With the Zurich Ballett performing Anna Karenina
From 20th to 25th February, I have been touring for the Zurich Ballett with Anna Karenina (directing C. Spuck) opening the famous Art Festival in Hong Kong. What a pleasure to provide about 20 min of life music, as soloist and with Mezzo Lin Shi for Anna Karenina Ballet with the Zurich Ballett. The 4 solo piano pieces and 3 songs from Rachmaninoff are amazing.
It has been a very exciting and discovering new things to discover in Hong Kong.
With +7hours from our time, the jet lag is obvious for all of us.
I took in charge the only rehearsal we had with the singer and with pianist Luigi Largo.
Next meeting I play the piano on stage for a sound check and first rehearsal with singer, in situ, and then, very fast you are on stage !
It was specially enjoyable the 2nd show. Not only we got a good critic, but to be congratulated at the exit of the theater is touching.
Thank you Hong Kong and thank you Zurich Ballett and his amazing director, Christian Spuck. What an honor to be part of your work.
Coming back in Zurich, i remember working on some music in my head, on a theme from John Lewis, « Django » presented exclusively here.
