Francesco Tristano

Hear Francesco Tristano's new album for the first time and from a whole new perspective in this intimate performance. The pianist performs as the audience surround him on the stage and the choir stalls of Royal Festival Hall.

In this special evening, Tristano returns to his first passion with a selection of newly composed works for solo piano, taken from his first solo piano recording in five years, Piano Circle Songs, that also features award-winning Canadian pianist and songwriter Chilly Gonzales.

Having spent many years working with electronic music, Francesco’s latest recording explores the gentler, more innocent side of his creative personality with simple, poignant melodies being the key, in part inspired by becoming a father.

An eclectic musician who moves easily from classical to electronic, he breaks down barriers between musical genres, collaborating regularly with artists like Derrick May, Carl Craig, Jeff Mills, Mortiz Von Oswald and Alice Sara Ott. He performs internationally and recent highlights include the London Jazz Festival with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Sonar Barcelona, Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Cite de la Musique and Rheinghau Music Festival.

Now you can see him live at Royal Festival Hall, as he moves back to his roots with songs from Piano Circle Songs.
