River Jazz Festival: Anne Wolf's 50th Birthday

Tuesday Jan 23 2018 - 20:00
Théâtre Marni
Rue de Vergnies, 25
1050 Ixelles
To celebrate her 50th birthday, pianist-composer Anne Wolf invites us to a party where her compositions will take centre stage. Thirty years of a professional musical career marked by beautiful encounters, starting with classical music, moving on to French chanson, African, Brazilian and soul music, and the contemporary jazz of Pierre van Dormael! Alongside her prolific career as sidewoman, she has always preserved her own creative space, composing and arranging for her own trio. In the first act, she will present her new project in a quartet, including unreleased material. Then, she has asked two outstanding pianists of her generation, Nathalie Loriers and Ivan Paduart, to interpret some of her compositions in the manner of their choice, adapting to the musicians who will be present on the night. To ensure her birthday is an occasion to remember, she will be joined by a few surprise guests including Portuguese singer Magda Mendes.
