JACQUES LOUSSIER TRIO
Lasts 90’ inc. interval.
Jacques Loussier Trio is getting ready for an unforgettable performance with a jazzy touch on the most arresting masterpieces of classical music, in their 50th anniversary. Earning reputation after being discovered by a Decca producer in London by “pure chance”, the ensemble, since then, has sold more than 6 million records, giving some 200 live performances annually, receiving a standing ovation in each country they visited. Loussier, the founder of the group catching the attention of any listener with its unique approach to classical music, has such a fluent interpretation due to his loyalty to the original while enriching his Bach performance with his classical background as well as jazz, contrary to what the other jazz masters do. This loyalty is one of those attributes that distinguish him from others... During the performance to be held in the garden of the Archaeological Museum, jazz and classical music will have an eternal rendez-vous! The 50th anniversary of the grand trio will turn into a carnival with the participation of you, the music lovers.
