The Italian Cultural Institute of Brussels presents the Belgian Italian Jazz Festival in the Belgian capital on 17 and 18 March.

Two days, four concerts and 14 artists on stage.

17 March is dedicated to the piano, with a performance from two groups: the emerging duo ‘Synolon’, consisting of Gabriele Di Franco‘s guitar and Francesco Negro’s piano, and the jazz pianist Nicola Andrioli.

At a time when styles of music are blurring together, Gabriele and Francesco have decided to create a project that brings together the worlds they love.

Acoustic sounds mingle with electronic and modern sounds; jazz/folk accompaniments lead to moments of pure improvisation.

Both composers and instrumentalists, they have managed to express their individual spirits in ‘Synolon’.

Nicola Andrioli converses with the classics through improvisation and exploration of the unknown.

His artistic project, entitled ‘Dialogando con i classico’ (Dialoguing with the Classics), stems from the desire to establish a deep contact with the musical and sonic material, far beyond stylistic barriers.

A journey into the memory of ancient melodies with a spontaneous impulse towards music to come.

The piano as a narrator beyond space and time.

The repertoire includes improvisations on classical piano themes taken from Chopin, Ravel and Bach.

18 March is dedicated to strings in jazz.

The ‘Moon Souvenirs’ trio, consisting of violin, viola and double bass, will warm up the audience for the last scheduled performance:

a jazz quartet and a string quartet will perform the new jazz suite dedicated to Dante Alighieri and composed by Angelo Gregorio.
