Francesco Tristano at La Folle Jornée de Nantes

Francesco Tristano was in France over the weekend, performing on Saturday at the renowned classical festival in Nantes, "La Folle Journée de Nantes", which takes place over a period of 5 days.

Tristano, over the years, has created an intriguing brand where his artistry carries a duality of electronic and classical genres; he performs regularly as a classical pianist and separately, under the same name as an electronic producer.

For this performance however, Tristano performed under his classical persona as a classical artist alongside American concert pianist Bruce Brubaker. The duo performed Liszt’s “Years of Pilgrimage” and merged some American minimalist repertoire and Tristano’s own pieces in with it.
