Ferenc Snétberger & Anders Jormin / Enrico Pieranunzi Duo

Dorfkirche Riehen
Wednesday, 10 May

Born in northern Hungary in 1957, guitarist/composer Ferenc Snétberger was the youngest son of a family of musicians. His music is inspired by the Roma tradition of his homeland, by Brazilian music and flamenco, but also by classical guitar playing and jazz. In 1995 he composed his concerto for guitar and orchestra, “In Memory of My People,” to mark the 50th year after the end of the Holocaust. It has been performed by the composer himself with chamber orchestras in Hungary, Italy, and Germany and also at the U.N. Headquarters in New York (for International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2007). Snétberger has released numerous other albums, including the recording of the trio "Titok" with Swedish bassist Anders Jormin and U.S. drummer Joey Baron.
Enrico Pieranunzi is considered Europe's leading modern jazz pianist. He has already been awarded the "Django D'Or" three times as the best European jazz musician; his awards as Italy's "Jazz Musician of the Year" are almost uncountable. His cool yet warm piano playing picks up where Bill Evans left off in 1980. “A new approach to the top jazz piano world”—this is how none other than McCoy Tyner described the pianist. Pieranunzi has also worked with numerous filmmakers throughout his career; he has appeared in more than 20 films by the Italian master director Federico Fellini. In addition, Pieranunzi also performs unaccompanied and presents new duo formations again and again.
Tickets are CHF 36.10-76.90.
