Francesco Tristano

Francesco Tristano performs at the Weather Festival in Paris with Orchestre l'Amoureux

5 June 2015

Polyarts/HarrisonParrott artist Francesco Tristano and techno pioneer Derek May took Paris by storm at the open air Weather Festival on 4 June (approximately 15,000 audience), performing an electro, piano and orchestral concert with the Orchestre lamoureux, conducted by Dzijan Emin and arranged by May.

Francesco and Derrick have a long and successful history of working together on new projects - including original compositions, electro club dates and festivals, and contemporary classical concerts with a twist which blur the lines between various genres.

Watch clips from the concert, filmed by ARTE.

Recent and upcoming dates for Francesco include a recital at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London with Alice Sara Ott on 11 June as part of the International Piano Series, a performance at the Théâtre du Châtelet with Michel Portal, a residency with Orchestre National de Lille and a collaboration with Kristjan Järvi and the MDR Sinfonieorchester Leipzig.
