Next November 19th, Francesco Tristano will share the stage with the BBC Concert Orchestra as part of the London Jazz Festival.
This concert features an improvised piano concerto, ‘Island Nation’, the first of Francesco’s compositions for orchestra and piano since 1997. To open the concert Tristano collides with Bach, giving his own interpretation of the Baroque composer’s intricate and feisty Piano Concerto in D minor.
You can watch an interpretation of ‘Island Nation’ on Boiler Room recorded with MDR Symphony Orchestra & Kristjan Järvi.
Before the presentation, Francesco will be with Sean Rafferty on BBC Radio 3 on Friday at 4.30 PM (UK time), you can find it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b082kvhr
