Dave Brubeck took Jazz to another level, with an exquisitely experimental production bordering on contemporary music and the search for new sounds, however always managing to bring the general public closer (“Time out” from 1959 was the first album jazz to have reached one million sales). Milhad’s pupil, pioneer of odd rhythms in jazz, standard bearer of the “Third Stream” (the fusion of jazz and classical), leader of one of the most popular groups in the world, singular and recognizable pianist, Brubeck undoubtedly left the music of the twentieth century a very rich legacy.
To celebrate this artist, the concert repertoire will be entirely dedicated to his music, arranged in an orchestral format by Duccio Bertini, with an ensemble with a sound on the border between classical and jazz and including some of the best musicians of the Italian jazz scene. The concert will be enriched by the presence of the magnificent soloist Pietro Tonolo on tenor and soprano sax as guest of the project.
