Glenn Gould Gathering

Francesco Tristano performs at Glenn Gould Gathering curated by Ryuichi Sakamoto

14 December 2017

Francesco Tristano performs in concerts celebrating the 85th anniversary of Glenn Gould’s birth, the solitary musician who was born in Canada, on 15 - 17 December. This anniversary coincides with the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation. The Glenn Gould Foundation has launched several projects in 2017 to commemorate these two milestones in collaboration with curators and producers around the world. 

The Glenn Gould Gathering takes place at Sogetsu Hall in Aoyama, Tokyo and is curated by Ryuichi Sakamoto, who has admired Gould’s artistry and his unique live performances since his early childhood. 

This follows Francesco’s recent success with the Orchestra National de Lille in a series of concerts featuring his own compositions and his Goldberg City Variations project with live visuals. Francesco’s other recent and upcoming highlights include: BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Festival Hall, hr-Sinfonieorchester, Szczecin Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Nacional de España, Cite de la Musique, Berlin Funkhaus and La Seine Musicale
