Alan Benzie Trio with Kristof Bacso
Check out the latest Festival programme here!
The pianist’s Trio is one of the finest in the country: at times, sensitive; other times, strident, but always lyrical, bright and positive. Benzie is inspired by impressionist classical piano music, Central-Eastern European traditional music and Japanese animation – perhaps a stange mix, but the result is super-exciting jazz, packed with explosive virtuosity, from a band that has a unique empathy. Tonight they are joined by the stellar saxophonist, Kristof Bacso, one of Hungary’s foremost jazz musicians.
