Dimitri Naïditch, a charismatic concert pianist and Rachmaninov specialist, who also accompanies huge jazz musicians like Didier Lockwood and Richard Galliano, has two hearts that he manages to ensure beat in unison in original concert performances. The trio of piano, drums and double bass weaves its way through a spectacular bi-tonal score: playing the iconic works from the classical repertoire with great technical mastery, it reinterprets and gives anew personality in the finely chased jazz tones of Dimitri Naiditch’s arrangements. By using two languages to resonate in these classical compositions, the trio reveals new facets and reconciles two traditionally antipodal musical sensibilities.

Even in the artistic sphere, and when you have the job and passion to program a festival like Les Nuits Musicales du Suquet, you can’t be impervious to the general mood and tensions in the world around you: so I set the tone of this 2019 program in part as a reaction to the ambient unease and anxiety of everyday life for many people. I wanted a festive event that would act as an antidote!
Emblematic scores, a romantic and emotionally charged feel; vivid, light, haunting compositions that speak to many people’s melodic unconscious. And then the performers: I wanted to invite remarkable artists, pure talent of course, but also outstanding, endearing and charismatic personalities able to play and share emotion; artists with a communicative originality, well-known and rising young talents, able to break through the classic boundaries and enrich other musical sensibilities. Here are some of the ingredients in this 2019 festival, which has been deliberately concocted as an optimistic potion. So, let there be light and... hold the joy!
