and fall under the spell of these four musicians who create a moment suspended in time. As Ornette Coleman said: “Just follow the sound and we’ll be in the same room together”…

Thanks to his work as a pianist, conductor and opera and theatre composer, Kris Defoort is a major figure on the European music scene. His works are characterised by combinations of jazz and classical influences, original compositions and improvisation. For the opening concert of the River Jazz Festival Kris seized the opportunity offered by his carte blanche and produced a work that thrills to the core.

“Kris Defoort is the embodiment of music itself. It is a living part of his body, flesh and mind. By which I mean all music: learned and improvised, ancient and modern, classical, jazz and popular.’ Serge Martin.
