Chucho Valdés & Gonzalo Rubalcaba – 20 nov 2017 – La Seine Musicale

The duel pianos is a rare exercise, an exciting mikado that unites two protagonists leaning on 176 equally distributed keys.

 

Chucho Valdés and Gonzalo Rubalcaba are two luminous beacons of latin jazz, masters of the art of musical conversation, linked by a friendship dating back several decades.

 

As Gonzalo Rubalcaba says: “We both write piano music and like to reinvent tunes that range from popular and classic Cuban repertoire hits to the music of Thelonious Monk.”

Spell of rhythms, lyric power of the musical themes, almost sculptural dimension of these two figures able to produce the most refined poetry as the most stormy chords : this performance at the summit is presented exclusively and for the first time in France in the auditorium of La Seine Musicale.

 

“Our duo has a historical relationship with the Cuban piano tradition,” says Chucho; that’s what gives this project something very special, like a sound that has emerged naturally, organically. Our two pianos already play as one. ”

 

Spell of rhythms, powerful lyrics related to the themes , sculptural dimension of these two figures able to produce the most refined poetry as the most stormy accords: this performance at the summit is presented exclusively and for the first time in France in the auditorium of La Seine Musicale.
