ROBERTO NEGRO | SOLO

Pianist and composer Roberto Negro was born in Torino and grew up in Kinshasa, before studying in Chambéry then Paris.
A linchpin member of the Orleans-based group, Tricollectif, founded in 2011, Roberto feeds on intersections and meetings: theatre (Cie Les Veilleurs), vocals (Élise Caron, Xavier Machault) and an appetence for duos (Théo Ceccaldi, Émile Parisien).

DUO LES MÉTANUITS | With Emile Parisien

An outstanding work of re-composition by the visionary and mischievous Paris-based Italian pianist Roberto Negro, Les Métanuits is a playful duo adaptation of György Ligeti’s first string quartet, Les Métamorphoses Nocturnes. Roberto shares this impish adventure—and a passion for Ligeti’s music—with his fellow countryman, the world-class saxophonist Émile Parisien.

PAPIER CISEAU | With Michele Rabbia, Emile Parisien and Valentin Ceccaldi

Known for his artfully adventurous trio dadada—whose 2018 debut took home Album of the Year at France’s prestigious Victoires du Jazz—pianist and composer Roberto Negro’s new project expands on that work, both conceptually and in membership. Negro adds bassist Valentin Ceccaldi (Sylvain Darrifourcq, Manuel Hermia) to longtime collaborators Emile Parisien saxophone and Michele Rabbia drums/electronics for poetic yet playful sound-shaping.

Full of implicit narratives, dreamlike nocturnes, and a penchant for surprising scene shifts, the paths Papier Ciseau takes are lyrical, intense, and always unexpected.

Presented in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto, the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver and the Consulate General of France in Vancouver.
