It may also be the first time that purists from the classical and techno camps actually agree on something — that they don’t know quite what to make of this young musician who refuses to stick to the rules. When Francesco Tristano and his trio, Aufgang, began to play techno using sheet music, the audience were puzzled. Classical music lovers may feel equally baffled when they hear a pianist blend and mix his own composition — just like a DJ — into a piece by Frescobaldi.
The piano virtuoso from Luxembourg will be wowing the audience at CAMA ATK on Jun. 26 from 9pm. See www.cama-atk.com for more information on the artist and tickets.
