2011 Tour in Centre-Val de Loire region (France)

Transcription, Improvisation, The Musical and The Imaginary

American pianist Christopher Falzone, 2010 laureate of the 9th International piano competition of Orleans, offered an eclectic programme around transcribing universe. The young pianist is himself an excellent improviser. The emphasis was on the similarity of transcription techniques and improvisation ones, and at the same time on processing differences of musical lines. In the two scenarios, transcriber imagination is requested to perfectly make the atmosphere, timbres, the piece impact but also to begin with composition data and explore new paths thanks to improvisation.

“Transformation and durability”, “techniques of the future”: these are the reflection themes which lead to transcription and techniques mentioned in Falzone programme, who masters them perfectly for his youth. Everything is executed to guarantee an appreciable result permitting profitable exchanges between the young artist, music students and the audience, as the previous years.
