Francesco Tristano gives Polish premiere of Island Nation with Rumon Gamba

11 October 2016

On 13 October Francesco Tristano gives the Polish premiere of his ‘free’ Piano Concerto, Island Nation, with the Szczecin Philharmonic and Rumon Gamba.

The performance is part of the orchestra’s #SoundLab series and Francesco immediately follows it with a live set in the lobby.

Hailed by Frankfurter Rundschau, as “a figure of hope who aims to inject his audience, a dwindling species of concertgoers interested in classical music, with fresh blood” this performance follows the successful premiere of the concerto at the Gewandhaus Liepzig with Kristjan Jarvi. Watch the performance of Island Nation.

Francesco’s recent and upcoming highlights include: Royal Festival Hall BBC Concert Orchestra, hr-Sinfonieorchester, Eurasia Festival, Alte Oper Frankfurt and Orchestre National de Lille.
