Luciano Biondini Duo / Vincent Peirani New Trio

Museum Tinguely
Monday, 08 May

Luciano Biondini has long been one of the handful of outstanding European accordion virtuosos who are at home in jazz but who also deeply committed to Mediterranean music. In his solo program “Senza Fine,” Biondini has taken on the canzoni of the 1960s to 1980s. Biondini interprets the popular hits of authors such as Pino Daniele, Fiorenzo Carpi, and of course, Ennio Morricone with absolute dedication and untamed passion. The jazz critic Christian Rentsch states, “The way Luciano Biondini doesn’t reveal the sentimental melody right from the start, but rather sneaks up on the theme and repeatedly alienates it throughout the piece, plays around it, lets it disappear briefly and conjures it up again, that’s great mastery.” Biondini comes to Museum Tinguely with the fantastic guitarist Bebbo Ferro.
French accordionist, singer, and composer Vincent Peirani was born in Nice in 1980. He discovered jazz at the age of 16 and soon after began studying jazz in Paris. Since 2011, Peirani has been playing regularly in the quartet of the Korean singer Youn Sun Nah and in a duo with Emile Parisien. Now, he is reshuffling the cards again: In a trio with Federico Casagrande on guitar and drummer Ziv Ravitz, he lives out his penchant for rock and electronic music on "Jokers." He immerses himself in a cinematic world of sound with the power of jazz's freedom, which surprises and enchants in equal measure, with tension, poetry, rhythm, fantasy, virtuosic outbursts, and intimate moments. The tone is reminiscent of a film noir—until the trio sets the screen ablaze.
Tickets are CHF 55.50-74.90.
