TROTIGNON Piano Concerto 'Different Spaces'

Following the release of 12 jazz albums since the early 2000s, the love story between Naïve and Baptiste Trotignon is given a new impulse through an unexpected project that reflects the pianist s deep involvement in all sorts of music. Baptiste Trotignon s activity as a composer has been constant for 20 years, although it has reached a real maturity recently, marked by the first performance of 'Different Spaces' in Bordeaux in 2012 and that of his trio 'Subterfuges' at the prestigious London Wigmore Hall, by Philippe Cassard, David Grimal and Anne Gastinel.

Baptiste Trotignon s long friendship with internationally renowned Classical pianist Nicholas Angelich resulted in the astonishing adventure of his 4-movement Piano Concerto, full of colours and structured around several sophisticated musical ideas and influences. Commissioned by the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, it received an enthusiastic welcome and Baptiste Trotignon was selected as one of the three finalists of the Composer of the Year category at the 2014 Victoires de la Musique Classique.
