Chilly Gonzales

With a rap background and classical and jazz training, this pianist won't be put in a box.

The Grammy-winning musician Chilly Gonzales is equally known for bestselling albums Solo Piano I and Solo Piano II, his showmanship and his composition for award-winning stars.

Gonzo, as he is known to close collaborators, performs and writes songs with Jarvis Cocker, Feist and Drake, among others.

Following a number of sold-out London shows over the past few years, Gonzales returns to the stage with a new programme that opens, as always, with various medleys of intimate pieces from the Solo Piano Trilogy.

Both hits and hidden surprises from the rest of his repertoire are found interspersed with new festive masterclasses, full of playful explanations about how music works.

This December show, so close to the holidays, contains some very Chilly Christmas surprises.

For this tour, Chilly Gonzales is joined on stage for a portion of the show by Stella Le Page on cello and vocals.

Le Page has worked with artists including Plan B, Primary 1, Château Marmont and Benjamin Clementine.

He plays like a dream, tender revels punctuated with comic smacks in the high notes
By turns wistful, plaintive and overwrought, Solo Piano III is a fitting virtuosic finale to this Renaissance Man's excellent adventure.
staggeringly beautiful
